Operator 11 is a new social networking Internet Television service, combining streaming live video and audio casts. I recently participated in the first episode of Jason Calacanis and Friends, a live show on Operator 11.
Operator 11 is the full package enabling you to have your own live television network online, 24/7, for free… and it’s fun!
Your Own Live Television Network
If you ever wanted to have your own show live with user participation, than Operator 11 is the way to go. The Flash controls are intuitive and the quality isn’t too bad. As the director you can determine who is live and it lets you switch to different people with a click of the button.
Participants can request they be put on camera via a simple button which shakes their video on the directors screen.
Everyone in the live area can participate in the text chat that also gets displayed across the bottom of the video screen so people on the outside of the studio can see what the comments from the peanut gallery too.
Other cool features include drag and drop video sources which let you switch to pre-recorded clips and the whole show is recorded, saved and viewable to anyone who wasn’t there during the live recording.
Jason Calacanis And Friends
Back to the CalacanisCast, things were going smooth at first and then Jason managed to crash the servers causing everyone to go into a spin-off room.
After that, mayhem ensued and Jason began playing clips live off of YouTube and switching to shots of his dog Toro. Other highlights included Jay Adelson, CEO of Digg.com, and Robert Scoble who did a mighty fine Steve Ballmer impression.
I even got to say a few words but I was feeling shy in front of all the A-List bloggers; After all I am a nobody in the blogging world just like everyone else.
At the end of it all I had a lot of fun interacting with a bunch of different people from all over the world live and with video and sound. Operator 11 is sure to take off once more people start playing around with it.
If you do go over and sign up add me as a friend and let’s get together and chat face to face some time.
