Sorry for being OT, but after promising everyone some webcasting action,
not all of it worked.
The wedding webcast on Saturday wasn't the best. Our wireless link didn't
come up and after loosing time with a faulty video DA, we didn't have
enough time to find out why. Theres no T3G coverage in Tawa (or the whole
Tawa/Porirua valley) so there was nothing we could do. A 2 person crew can
only do so much. So we shot the wedding to disk....... Thats the first
time in about 5 years that we've failed to get the signal out.
In comparison, Sunday in AKL, was a dream. 2 hours to set up the van and 4
cameras. Jeff and ? (forgot his name) from NZ Wireless just turned up, ran
a long cable from their car to my van. Pings worked straight away - and I
had 15Mbps to APE. It all ran perfectly and we uploaded a 750MB file
afterwards, straight to the server. Nice and easy.
So sorry that this is a shameless plug for Chris and the team at NZ
Wireless, but it was a very short notice job, and they delivered the goods.
It shows the power of NZNOG as a group, when you can fire off an email
asking for help and get such a great response in 15 minutes. And they did a
brilliant job as well.
I was so pleased I had 2 beers that night (just to get on topic).
To make life easier, I guess I should start using ISPs who can deliver to
my van, rather than having to do that part myself as well as the production
side of things (and the encoding).
Next scheduled job is 7 Sept - it will be an opportunity for all
