After an afternoon of stage and live broadcast setup, everything was ready last night for the Live from the GOOC2010.
After an afternoon of stage and live broadcast setup, everything was ready last night for the Live from the GOOC2010. But this was hard and full of bounces. Instead of the 8 mega asymmetric connection promised, we are left with just 3M download and 0.3M upload. Everything seemed to indicate that Live could not occur -we even tried to connect ourself directly to the hotel’s server to ensure the flow … disappointingly low. Despite this limitation, we are able to provide Live properly (with image AND sound) without too many stutters.
