VideoLAN as a broadcast system #media
I just finished writing an initial Statement of Work for a video uplink so the company I’ll be doing the work for will be able to include their LA office in the festivities organized by the Amsterdam office
Currently the thinking was using either a pure VideoLAN or a Dreambox for the broadcast – the Dreambox used VideoLAN to broadcast – and a simple VLC client with a beamer and speakers on the otherside.
The bandwidth requirements for VideoLAN are:
- 0.5 to 4 Mbit/s for a MPEG-4 stream
- 3 to 4 Mbit/s for an MPEG-2 stream read from a satellite card, a digital television card or a MPEG-2 encoding card
- 6 to 9 Mbit/s for a DVD
