Breaks Down Walls

TORONTO, CN –, 2004 BAA nominee live video chat site, announced that it is expanding its roster of chat hostesses and adding studios to accommodate a full schedule.

The walls are being taken down between the adjoining loft space and LiveCamNetwork Studios to build new, fully equipped studios. Part of the reason for the investment, says president Mark Prince, is quality. "We want to improve the quality of the MBase by introducing what we consider to be quality chat hostesses," he said. "Right now, anyone and everyone can sign up with one of our sites and chat. But pretty soon we're going to be getting more selective. The only performers available on MBase will be those who do things right."

Doing things right means getting their chat hostesses to talk and respond with their chat room visitors without hiding their faces or turning off the sound. "Interactive video chat means just that. Chat, live, video and audio, see and hear," said Greg Jones, Media and Communications. "So basically these models who don't want to be involved in their work or show disrespect and contempt for the visitor to their chat room by ignoring him, not talking or showing a weird angle of her left shoulder and keyboard, we're not going to share into the MBase."

Many chat hostesses tend to log onto different chat systems in an effort to maximize their profits. "The result of this, of course, is your models will ignore one site for another" said Sidney Zombay of iSN News (, a site which specializes in news about the live video chat sector. "You can't divide your time like that."

According to technicians at both sites, video streaming at 2-4 frames per second on several different sites at once can slow down a stream even further. "Actually, it can basically freeze the video," said Chili Concarne of "And with a fast stream like ours [ streams out to users at 15 fps] that means we lose quality and speed. We look just like any other site out there."

"We just won't tolerate that low quality anymore," said Geena Gekko, of, adding "Firstly it makes us look bad, and secondly it drags us down to a lowest common denominator level."

Jones claims sites are striving to bring live video chat into its own. "We're basically fighting the general state of the art to try and market the actual state of the art," he says. "The technology is there. We just want models and webmasters to realize how good their stream can be."
