Qik enters public beta, echoes iPhone plans
Qik today said its live video streaming service has now entered a public beta and will let anyone sign up. The service allows users of supporting mobile phones to broadcast content directly from a 3G or Wi-Fi link either to the Qik website or to new places added with the public launch, including an embeddable player for any page or a Facebook app built into a user’s profile. The new version also has lower lead times and has just 0.5 to three seconds’ lead time, allowing show hosts a near-live connection that isn’t always possible with other services.
The update also brings the ability to run self-serve pages for major live events as well as groups, which can limit videos only to certain private viewers rather than making all videos public.
