Brainstorming FUDCon Fedora 11 External Audio Options

  • streaming audio or video
  • could someone at MIT Television help?
  • one central server for streaming and use laptops in individual sessions
  • potential problems
    1. enough bandwidth to get to fedora talk
    2. enough hardware
  • use IRC for feedback loop to livestream
  • what about targeting one or two rooms to pilot the live stream
    • do well in one room
  • would need to create a standard setup guide so it is easy
  • setup in advance, preferably the day before so time isn't wasted in individual sessions trying to get things to work

    1. Paul Frields will try to make contact with MIT TV
    2. Chris Tyler to send out email to various fedora lists soliciting help and hardware from people attending--clip on microphones or video cameras
