My name is Samuel and as I stated in a previous message on this forum, I work for the Catholic University of Valencia at its multimedia lab.
Recently we moved from Wirecast to vMix for its Call function (it needs SO less resources on the guest side than Rendezvous) for the most important live shows. We’ll be using Streamyard for the regulars webinars but I’ll miss the customization that we all achieve by using a proper software like vMix.
My main concern is that there is no EASY service that let’s your guest to send their webcam and screen (which always seems to be a PowerPoint) at the same time. And I don’t want Skype (NDI problems) or Zoom (security reasons and you just have to pray so any guest doesn’t leave the room as it will change the order of their signals).
So I’m trying to find an EASY solution for a guest to send us its “PPT signal”. And I know that Powerpoint has already built a function like that but the whole purpose is to take away all the work from the guest so they only have to dedicate 5 minutes before the show, not 25 minutes trying to explain them how to make that happen.
I have an idea that I’m currently working with a programmer friend to solve this
And of course I’ve done the most obviuos thing: asking previously for the PPT and move through the slides when the guest says so. But that’s a seedy solution for me.
How do you deal with that? Would you be interested in seeing “my solution”?
