I'm delighted to report that Jonathan and I successfully recorded Blue Box #70 this morning. It was a bit surreal, actually. There I was at the Javits Center in a vacant room on conference WiFi and Jonathan's audio quality was outstanding! In fact, when I listened to the recording afterward his audio sounded far better than my audio that was recorded off of my local USB headset! Of course, in contrast to the stats I showed yesterday, here's how our call looked today:
0.0% packet loss on receiving Jonathan's signal! Very cool! And a 94ms round trip sure beats a 200-300ms round trip, eh?
To get this good quality on a conference WiFi really speaks to the efforts of the Interop NOC team to deliver this kind of network. Kudos to them!
For those curious, I recorded the show locally on my MacBook Pro using WireTap Studio from Ambrosia Software. Given that our recording levels were quite different, I'm probably going to need to run the recording through the Levelator in order to bring the levels in line.
It should be posted probably some time early tomorrow. I'm at Interop all day today and so the post-production will probably be done during my time out at JFK and flying home later today.
