First professional Flix 8 Live Encoder webcast using On2’s Flix Encoder tonight at Fabchannel

with 2 comments

Although Stefan beat us last week in doing the first live webcast using the new Flix 8 Live Encoder, i’m happy to announce we’re doing a professional webcast using ON2’s new Flix Live encoder application tonight at 21:00 GMT+1. We’re streaming live from the infamous Melkweg concert hall here in Amsterdam where Pennywise will be performing.

Some technical details: we’re streaming with 500 kbps bitrate, so you need a fast connection ( if you want to test your bandwidth to our FMS servers, you can run the test at our little diagnose application, it will show your connection speed and will report if it’s sufficient ). We’ve been testing the live encoder application for the past 5 days and it’s pretty stable. We did notice it’s a bit picky when it comes to capture card devices and you may need to update your drivers for your operating system of choice. Our encoding machines and our FMS2 Edge/Origin setup are running Windows 2003 and being connected through a gigabit uplink, we can handle up to 2000 simultaneous viewers. We will also run a Windows Media stream for our viewers who for some reason are unable or having troubles viewing the stream our have insufficient bandwidth ( you can choose between a 56k WindowsMedia stream and a 500k WindowsMedia stream ).

We have 2 venues ( Paradiso and the Melkweg ) and over the weeks we will test our studio setup, camera’s and encoders to improve the quality and experience. We’re doing webcastings almost every week, so make sure to check Fabchannel.com for the announcements.
