We will be doing our first live webcast later this month but are having a hard time finding affordable companies to handle the streaming and archiving. Most of the events we will be doing require less than 50 hits. Any recommendations would be most appreciated.

We use www.audiovideoweb.com .

IT guy handles prices so ? there, but I know they are solid and provide very good tech help.

This is a provider that we will be using with a Tricaster" on 9/11/2005 for "Building Freedom Day" (Habitat for Humanity). They have been very helpful.

I was very happy with audiovideoweb.com
For a live streaming project that was very intimidating because of our national audience, it almost seemed too easy. I did subscribe in advance of the event and do tests, but it all went off without a hitch.
Just make sure you have enough upstream bandwidth (500k in our case) to send your stream to them.
We did not stream directly from the VT3 because it was not worth the risk of losing the live show or trying to troubleshoot the Windows Media Encoder on the same system if something went wrong.

The one thing I wish they could do was archive my show as I was uploading the live stream so that somebody could watch the archived version immediately after the event was over. Instead, I had to upload the archived file from our sytem afterwards which certainly delayed its availability.

Thanks for the input everyone. After some research we decided to go with audiovideoweb.com . After many hours with our IT guy on the phone with tech support, we were able to get a decent stream. Since then we have done two more tests with no problems. Their tech support is awesome and you can't beat the price.
