Remote Setup (RSI)

How to set up video and audio transmission, so interpreters can work remotely.

With LiveVoice interpreters can work remotely. Of course they need to see and hear what is going on on stage - seeing both the presenter as well as slides or other relevant material. So you will need to set up video and audio transmission, which is very simple.

All you need is:

  • Camera
  • Microphone / Audio Mixer
  • Computer

Set up:

  1. Connect the camera and the audio signal to the computer.
  2. Start LiveVoice in the web browser, using the speaker link you will get from the event organizer (LiveVoice admin)
  3. Click "Start" and allow the browser to use camera and audio input (with Firefox you can choose the right sources manually)

The computer just needs an internet connection (we recommend to use a LAN cable for stability reasons) and a web browser (we recommend Firefox, because there you can choose the video and audio input manually).

Using other video tools: Of course you can also decided to use another live video transmission tool, like Zoom or Teams to transmit the signal instead of the LiveVoice video transmission. The setup with camera and audio will still be the same. It is just important that the tool will transmit the signal in real time (not like YouTube or other streaming services that add about 20 seconds of delay for buffering; otherwise the interpreters would see and hear what is going on with a delay).

If you use LiveVoice for the video transmission, here is how to set up a video channel.

Note: It is crucial for successful interpreting that the interpreters will get a clear audio signal and see both the presenter and slides. Therefore make sure the audio signal comes from the same audio source (microphone) which is used for the audience on site to hear, and do not use the internal microphone of the laptop.
