Detail Report Of The Video Streaming At MOSC2011:
Facilities/Infrastructure For Video Streaming In Bayview:
Although AMDI was not informed that there might be live video streaming will be done during the event. But people from AMDI was very cooperative. Since they have hired people to record down the talks, they are willing to let me take a look on the video recording equipments to see if these equipments can be connected to computer for doing video streaming or not at the morning when the event started.
But due to the Internet connection was just a little bit faster than my old 56kbps dial-up modem, I had give up on doing the streaming and did not do a full inspection on those equipment.
However, I did enter the tracks hall to see those video recording equipments for a while.
The camera which was used are JVC cameras(or izzit Panasonic? I also forget already), and I can see that the camera operators connected the cameras to the video recording device via a AV output to a USB cable.
This means, if we have good Internet connection, doing the video streaming with a good quality video is not a problem at all.
This kind of setup, are actually similar to the type of setup as the Wordcamp San Francisco 2010.
We are just one step closer to do the video streaming. But too bad, the most important part, the Internet, was too slow for me to do anything.
Well, hopefully I can do the video streaming next year.
