    Live broadcasting in primary school? How & Help!!

    Hi all,

    Hope I try and explain this as best I can...here goes..... :?:

    My headteacher has asked me to look into our Yr 6 making a live broadcast to all the pupils in the school via each classroom interactive promethean board. She has heard of another school doing this via their digital camcorder and software/ internet.

    I regularly use our camcorder and produce DVD's but I'm a complete novice about this request

    Can anybody help me out?

    Fab forum by the way!

    Many thanks

    Off the top of my head Quicktime Broadcaster comes to mind, but I doubt that a primary school would have the Apple hardware/software to do that.

    Although... It's a very simple application, you give it a source, it encodes the video and broadcast's it. Then you just open up a quicktime viewer on the client PC's and they view the stream.

    I'm sure there's an equally simple windows solution that someone can come up with though!

    If i remeber right I think Windows Multimedia Services / Media Encoder supports live media streams.

    Hang on......

    Yes you can. If you only need 5 connections to the broadcast then you can get away this just the encoder, anymore and you will need you use a server.
