Virtual Glass is a "zero configuration" networking plug-in for RTAS, AU and VST host applications that enables peer-to-peer audio and video streaming, discrete talkback, and Rewire sync over the Internet in real-time.
In a commercial studio the engineer operates the equipment in a control room while the musicians, separated by a glass partition, perform their parts. Virtual Glass uses the Internet as the high-tech equivalent to the glass partition between engineer and musician. Its 3D design depicts a recording console and a "virtual glass" partition that functions as a video screen, so even the least tech-savvy user feels right at home using the plug-in for real time sessions.
To use Virtual Glass, you need a recording program, a high-speed Internet connection, a Web camera, and an eSession user account. Installation is simple, and there's no copy protection. The software works with any Mac-compatible Built-in, USB or FireWire camera for real-time video; the camera mic enables voice communication with the talent.
You can connect to other users and stream audio in real time from your RTAS, AU or VST host application to any other RTAS, AU or VST host over the Internet. You can use any Core Audio input device as a discrete talkback channel (for example web cam mic or your Mac's built-in mic). You can sync the connected machines via Rewire sync. This enables everyone around the world to collaborate in real time.
