Share your soundworld live!
liveSHOUT is an interactive audio streaming mobile app. The app is designed to facilitate multiple streaming points and multiple listening points, what we call ‘distributed listening’.
The app has a simple interface which has been designed to facilitate interaction while on the move. We envisage that liveSHOUT will be of interest to audio enthusiasts, sound practitioners, journalists and event promoters. liveSHOUT tries to transmit and receive audio with the best possible quality dependent on the network connection. The user has full control over parameters which affect the performance of the streaming and the quality of the audio.
Stream live soundwalks with high quality audio, collect multiple audio live streams for concert presentation or recording, use it as a baby monitor and much more… Try it and let us know about your projects using liveSHOUT!
