How many people can I stream to directly by providing the mms number? When I hit a critical number what happens? Do they experience streaming bog down? Or does the tricaster experience a bogging down? Or both?

Has anyone streamed extensively with the tricaster yet? What type of connection did you have and what were the results?

I think in one document it stated up to 10 different people/computer if you use the Tricaster for both encoding and used as a streaming server.
It all depends on your Tricaster Configuration RAM/Processor. But you cannot change this with the TriCaster.

If you have an event where you think many people will be watching, or your streaming is regular, it is better to rent space (web hosting company with streaming services). It may not be cheap but it is reliable.

Ahmed's correct. The theoretical limit is 10 people, but if you're planning on something like 300k streams for quality, the more practical limit would be 3 or 4 people at once.
