Adtlantida.tv is a free radio-television system. Its network of web and smartphone apps allows you to broadcast and consult audiovisual material at any time from anywhere through any free device.
Adtlantida.tv is different form other services like Bambuser, Ustream or Vimeo in that it only uses free tools ((Icecast at Linux server, html5 media players, Android apps); it combines live streaming on demand in only one COMMUNITARY service; and it works with uncensored free contents and without advertising.
This way, you are not a media product sold to advertisers. The community self-manages with contributions that, once the development is completed, allow to pay annually the cost of a good streaming server ensuring the service stability (good upload and download bandwidth)
Apart from this,Adtlantida.tv will have a team commited to research and develop new apps for experimental needs.
Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign
Adtlantida.tv infrastructure is formed by:
icecasat streaming served conected with the ring of giss.tv servers.
Web interface: wordpress, HTML5
Android devices: live streaming, audio spy-apps.
Adtlantida.tv is dividided in several blokcs regarding its services:
1.live streaming web service
- multimedia library
- android live streaming server (with two webcams).
- Spy-app (records and broadcast live streaming with just a click)
At the same time, it is divided in other two blocks regarding their uses (the same user can have both roles)
- Users plus who broadcast information (live streaming from any device).
- Users who file the information (multimedia library- flux on a diferred basis).
In these other blocks, users are grouped by channels, identifying themselves with a colective, an individual user or any other kind of entity.
During the first year, the number of users will be limited to those who co-finance the project during the crowfunding stage, so the registration of new users will be closed to garantee the service and stablish a closed relationship with those people or collectives that help to set up the project.
On the second year, the service will be opened up to all the web users and the registration will be free.
Adtlantida.tv will enable an API that returns the contents in json so that they can be easily used in other apps (like bloggers or other CMS). At the same time, the CMS latest news could be included at the users' interfaces by RSS.
Adtlantida.tv will also implement a system of events that allows to develop a dynamic grill based on differents criteria of content relations (not exclusively randomly) in the main interface.
Why this is important
Infraestructure 100% free software that widens free creative production and its visibility, as well as a direct democratization of streaming: everybody can stream everywhere.
The core idea was born ad a project to develop new functions in streaming field, and also to reinforce and give visibility to independent cultural production labs (promoting net connection on rural areas) and to cooperatives, self-employment initiatives, precarious freelancers, etc.
Our idea of Adtlantida.tv as a local initiative from Galicia opened up to global context (such as the net and the nets we inhabit and promote), wishes to address to the creative community in a broader sense, to all citizens, with functionalities such as the audioleaks-spy-app as a tool of transparency and social protest, or the multistreaming between different devices.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaign
Reinforce free and community streaming tools as opposite to corporations and private software such as Ustream o Bambuser.
Research on streaming, development of apps and functionalities: streaming from Android with two webcams launched to the same mount point and the audio spy-app for Android that broadcasts with just a click, and reinforcement of free software alternatives. In the long run, we propose to set up live streaming in the web interface without using private technologies, simplifying the broadcast process for the final user.
Summon up critical mass devoted to cultural and artistic production that uses audiovisual as a main working tool, or uses audiovisual as a vehicle for the diffusion of projects or social protest.
Foster creativity and experimentation in a broad sense (not exclusively proffesional), including audioleaks and multistreaming as citizen tools for creative social protest.
P romote free licences among cultural and artistic producers and everybody interested in creative contents and social protest.
Collect users needs through the returns to include them in a fluent development.
Promote the project among national, European and global Commons nets, seeking for synergies, complementarities and advice. Right now, we are taking part in giss.tv ring server, hosting our server with marsupi rizome from self-managed servers (they already gave us a virtual machine for technical tests). This way, the economical section dedicated to infrastructure will be a mechanism of mutual solidarity with akin autonomous inititiates.
Raise financing for start working technical aspects, contributing to free community in all the stages of the production process (server machines, software and content licenses)
Additional information on the budget:
The total amount for a minimun co-finnancing is 6,500 € and the optimun is 8,900€. On a second stage, the optimun, the development will be focused on research and the development of the rest of movile apps and the promotion of the project. At this moment, there are three apps projected: one app analog to the web, on spy app and one app to live broadcasting from different devices. Only this last one is included in the minimun financing, that also includes the server's configuration and the development of the web service.
The estimation is based on the national minimun wage for 2013, based on 645,30 € (www.rtve.es/noticias/20121228/gobierno-fija-salario-minimo-interprofesional-para-2013-64530-euros-mensuales/593261.shtml)
The 10% of the total will be addressed to the management during the co-financing phase. The 8% for service provision to Goteo and an average of 2% for the economic transactions.
