    Hi, I work in a situation where we are recording and broadcasting meetings over cable television through the local cable company.

    What would it take for this to also be broadcast over the internet?

    An apple solution too please(of course).

    THANKS!

    thank you for the reply.

    it looks like it might have the features i need under the 'Includes built-in web server with Java-based streaming video support'

    Has anyone ever tried this?

    Also, I'm really newb on this topic and need to start from scratch.

    We have 4 cameras that we mix behind the meetings, then out to a dvr for recording, then out to a cable television uplink.

    i think the output from the dvr is my best bet for the signal we want to broadcast.

    does anyone know the procedure from going out a dvr to webcasting?

    THANKS!!!!

    i setup two studios to do what you want. we had 4 video cameras on motorized mounts and 2 video other video feeds from a workstation and overhead projector. All the video feeds were piped in a box which you could select a feed. the video and audio where sent to a control room then the video was broadcast over a T1. OK, the video over T1 would be like you broadcasting via the cable channel. However, the important thing is the setup because you can split off the out going video and audio into a server for steaming over the internet. This is for ANALOG and I just noticed that you have a digital signal. oops. My bad, then you just a firewire cable, and firewire selector box.

    This will anser a lot your question.

    You will however need a dedicated server for hosting the streams though, which will probably mean it will be a PC. Check this page with Mac and PC solution for streaming video.
