VidOvation is a Video Communications Company
Larry Jordan: Jim Jachetta is the Founder and President of VidOvation. For over 20 years, Jim’s been designing, integrating and delivering video, fiber optic and data communications systems and recently they’ve expanded into wireless video with some new technology being used by the NHL. Hello, Jim, welcome.
Jim Jachetta: Hi, thanks for having me. Pleasure to be here.
Larry Jordan: We are delighted to have you with us and let’s start with a really easy question. First, tell us about what VidOvation is.
Jim Jachetta: VidOvation is a video communications company. We manufacture solutions for wireless, solutions for fiber optic transmission, for webcasting, we make encoders to stream video over your corporate network or through the internet, but in a nutshell we help our clients move video from Point A to Point B and our tagline is ‘Moving video forward’, so we’re staying up to date with the latest technologies such as what we did for the National Hockey League, using 60 gigahertz transmission for uncompressed wireless video.
Larry Jordan: Let’s just take a second. We understand that you guys are in the business of moving video, but you’re one of the founders of the company. Why did you decide to start the company? What made that so intriguing to you?
Jim Jachetta: Well, I guess I have my dad to blame for that. My dad had an entrepreneurial spirit. My dad was an engineer at ABC, CBS and his longest and final stint was at NBC, so he worked at 30 Rock for about 12 years before starting a company called MultiDyne and, as kids, my brother and I, we always worked for our dad so junior high we helped stuff circuit boards and build a lot of his audio visual equipment, so it’s in our DNA and my dad was a great problem solver and my brother and I have inherited that work ethic of doing the never been done before and solving our clients’ problems or helping with their business workflow.
Broadcasting live video to the internet, or webcasting, is already a powerful tool for houses of worship, but what will it mean in the future?
WORSHIP AVL ASIA Autumn 2013
WEBCASTING HAS COME A LONG way since its advent in the mid 1990s. Back then it was Apple who pioneered the technology, first broadcasting concerts online in 1995 and 1996, swiftly followed by the Grammy Awards. By August 1998 a wedding was broadcast over the internet for the first time and then the world slowly woke up to the potential of delivering video content via the world wide web. In the years since it has become a cornerstone of content delivery for everyone from major broadcasters to houses of worship seeking to spread the word far beyond the walls of a sanctuary.
But in that time the technology required to make webcasting a reality has developed enormously, dropping in price and becoming increasingly simple to use. Meanwhile, the way congregants watch content has changed. Once the only way to watch a webcast was on a desktop computer, now people can view vastly improved content on a smartphone or a tablet – a technology pioneered, ironically, by Apple.
So is webcasting still the future or has it become the present? The answer, it seems, is that its time has very much arrived.
‘Webcasting live to the web has never been easier than today,’ says Jim Jachetta, CEO of US-based video specialist VidOvation. ‘A few years ago expensive equipment from multiple vendors was required. Today highly cost effective appliances are available in a PC or Notebook platforms. That’s how VidOstream webcasting works Integrate a video production switcher, video effects, Chroma-key, virtual studio and software encoders for high definition Flash, Windows Media and MPEG4 (H.264). An example is the VidOstream family of webcasting appliances.’…
