This is the place where I hope to read your feedback and interact with you during the day as I do my best to live stream as much content as possible from Embedded World, through EmbeddedRelated.tv.
As I write this, it is Tuesday morning, day 1 one of Embedded World and I have a little bit the cold feet as I look at the schedule I have imposed on myself. This will be a crazy first day for sure and I cross my fingers that the technical side of things will go well.
Feel free to use this thread to report any problem (sound, image) so that I can try to fix them or at least let you know what the problem might be.
I expect the screens to flicker, a problem difficult to avoid. So I might focus my camera on the speakers and not on the slides on the screens. That is why I have asked the presenters to submit a pdf file of their slides so you can follow. When the file is available, the link will be in the description of the video (under the title).
Thanks for watching.
Disaster struck. One tripod broke during transport, backup tripod missing a piece. Need to run out to buy another tripod, will have to skip Jacob's presentation on FreeRTOS and maybe Colin's presentation on RTOS as well. Sorry!
Got a new tripod, won’t make it in time for Colin’s presentation.
Second live streaming didn't go very well. It was from a forum area on the show floor and my wireless microphone picked lots of interference so I had to switch to on-camera microphone with far less quality audio (lots of background noise). Also, I wasn't able to start the streaming on time, the wifi gave up on me (wifi really sucks here) at the very moment that the presentation started. I needed to switch quickly to a hotspot with my phone.
The next presentation (Future of FreeRTOS) is from the same stage. The sound guy will provide a feed from his console which should make for much better sound quality.
One problem I can see happening will be the crowd as I expect Richard's presentation to attract lots of people and it might prove difficult to keep people from walking/standing in front of the camera.
I knew there would be many challenges but I was hoping for better luck; so far, not so much.
The third live streaming session, The Future of FreeRTOS, went very well. This is encouraging for the upcoming sessions. But my live-streaming device is using LOTS of cellular data (fallback) because did I tell that the WIFI here sucks?
