Default Re: Clearview, Evercast, Millicast, Etc.

Really useful info Hugh, thanks so much for putting it together and doing all that research.
It looks like Evercast is still the daddy.
I think I'll demo Sessionlink pro after what you've said, its more in my budget. I need some kind of solution asap. It doesn't look like the Covid situation is going away any time soon sadly.

Hugh,
Where did you read about Evercast upcoming reduced Beta at $300?

Shhhhhh Marti! I guess that's a piece of insider info.
You can register to be the first to know about their Freelancer option release on the site, but it doesn't mention a price yet.
If it still has the low latency of its big brother I would go for that deal straight away!

Thanks for the update. I went to the Evercast site and saw this
https://www.evercast.us/plans
It's $199 a month.

I personally deal with Evercast directly so I don't go to their site but I reached out to them to see what the "Freelancer" option is and how it differs from the "Creative Studio Pro" that I use .

Wow! even better.
I wonder what they will cut out to justify such a massive price difference?
Please share if you're allowed, but I suppose it will be secret until they release?

Our facility has been using Clearview, it kinda works but we've had some very annoyed clients. Video can dropout briefly occasionally but audio sync is the main issue.

We have experimented with Zoom (on clients requests!) and its a disaster unsurprisingly

I will look into Evercast but sounds very expensive even for a top facility

There are two issues we have, firstly its that whatever we do we are reliant on clients' broadband speed which is often not good enough (we think this is the main source of Clearview sync issues as it varies). Secondly, is that most clients actually prefer the more primitive method of us sending a video with temp mix so they can watch it at a time convenient for them - but the issues with this are QT render time and admin of note swapping. This is where we are at now and to streamline this we are using Vision or Frame.io. Vision comes as part of our facilites OM so its a no brainer. We have project spaces setup for cleints, they only need one login for the duration of the series and you can attached notes (less elegant than frame.io) keep track of sign of versions etc.
