Thanks to Tim Owen’s Streaming for Pennies post that has been powering DTLT Today’s live stream, I now have an internet broadcast channel of my own without ads, for pennies. Daniel Phelps and I are really excited about the possibilities (above is an illustration of how easily we are entertained). We’re going to start by using the stream to broadcast York College’s graduation on Friday (bit of a snooze cast, but we’ll see). But I’m particularly interested in the CUNY Academic Commons using the stream allowing members to share presentations, for teaching, and for exploring anything else they can imagine as a live broadcast. I know that we’ll be able to get CUNY DHI and Blogs@Baruch involved right away.
Timmmmyboy you should check out an iOS app Daniel Phelps discovered, Livu, which allows you to stream directly to a Wowza server from your phone. Right now it only allows you to tap into the videocamera on the phone, but there are plans for the app to stream previously recorded audio and video. Kind of like a Wirecast on your phone. How crazy is that!
