Welcome2TheShow™ believes in simplified access to Webcasting services. W2TS has created a unique application called Webcaster Pro™ that works on all Windows based machines.
This application is easily downloadable and installed fully via a purchase of a license from Welcome2TheShow™.
Licenses can be purchased on a daily, weekly, monthly, yearly or permanent basis.
How Does It Work
With Webcaster Pro™, you have the ability to Webcast a single stream or multiple streams via Flash™ and Windows Media™
Because all of our configurations are driven via XML files, we can create unique configurations for multiple streams that can combine Windows Media™ and Flash™, plus multiple audio formats.
Multiple streams (MBR-Multiple Bit Rate) are crucial for networks that have fluctuations in overall incoming bandwidth to each receive site.
With W2TS Webcaster Pro™ software, you also have the ability to send in real time up to four separate audio/video streams. This is key when you have an event that requires translation services.
There are two to three easy steps required to start your Webcast using W2TS Webcaster Pro™
- Open Webcaster Pro™ and browse for Webcast Configuration XML file supplied by W2TS. In this case we are using Webcaster – One Stream Flash Only (See Image 1&2)
- Second step is to browse for an Encoder configuration, and in this case we will use Flash-Live1 (See Image 3)
- Third optional step is to browse for a local Microsoft PowerPoint™ presentation that will be streamed live and in sync to video and audio. (See Image 4)
- Once all the steps have taken place as above, you can click on the Start button, and you are streaming and archiving your Webcast live

What If I Don’t Want To Stream Live
Not an issue. With Webcaster Pro™ any XML file can be created to archive ONLY to the local machine c/w timing markers for slide transitions.
Once your session is over, a folder is created automatically on your desktop called “archive” and it will provide the appropriate .flv (Flash) or .wmv (Windows Media Video) file that has just been recorded.
Why Record Local vs Remote Server
With W2TS Webcaster Pro™, all archive footage is recorded locally on the clients machine. This is due to the fact that in the event of a network failure, the archive will not be lost or corrupted.
Webcaster Pro™ actually writes two files while archiving. One file that is hidden in the file structure of the application, and one that is transferred over to the archive folder on the desktop once the session has concluded.
How Do Clients See The Webcast
At Welcome2TheShow™ we offer a full turnkey solution based on each and every clients specific needs. Private URL for the Webcast is provided on a “per event” basis, or on a permanent basis. With the creation of this URL, W2TS provides full registration services in multiple languages, and all administration for the site (ie: live chat questions, database of registrants, link for Webcast page, etc) is included in the cost of the site creation. Administration is secure, and only the administrator for the Webcast is given access to this information.
All “live” Webcast questions sent in by participants are noted with the participants name, and this “chat” is fully archived so that the client can respond directly after the Webcast.
The cost for our solution is varied. We offer fully configured encoders that can be shipped worldwide. These encoders are fully configured for YOUR Webcast. Price is based on a daily or per event basis.
If you have your own encoder, we can simply “remote” into your system and load our software on that machine. As noted above, we can license the software on a daily, weekly, monthly, event or yearly basis.
If you wish to do only an audio with slides Webcast or audio only, we can provide “remote” access to one of our encoders, and supply a telephone number for you to call into.
If you have an existing Videoconference system, you may use this to connect to one of our encoders to send video, audio and data to your participants.
All pricing is based on a per event/client basis, so please contact email@example.com for pricing.
