Are there any special Wi-Fi requirements?
How many people can connect to a broadcast via Wi-Fi?
Is it possible to use multiple Wi-Fi spots in order to avoid Wi-Fi overcrowding?
How many MB are used per hour, per user?
What if the Internet disconnects during the broadcast?
What Wifi network equipment does Interactio recommend?
To be on a safe side – approximately *120kbps per listener only for the Interactio app and *1 mbps for the Broadcasting computer. However, the application must be downloaded for the first time. Broadcasting software is around 100MB and mobile application is around 15MB per smartphone.
* Not including other applications like browsers, chatting and sharing applications that the listener might use.
Listeners can be as far away from the stage as the Wi-Fi connection will allow. They may go to the parking lot, drink coffee or walk around the venue while still listening to translation via wifi, or switching over to mobile data (3G/4G/LTE) that would allow them to listen to the stream in any location.
Wi-Fi requirements can be found here: (WiFirequirements.pdf)
The Interactio system can support up to 50000 listeners. However, the number of listeners supported also depends on local network capabilities.
Yes, you can use multiple Wi-Fi hotspots. However, they all have to be connected to the same network.
Internet usage (if streaming online is enabled):
Broadcaster software (streaming to Server): upload up to 100MB/h, download up to 4MB/h
Listener app (listening from Server): up to 60MB/h (per one smartphone)
Internet usage (if streaming is done only locally):
Broadcaster software : upload/download up to 4MB/h
Listener: upload/download up to 1MB/h (per one smartphone)
If attendees are already listening to the translation, they will still be able to hear the stream as long as they do not close the app.
If attendees are not already listening to the translation, then they will not be able to connect to the stream, because the initial connection requires Internet.
Listeners can use their 3G/4G/LTE mobile data for listening with our Wi-Fi.
