'Google Hangout meets Second Life': Uni of Wollongong start-up holds biggest videoconference ever
The University of Wollongong-based inventors of spatial audio technology sold to Dolby for over $6 million in 2008 have just held the world's largest video meeting - 67 separately logged-in people simultaneously - and are seeking Series-A funding up to $2.5 million to take the technology behind it to universities worldwide.
There are four families of patents behind iSee's video meeting platform, which at 60 simultaneous logins requires individual participants to have 95 per cent less bandwidth than existing videoconferencing technology.
"In traditional videoconferencing, the extra bandwidth all the participants require to accommodate a new participant is the square of the total number of participants, so it just doesn't scale," Ramin Marzbani, a director at iSee's owner, Smart Services CRC, says.
