The rapid development of technology has brought many conveniences to our lives, some of the most important of which is the ability to stay in touch with people wherever we are and to create quality content without high-grade equipment.
Although we live in a world where entire movies can be edited on a smartphone and communication with people from anywhere on the planet can be easily initiated, there are still a lot of problems that pop up in the process.
Just a drop in Internet speed can seriously affect the quality of an online class, a job interview, a group meeting, or a podcast recording. This can lead to both poor real-time communication and the need to spend additional time and effort on redoing the recording.
The desire to prevent these problems motivated us to create our own solution: the virtual recording studio Waveroom.
Why we launched this project
Our company operates in several countries and we know the importance of clear and timely communication over long distances, within the team and with clients alike. Over the years we’ve tried many remote calling and recording tools but haven’t found a product that meets all our needs.
So we decided to create a service that combines ease of use, access on all platforms, and the highest quality of video and audio paired with the ability to record regardless of the speed and stability of the Internet connection.
After several months of diligent work on the service and its active use within the company, we’re now ready to share it with you!
What we offer
Waveroom is designed for easy and convenient remote recording of video conferences, webinars, interviews, lessons, customer testimonials, internal communications and much more.
Key features of the service include:
🔴Top-notch quality. Video is recorded in up to 1080p resolution (4K is going to be supported next) with clean uncompressed audio. Video and audio files are saved to the server during the recording and can be downloaded after the session.
🔴Secure local recording. Issues with the Internet don’t damage the quality. Even if the connection is completely lost during the session, video and audio continue to be recorded.
🔴Single and group recording. Video/audio can be recorded by one person (for a podcast, tutorial, etc.), as well as by a group of people. A host can gather 4 guests through an invite link. The maximum participant capacity will be expanded in the future.
🔴Convenience and ease of use. The service is available via browser, so it’s accessible for users of all operating systems, including Windows, macOS and Linux. The UI is minimalistic and easy to navigate.
