HoloMeeting Feature Update: Livestream Recording
October 15, 2018
As mentioned in our recent HoloMeeting update blog, we have introduced a much-sought-after feature to our live stream option - the ability to record livestreams. This has impact for a range of different use cases including training and assessment as well as, of course, HoloLens remote assistance.
High Quality Recording
As regular HoloMeeting users will be aware, the live feed or live stream feature contains the option for streaming with low, medium or high latency. These options can be selected at any time, from the menu above the live stream feed by any participant within HoloMeeting itself.
When it comes to recording the user sharing their screen can still display it in low, medium or high depending on the bandwidth they have available but when they come to view the recording itself they will see it in high definition. This means that even if the livestream itself streamed in low-latency mode it would still be high quality when it came to viewing.
Impact on Remote Assistance
HoloLens remote assistance is one of the breakthrough use cases for Mixed Reality. Through the live view feature in HoloMeeting we have been able to bring remote assistance to life. And, as highlighted in previous updates, the live stream can be viewed across a range of different hardware including Windows 10 Desktop and Microsoft Mixed Reality Headsets. While the record feature is only available for HoloLens users it gives a great deal of scope for remote assistance scenarios where sessions can be recorded and reviewed at a later date, increasing transparency, accountability and improving processes for enterprise clients.
Similarly, these recordings can now be stored and shared as a living, working manual for businesses to access making Mixed Reality and HoloLens again the driver for enterprise innovation.
Security and Privacy for saved videos
While videos that are saved can be instantly shared within the application itself, when it comes to downloading the files, this can only be done via the HoloLens' local files therefore maintaining a degree of privacy and security. Videos can then, of course, simply be uploaded and shared to clients and colleagues via a range of options, including Onedrive at your own discretion.
More features to be announced as they come
As we are collaborating with businesses in our early access HoloMeeting Beta in order to meet client's needs, HoloMeeting is constantly being adjusted and improved. We are glad to keep you informed about the latest features.
