A NowMax interview is always a one-on-one session. One host + one guest. Both sides are recording their remote video call in Full HD quality.
No. Mainly during the interview phase, we want video callers to have their mobile devices in landscape mode, in accordance with main screen orientations (16:9, as on most computers and television sets).
You can watch this short video about the four valuable steps of choosing the right location for a remote interview. Consider:
You can use a smartphone stand or small tripod, but even household items like cooking pots, boxes or plastic containers can help. You can find some DIY solutions on our website.
It might seem strange, but using your LTE/4Q mobile data produces a more stable connection stream during video calls. However, your mobile data plan might be more expensive than your Wifi internet connection.
In order to process the amount of video footage (realtime video call + upload of HD video footage to the servers), you would transfer up to 1 Megabyte per second.
As a rule of thumb, you would require 1 Gigabyte of free space on your mobile device for a HD recording of approximately 30 minutes. NowMax temporarily stores the recorded footage before uploading it to the cloud.
Of course, the transmission of the HD video footage demands the biggest amount of data.
In order of size: HD video footage > realtime video footage > HD audio footage > realtime audio footage
