    live stream a concert on LAN

    our music dept want to stream a concert they are putting on in the school hall to the projectors in the classrooms.

    Looking for suggestions on how to do this. What software would be needed, what hardware (will we need a special IP camera?)

    Cheers!

    I would look at vlc and multicast for that will be a few secs behind live, but all rooms should be in sync.

    Have a look at angry technicians blog for the multicast details.

    cheers, but what about the cameras? How do I go from a video camera onto the network?

    Apart from webcams build into laptops, I dont think we have an IP camera. Will we need to buy one or is there some sort of digibox interface box we can buy ?

    IP camera is the best way forward imo. Makes streaming easier.

    You could also use Windows Media Services on a Windows server Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Windows Media Services for Windows Server 2008 R2 - &#x202aWindows Media Services 2008 R2 Part 1 (HD)&#x202c‏ - YouTube

    There are versions avalible all the way back to 2003.

    You can then use something like Windows Media Encoder 9 or Expression Encoder depending on how new your system is to grab a live stream from an attached cammera and push it via the server. I think you can even do this without the server.


    I think there may be a way to grab a stream from certain cameras with VLC too so both could be decent and free solutions.

    I've done very similar to what Synack suggested. Windows Media Encoder 9 (on an XP computer) streaming audio and video from a Sony Handycam connected via firewire.

    As the forum software has garbled, chewed and hashed my post above to the point that I can't edit it, here is the link to the youtube bit:

    Failing the axis cam, I believe vlc will pick up a FireWire camera as a source.

    Just checked as I couldn't remember the axis cameras are only up to 15fps so the stream will be a little juddery, and there is no sound by default, so maybe not perfect for a music concert.

    I have used a CCTV camera and a comp video to USB adapter in the past to get a video signal into a pc.

    We use media services for broadcasting our Radiostation to the world - we will shortly be setting up Webcams etc in there new studio to stream that aswell!

    can't fault media services - something which tends to just work!

    I wuld just use the video output on a normal camcorder and a USB video capture device together with VLC players multicast ability. You'll get a better quality video than using an IP camera, and much better quality sound. Just make sure you turn off any 'sleep' mode on the camera and any on screen display and it'll do the job nicely - I've done this many times in the past.

    Mike.

    Can anyone suggest a decent quality one of these? Will they also do audio?
