> Morning all, I just wanted to bring a little project I've been working

> Loughborough University is hosting this year's 'Real Varsity' rugby
> match between ourselves and Bath University and I was asked by our
> Director if we could cover the match, primarily for alumni and off-
> campus users.
> I've been working with our student TV station, LSUTV, for the last few
> months to get this going and with a little help from Unibox we're
> almost there. We'll have 3 cameras on the pitch, 2 in a studio, pre-
> recorded interviews, studio pundits, presenters and commentators.
> We've put a lot of work into this and I'm confident it's going to look
> brilliant.
> We'll be sending out two unicast Quicktime MPEG4 streams (768kb/s and
> 1.5Mb/s) for access from anywhere on the Internet and a single 3Mb/s
> 264 multicast stream for those of you who are multicast enabled. The
> multicast stream will be viewable in VLC and is also being carried on
> Inuk's Freewire IPTV service, channel 106.
> The multicast stream will be going out on udp://@
> and all programming will start at 15:30UTC
