We made our way over to The Belmont, uStream.TV’s headquarters for SXSW. Eager to see just how uStream put together a high-quality live streamcast, I captured the configuration (somewhat) in the video below.
There’s an s-Video out from the Panasonic HD camera to the broadcast mixer and an audio out from the camera to the mixer. The mixer is then fed into a computer and then sent over the web. I did not see what sort of bandwidth was in use. The Belmont offers WiFi, but there’s little chance uStream was using WiFi for this sort of exercise.
