Is latency a concern in corporate broadcasts or marketing events? How is integrated telephony handled from an experience standpoint when there is latency?
Latency is really not a big concern. It runs 30 seconds plus / minus. It is not an issue because the audio and video are a single stream. The audio is played through the pc speakers or whatever the play-out device may be.
