A Day of Streaming Live Video
After sitting idle for
three weeks waiting for a new transmission for my production van, I was finally able to hit the roads around Nashville
and test out the coverage area. Or that was the plan.
9:49 pm cdt
stop of the day was the famous Natchez Trace bridge in Williamson County. No 4G signal there! So i packed
up and headed to the Williamson County government building. I wanted to test out the shot in case anyone wanted
a live shot there for the upcoming August (local) and November national elections.
Software glitches and 97 degree weather do not mix. After about a half hour of trying to get the
live stream up and running, my energy ran out and I packed things up.
Undaunted, I regrouped after lunch and headed out to the Williamson County Ag. center. This is my "go
to" place where no one will bother me as I try to fix the problems of the morning. Fortunately, the live stream gremlins
had gone away and i was able to stream at 500Kbps with full audio.
Here's the Ustream recorded link...http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nashville-web-video-production-services
also uploaded the video to YouTube, but the quality is alot lower. Here's the link
Hope to head out again tomorrow.
