The Social Video Network combines traditional online community building features with a two-way interactive video and chat interface. Users can communicate with each other through the video interface on a one-to-one or one-to-many basis.
The CEO of Broadcast Inc says it’s:
“the ultimate form of online social interaction and instant communication that combines the most popular aspects of social networking with our technologies.”
It caters for people with both voyeuristic tendencies – the ones that like to watch (I mean that in the nicest possible way) – and those that want to show off their talents to the world.
How it Works
Users are presented with a multi-view interface with three windows. The middle window shows the user’s feed being broadcast, the second window shows other people the user is watching and the third shows people that are watching the user.
The interface includes several interactive broadcast controls, the ability to ignore users and the ability to enter a private one-on-one chat.
You don’t need to have a webcam to join the Social Video Network – a feature is the ability to broadcast pre-recorded content or a playlist of favourite videos.
Broadcaster’s grand plans include developing a plugin for other social websites, such a MySpace and Facebook. It also hopes to integrate the technology in to portable devices, making it one of the largest players in the Social Video networking market.
