Skyted is a noise isolation mask for calls and streaming @ CES 2023



Skyted Noise Isolation MaskToo often these days, we are forced into places that are not conducive to conversation. This is exacerbated when you’re on the phone or computer. This happens because microphones, in general, do not discriminate between sounds. These microphones pick up whatever sound they hear and push it to the other side of the call. In a loud area, this means it’s nearly impossible for the person on the other side of the call to hear anything you say. This is the problem that Skyted is hoping to solve.

What is Skyted?

Skyted is a headset, of sorts, intended to improve sound quality while in a loud environment. At first sight, it might appear to be a little odd. However, the design is well-tested for years. That’s because the device is modeled after the systems used on fighter jets. The device fits over the mouth as a full mask, allowing for sound to be isolated and directed toward the microphone.

Skyted is different than other headsets because it is designed to block out background noise. This means that when you are in a loud environment, such as a game center, or simply talking on the phone in public, your sound will be isolated and clear for the people you’re speaking with.

Other headsets may attempt to filter out environmental sounds, but they are limited in what they can do. With the Skyted headset, you can be sure that your sound is clear and crisp even in a loud environment.

Who is Skyted for?

One of the great strengths of Skyted is its versatility. Because the mask microphone is designed to work with Bluetooth, it can be used for a variety of purposes. The original purpose is to allow for public phone calls – limiting the background noise, but also preventing people around you from having to listen.

In the past few years, however, other types of public calls have become commonplace. in particular, Teams and Zoom calls have become a regular part of doing business, especially while traveling. But, working in public has become a normal situation, even for those not traveling.

In addition, gaming in public has become more common. Gaming centers, like our friends at STRYKE eSports in Tampa, are popping up in more places. Online gaming is enhanced by live chat, which is equally difficult in public. But, with the Skyted system, you can chat with other players without having to hide in a pod and without disrupting the gamers around you.

Another aspect of public speech where the Skyted can really be a benefit is streaming. Obviously, if you’re streaming a game in a game center, the benefits are clear. However, there’s a lot of In Real Life (IRL) streaming, where people stream their experiences with games outside of a studio. This applies to games like Pokémon GO, where you have to be in the wild to play. Once again, this device will help you isolate yourself from the people around you while streaming.

Summary

Skyted is planning to be made available through pre-orders starting in March 2023. To learn more about Skyted or to pre-order one for yourself, you can go to the company’s website.

GlobalM is upgrading the way broadcasters transmit video @ CES 2023



GlobalM Television Streaming SystemIf you are trying to broadcast an event around the globe with multiple unrelated endpoints, the infrastructure can be difficult and expensive. Traditionally, this has required satellites and hard links on both the transmitter and receiver’s side. This means that smaller production houses would be unable to take advantage of the ability to transmit to a global audience and also prevent them from being able to receive these feeds, as well. GlobalM has taken this concept and moved it off of satellites and onto the internet.

What is GlobalM?

GlobalM is a point-to-multipoint content distribution platform that removes the need for satellite connections. It does this by utilizing SRT, a low-latency streaming protocol originally developed by Haivision. This makes it easier and more cost-effective to provide live streams to multiple unrelated endpoints around the world, allowing even small production houses to reach their desired global audience.

GlobalM also allows for the scalability of your network, which means that you can use one source pod and scale it up to multiple destination pods. Each stream destination will have its own unique SRT stream URI that you can use to access the broadcasted content. Moreover, GlobalM works with any encoder or decoder that supports SRT, as well as with its own integrated mobile app for iOS and Android.

How does GlobalM work?

GlobalM works by taking a single source stream and encoding it into multiple SRT streams that are sent to each individual receiving device. This means that the broadcaster is only sending out one stream, but it is being received simultaneously by every receiver in the network. The main benefit of this approach is that GlobalM can deliver low-latency live video with an extremely high picture quality even over long distances due to its optimized network topology.

Overall, GlobalM provides a great solution for event broadcasting on a global scale. It allows production houses to easily reach their target audience without having to worry about expensive satellite connections or hard links – all while providing low latency, high-quality streaming at a fraction of the cost. With its scalable network and integrated mobile app, GlobalM makes it easy to broadcast any event around the world.

Who is GlobalM for?

GlobalM is for any organization or individual wanting to broadcast their event to a global audience. It is perfect for live-streaming events such as conferences, sports tournaments, concerts, religious ceremonies, and more. With GlobalM, you can easily reach viewers around the world without having to worry about the cost and complexity of satellite connections. Moreover, it allows your stream to be delivered with low latency and high quality even over long distances due to its optimized network topology. Whether you’re looking to reach a large international audience or just stream a small event locally, GlobalM has you covered.

Summary

In short, GlobalM provides a reliable, cost-effective, and easy-to-use platform for distributing content to multiple unrelated destinations around the globe. With it, you can reach a larger audience with ease. GlobalM is available for broadcasters to use now. To learn more or get a demo of the technology, head over to the company’s website.
