If the planned technology works we will be broadcasting Live TV over the internet from the UK National Race Meeting at Henstridge this weekend, starting around 1300 on saturday.
Click on www.live.raceresults.info (http://www.live.raceresults.info) or click on 'About' at the top of this page, then 'Live'

For the first time racers and supporters at Henstridge should be able to watch Live broadcasts, Race replays and get points & laptimes during the weekend. Bring along your wifi laptop and you hopefully will be able to access all this stuff from our onsite network, without needing internet access. It's all part of the technology being developed for the Worlds in August.

Part-time camera operators are required.
Come and record a couple of races.
We need to have a bank of people who can drop in to film.

Thanks

Greetings from the Media Centre at a very wet Henstridge Airfield. We've got quite a lot of kit to set up yet but we're aiming to be on air by 1300 today - when hopefully the rain will have eased.
Live coverage on www.live.raceresults.info (http://www.live.raceresults.info) from 1300.

Hello Keith,

I'm watching as well from the Birmingham Metropole Hotel (as well as managing the IT/Streaming on the British Contact Lens Associations yearly conference!)

We could do with some contact lenses here - with the rain lashing down and the media centre steaming up. Hows the buffering? I'm currently uploading at 500kbits

Not buffering for me at all here, might be worth taking auto focus off camera to stop it focusing on the rain on the windows!

my connection is crap, jumping around from about 40 kbps then flies up to 800kbps

So sound seems fine, but picture freezes and then jumps to live again. How can I fix it?

Might be because I'm sending at 500kbits. I'll drop it down to 300 now and tell me if that fixes it. Were on paddock open

Keith

Tamsin
30-May-10, 11:16 AM
I am! It freezes a little but very good!

atters
30-May-10, 11:17 AM
OK, Just wanted to wait for the race to finish.

Sound is great.

Picture freezes on camera two from time to time, also indicated on bottom corner of scream, this makes me think that it is the camera operator.

Picture in general is good but freezes from time to time, looks like a bunch of stills being run through.

Buffering every 20 sec;s or so.

My connection is between 300 and 400 kbps

Hope this helps.

Keith Oakley
30-May-10, 12:29 PM
We're now pushing out the lapchart at the bottom of the page. If you're not getting it try changing your IE settings so it doesn't use the cached (saved) copy. See the help page for more.
Can someone report back if they are getting the lap chart plse
Keith

Tamsin

Any chance of Camera 4 being refocused? It will be a fantastic shot if we could see it clearly - thank you :D

Ian wants Barry to say hello to him! :rolleyes:

Keith Oakley
30-May-10, 02:38 PM
The 'good' camera for cam4 has been killed so we've got the last spare cam which is lo quality - best we can do. Is everyone seeing the lapcharts on the bottom of the page ok?

Thats all for sunday folks. Racing starts tomorrow at 1130am.
This course is taking its toll of craft bottoms & skirts so craft nos are well down.

Connection kept on dieing.

Racing has been abandoned for today (monday) because the course has deteriorated too much. Essientially too much of the course is now bare soil and craft are suffering too much hull and skirt damage.
