It's a drag to get and install all that video and internet software for
making a say "realvideo" stream of a live event. Instead

||Bandwidth is the difficult factor, since the event promoter would need to assure bandwidth capable of doing the streaming.
||Using a G4 running MacOSX Server and Quicktime Streaming Server connected via Airport to an iBook with a camera running Sorenson Broadcaster, one of the companies at a recent Macworld streamed live wireless footage.
||I imagine it would only cost about $10k to put a setup together and one could charge companies about $3-4k per day (excluding bandwidth) to stream.
||I agree this is a good idea, but ... the hard part is selling it to budget conscious business people. The question is, How does streaming audio and video effect the Bottom Line (profit)
