VIRDITION’s audition management system integrates a live video feature for Industry Pros to enable online interaction with Talent as well as face-to-face interaction between other Talent and Industry Pros as well.
The LiveTime™ Group Live Audition Rooms allow multiple users in the each audition room. You can schedule an audition to invite your group, to join you at a specified time in a live online audition. Your group can consist of people made up of talent, industry pros, and anyone else whom you invite with a secure link, such as an invited client or producer.
The Impromp2™ One-on-One Live Audition room allows no more than 2 users to have a real-time live audition/rehearsal.
There are multiple ways to schedule a Live Audition Room as well as Network in the video Audition and Rehearsal rooms. Here are the basics:
There are two types of Live interactions:
Scheduled - Coordinated through Calendar Scheduling.

LiveTime™ Items List
The following items are shown on the screen, and will have a brief description.
Screens - These are the live video screens that stream from the individual user (Talent and IPro alike). The size and locations for each screen is customizable for each session.
People List - This is where you see all the people in the room by their name with an indicator of their connection status. You can click on the name choose which screen you want their video feed to go and/or send them live buzzes & private messages as well as change your status.
Lobby - This is the group text window that allows the group chat through text as well as group messages from the system (ie, when someone leaves the room, is unavailable).
Rooms - This is the list of rooms that are separated into each tab and category. The tabs are Audition, Rehearsal, and Network--each are optimized for particular uses for the task that they are labeled by. In the network tab, there are multiple categories that are broken down by talent categories to allow easy networking by abilities.
Lobby Files - These are for files to be uploaded and shared in the room. Those files can be documents, videos, pictures, or video files which only stay in that room until deleted or everybody leaves the room. That maintains the confidentiality of the material shared.
