===Overview===
 +
 
 +
SoundReach is a voice system owned and managed by Treet TV.  It is useful in situations where:
 +
* Show participants cannot use in-world voice or Skype.
 +
* High-profile guests are involved and a telephone is the most reliable and simple medium.
 +
* Phone conferences are directed inworld directly via a Shoutcast radio stream.
 +
 
 +
To use SoundReach:
 +
* Determine the closest access number to your location from the table at the bottom of this page.  ''Note that there is a limit of two callers per inbound number, though there is no limit to the number of participants in a single room''.
 +
* Get a room allocation from Treet.TV.  If you need one, contact info@treet.tv.  A room number will be allocated and a passcode will be sent to you via email.
 +
* Have participants dial-in.  The voice prompts will guide them.
 +
 
 +
===Listening directly inworld===
 +
 
 +
If the room number allocated to you starts with a 4 (such as 497), then there is an in-world stream which is automatically allocated for you to use.  This does not affect our studio and we do not have to manage this stream, it is automatic.  The URL for the stream will be:
 +
 
 +
<pre>
 +
http://hub-us-2.soundreach.net:8811/room_4XX.mp3
 +
</pre>
 +
 
 +
You will need to specify the room number in the URL where "4XX" appears.
 +
 
 +
There is approximately a ''20 second delay'' before the audio will be heard on the stream.  There is also voice processing software which manages volume levels and enhances telephone call audio quality to assure the best inworld experience.
 +
 
 +
===Tips for a Better Experience===
 +
 
 +
Managing inworld audio events is always challenging, regardless of what technology you use.  Here are some tips specifically for events managed using SoundReach:
 +
 
 +
* ''Use a Landline!'', or the best possible telephone connection you can.  Avoid using SkypeOut and if you use a cell phone, be sure to test the reception in the area you will be using during the event.
 +
* ''Do not listen to audio on your machine''.  Because of the delay, it can be disorienting.
 +
* ''Remember the 20-30 second delay'' when coordinating slides.  Change slides so that your ''audience'' will see them at the right time, which means you generally need to flip slides about 20 seconds before you start talking about them.  A good suggestion is to have a separate person listening only inworld and changing the slides for you, that way you don't need to consider the delay when you are speaking.
 +
 
 +
Of course, technologies like inworld-voice and Skype can provide immediate interactive sound experiences.  Consider those first, and use SoundReach only when those technologies don't do the trick for you.
