I just hope, I didn’t promise too much…
Since I’ve never before tried anything like streaming an event, I had this stream of second and third thoughts going through my head: Will the webcam make good pictures? Will the stream be stable? Will the light in the movie-theatre be sufficient? Will the sound be good? Will the content be interesting? Will anybody be watching? Will… will… willl… – will it work at all?
But as a very smart person once said, you can’t dissolve your fears within your thinking – only within reality. So I’m thinking, why not just give it a try…
On location, I’ll be getting a lot of help from Heiko, an employee of Eiszeit-Kino, the movie theatre that hosts our event. He’ll set up a WLAN connection for us at 6000/600 kbit/s (downstream/upstream), which should be sufficient for standard definition video.
For those of you who are tuning in from all over the world, there will be a twitter chat (#aywrEU). We’ll project the twitter-stream onto the theatre screen during the entire event, so I think there will be a good discussion going.
