Q: Intranet video camera streaming

There's an upcoming event at a non-profit location, that they would like to stream live to two separate locations on the same campus. Here's what we're working with:

- HVX200 w/ firewire in to MacBook Pro
- Windows computers projecting into viewing locations
- campus-wide wifi (unknown speed)

So I need (probably) a cross-platform streaming solution. I THINK VLC only streams video files, not incoming firewire streams (fiddling with it currently, haven't found what might make the firewire bit happen)

Cheap is paramount here, don't need super-high-quality by any means... just sending a simple SD stream over intranet.

What are my options?

If I understand you, you'll be live into a Mac and then out to your server? Quicktime Broadcaster (freeware from Apple) might do what you want; if you are streaming into Windows, try Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 (also freeware, from Microsoft).

Re: Q: Intranet video camera streaming

There's been a slight change that makes this a ton easier... only streaming to one location.

Unless it fails hopelessly on the projector end, we're just going to do Facetime from the Macbook to an iPhone with a RCA breakout cable into a switcher to the projector.

I'll check into QT Broadcaster and MEE4 as well, just in case. Thanks
