One of our reasons for buying the tricaster was to set up webcasting of video events over the internet. Does anyone have knowledge of how this can be done? Can we use our own computer systems to set up a webserver or do we have to go through a commercial server? Thanks!

Hello MakakiloBob
How many viewers do you expect? Streaming with your server will allow more viewers at once if the server has a fast connection. If you plan on a large number of viewers then a streaming serves would be the way to go. When you use a serves provider you benefit from there fast connection, because you can send higher resolusion data and less waiting for the viewer.

My personel experience says that if you are streaming to less than 8 computers, you should be fine with a good broadband connections. Anything more than that, you will have to find server.
