Business Meeting Essay

1036 words - 4 pages

I am combining notes and info from the meeting with Joe/Tom and the other meeting that we had with Brad.

Outstanding Issues:
Audio Quality drops
This was brought up first by both Joe and later by Brad. Volume control has become a persistent problem since the introduction of AGC. This needs to be investigated if there is a problem with the distance model of OpenAL with AGC or some other factor that is causing them not to play nicely together.
Regions/Channels problems: This has been going on all week between Joe and Vivox. It seems that with the recent update that channels in regions are not coalescing properly and are causing channel drops. This is being worked on and did not come up in the meeting on Tuesday but since then it has escalated.

Viewer 2.1 and future plans:
Viewer 2.1 is being called the “Social Update”
Voice Fonts are confirmed and committed to but deployment is still in question:
-Deployment options
Linden: Free for Premium users to follow the model established by new Homes. Homes have been a success for Linden, stopping the loss of Premium subscriptions(stable and now rising at 80k) with almost 20k built and deployed. They have also been a huge boon for the economy since now people need to outfit their homes with furniture, artwork and whatever.
Free for Premium and then “a la carte” for the general population via the HUD. This is how we could roll out the feature to the general pop and also deliver new fonts to the Premium members
Speaker Phone is not committed to but being evaluated as a possibility. The avenue to deliver this could still be our HUD since Linden has not corrected their internal issues with billing. If we provided this feature via the HUD we could charge by L$ and follow the tradition SL vendor model. If Linden does figure a way to bill via the Viewer then I there is a possibility this feature will enter into 2.1 but I find it highly unlikely.
Future Plans:
Future Features:
Encryption(Joe): Technology background work already done and needs to be deployed. Brad did not see this as a feature that would have priority since it does not fit into their new push to social networking over business.
Echo Cancellation (Joe): High numbers of Linden’s users are not on headsets. SL Voice is compared to Skype and we need to match their feature set.
Voicemail (Brad): Work already done and demoed and Brad would like to see it delivered to SL users. Is not on the current list for Viewer 2.1 but might be feature that we could roll out via the HUD.
Web Interface:
Linden will be building a web interface(SL lite)to build Avatars and get new users introduced to the world. A chat interface in which they could communicate to people already in SL or to others building/creating avatars would be ideal. This is farther out and might be a nice fit for our flash project. They are looking at HTML5 and...
