My ears perked up when Rooney – a friend and VO Pro – mentioned he had successfully completed a remote recording using an IP connection service I’d never heard of before.
“SessionLinkPro” he said. “Worked like a charm!”
Naturally, I was on the case. I knew enough about it to mention it during our WoVOChat on ISDN v. IP alternatives last week. I knew SessionLinkPro was yet another of the growing list of ISDN challengers based on internet protocols, and using a stable codec developed some years ago by Skype.
Following the trail to the SessionLinkPro website, I pinged the contact by email, and got an immediate response from the designer and founder of SLP: Tim Proegler (best English equivalent: pronounced Proogler).
Tim was amenable to conducting a video interview, and immediately suggested we do so using the video channel capability he was designing into the interface. We did, and the result is below. There was never a hitch in the audio or video signal in the ~13 minute interview. Very robust.
During our talk, you’ll find out:
- How Tim got the idea to develop SLP
- Some technical specs
- Pricing and subscription plans
- ISDN’s not-so-slow death in Europe
- Marketing plans for SLP
- Why the video component is so important
- How SLP compares to its competitors
SessionLinkPro uses a simple, intuitive interface. The audio/video quality is tops. Making the connection to the other party is easy…just send an invite by email with a link. I forgot to ask if a Chrome browser is necessary, but I believe it is. Please watch our interview below.
Kudos to you, Tim, for your entrepreneurship and for creating a fine, stable product for the marketplace.
