Hi guys.

We’re introducing a new funky tool for communication on Pricescope. (see RockyTalky forum at the top).

Browse the tabs on the yellow strip to see who is alive and/or web-casting right now. You can join in by clicking the picture and following directions.
  1. Yellow tabbed strip at the top shows who's alive and who else has access to the system.
  2. There are three modes:
    1. one-to-many (seminars, Q&A, presentations) - everybody can enter
    2. one-to-one (private session) - only one visitor allowed
    3. off-line/unavailable/with a customer - you can still email a request about appointment
  3. Green icon at the tab indicates who's alive and available.
  4. by clicking on the control you stop it from rotation.
  5. clicking on a picture/video box, launching the main program which depending on the status will ask you
    1. to log-in or enter in silent mode
    2. to ask a question and request an appointment
    3. to email a request about appointment
The system is currently built so there is one presenter who's in charge of presentation (one-to-one or one-to-many). The presenter shows video and has an option to use audio.
Visitors cannot use the audio at the moment. We just thought that it can make it more cumbersome. Especially when there is no headset available or connection is not fast enough.
Visitors can type or use a phone which is much better especially when using one-to-one sessions and vendor offer a toll free number.

* One-to-many mode: visitors can only watch/hear and type. Presenter can show pictures and draw on whiteboard
* One-to-one mode: visitors can also draw on whiteboard and share/upload pictures to whiteboard
When inside the room, presenter can use video/audio, text messaging, whiteboard with images, gallery (if available)

Video: presenters can select different video size and also different cameras (if available) to show themselves, jewelry, diamonds, gemstones or anything else (workshops, stores, etc).
Video combining with the whiteboard can be used to draw above the video picture.

Whiteboard can be used for drawings on a blank page as well as on a picture (uploaded by either presenter or a visitor or selected from a gallery).

Text is just IM obviously :)

OK for now. please post your questions

so why don't you come in


ok a bit of technical stuff. you need to have Flash 9 to run it so when you're asked for an upgrade, please do it, it takes less than a minute

Please use text messaging to talk to him (you should be logged in to be able to do that). Currently only presenters can talk

I think we''ll be in and around this evening. This is great fun, just improvising right now.

There will be some prepared presentations tomorrow.

Yes, congrats on the 7 years.

Leonid & Irina...I''m guessing this is the project you alluded to you were working many hours on overtime for?

As others have said...pretty cool.

Many thanks,

Just turned off my first webinar. Wife is cranky I was supposed to be home ten minutes ago, that is addicting technology.

Tomorrow at 4PM EST I will be giving a webinar on the ASET tool, a complete look at it, how it works and why it matters. John Quixote will be giving a webinar on the reflector technology and will look at what the different tools do. (Firescope, idealscope, H&A viewer, ASET and what are the strenths and weaknesses of each.)

For during the work day I will be making appointments with people to answer specific questions in one on one sessions, and I suspect that John and I will coordinate various webinars to share information with people about important areas of knowledge concerning the stones you all love so much. Paul Antwerp is going to be one of the presenters also. This will be a great tool for us to share knowledge with you, so you must start letting us know what questions you want answered.

Wink

P.S. I can sure tell you that today was a LOT of fun. I hoped the visitors enjoyed it as much as we did!

Wink you were amazing, i call you our Energizer Bunny from now on.- Irina

Ira, thank you, we were designing this tool for many things which were unavailable before, for example a vendor can show on his/her hand how flush a wedding band will sit with a particular e-ring. Opportunities are endless though.
