The new version of Skype will contain both studio-grade video and audio, making it suitable for broadcasters.
Microsoft has just unveiled the Skype TX which entails a newer version of the VoIP service maneuvered towards broadcasters. The Skype TX will use technology that has been developed by Cat and Mouse which is the latest MSFT acquisition. This will allow better quality video and audio output which can be beneficially acquired by media professionals.
Alongside this the Skype TX will also support HD-SDI interface which appears to be the broadcast standard. Skype TX can take up multiple calls at the same time by way of a single interface and can get rid of any distractions in the form of advertisements and notifications.
In lieu of the frequency with which radio stations both large and small depend on Skype to chat with guests, the TX has a large prospective audience. Microsoft has not released details regarding the price or the time of launch but it’s expected that its specifications will be known soon enough.
