Setting up XRAI Stream

Personalized subtitles for diverse audiences with real-time transcription and translation. Perfect for any event, any size, anywhere.

Before you proceed:

To purchase a Streaming service for your venue, please reach out to us at enterprise@xrai.glass and our team will provide access to the XRAI Stream software. 

Step One: Setting up XRAI Stream

We've made it as simple as possible to connect XRAI Stream to your AV system in order to get the most accurate subtitles. 

You will need (per stream/room):

  • A reliable internet connection
  • A smart device (tablet or smartphone) with XRAI Stream installed on it, which will be used for the live subtitles during the event.
  • An USB-C hub to allow you to connect multiple devices to your tablet.

Connect the devices together as shown below:

  1. In the upper right corner in the XRAI Stream app, click on the profile icon.
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Tap the version number 10 times to enable developer settings.
  4. Scroll down to Multicast server mode and ensure this is set to Multicast 
  5. Set the Multicast server name to what you would like the feed to show up as in the app
  6. Use the Multicast server splash image to customize the splash screen that users see when they connect to the stream. Be sure the URL is available over the internet.

Step Three: Streaming your event

To stream your event is no different to how you would normally use the app. Simply select the correct settings as usual, and hit the microphone to begin subtitles.

The only difference with XRAI Stream is that any XRAI Glass apps connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the XRAI Stream Server will get a pop-up inviting them to join the Stream. When they click on it, the stream will be set as the Selected audio source:

And relax. Your event is now being streamed in 78 different languages, all by magic.
