Giles Warham is our guest. His organisation, Step Back in Time TV CIC, is a not-for-profit community interest company. They specialise in live streaming and live video production. They can live stream your events or set you up to do it yourself. They can also provide technical support and informal training – either in person or via RTC. This YouTube playlist bears witness to some of their excellent work.
Giles will talk about his work at CommCon and The World of Live Streaming (WOLS).
A group of friends who haven’t seen each other for 7 days decide to talk about the British 220-volt outlets and plugs.
There’s way too much to say about CommCon, it was successful beyond my expectations. Sponsors were amazing, the venue amazing, the people amazing, outdoor entertainment at night, the pub, the people of Surrey. But, to describe it? You had to be there.
We talk to Alan Duric, co-founder of Wire, on Wire and about Wire for Teams. This was our first view of the multiperson video chat. The production is a bit rough, as we ran into some of the kinds of issues you find when you do something like this stream with no safety net. Get on Wire and see how it works on Windows, OS X, web and mobiles.

Author and musician Ethan Winer joins to talk about a number of Visions! I first heard Ethan on the SGU podcast a few weeks ago, where he spoke about the myth of expensive speaker cables for audiophiles. When I contacted him for a guest appearance on VUC, I found out he is also a musician and has numerous other interests that we’ll enjoy sharing with the VUC community.He’s been an engineer, built his studio and wrote the book The Audio Expert. There’s much to discuss, but we’ve promised to keep it within the usual hour.

Ethan Winer’s The Audio Expert is in its second edition.
Commcon is the first UK-based conference for the RTC community (and the second in Europe). It’s a conference run by the community itself, which means that everyone is equal and no one is given any special treatment over their fellow delegates.
CommCon will be a little different to the conferences you’re used to attending; it will be a bringing together of the best RTC minds from all over the world in one residential setting in the English countryside near Gatwick airport – the first residential conference of its kind in the Open-Source RTC community. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with colleagues, friends and peers, as well as making new connections with people in the industry, in an inclusive, collaborative and friendly environment.
