Looking to record split-screen multi-user videos via your web camera? I am. While there are a number of video platforms that offer single web cam video recording, I recently set forth on a quest for find the ultimate online video product for recording multi-user web camera videos. I came across a site called Tjoon. Tjoon, a startup created by Suite75, offers an easy way to record split-screen multi-user videos via a web camera.
Tjoon is video community geared towards striving musicians. It is setup to enable users to create split screen musical jam sessions with up to four other musicians. The Tjoon community can then rate and review each session and the best jams bubble to the top. Users can record up to three minute jams that can then be shared and embedded into other sites. Check out the Tjoon jam video (below).
I quickly determined Tjoon is not the ideal solution for my particular situation since it only allows you to record up to three minutes of video but it does offer great utility as a music community. Tjoon is looking for people more interested in creating quick collaborative music clips but even a three minute music clip may be too short for a real "jam session" the way Dave Matthews Band, Phish and others like to play let it play out.
Obviously, Tjoon is not the solution I was looking for to help me in my particular situation but I think it does offer an interesting community for musicians which was worth highlighting. To meet my video needs, I currently have settled on BlogTV for recording my web cam video spots since it allows users to record up to 30 minutes of web cam video at one time. If you know of a better solution for recording split-screen multi-user video please let me know.
