Arg. I thought we would need a long power cable to the tower and somehow 
forgot about network...

why? and are you sure there is _no_ way^wbuilding or something similar ?

Oh! I thought you asked for permission to setup cables everywhere we need

If we put the encoding server somewhere else (then in the tower), we would 
have to stream raw dv, thats 25mbit _constantly_ (afaik). (Putting the 
encoding server in the tower would give the same problems, as we'll have 
talks elsewhere.)

Also note that this 54mbit is "marketing brutto" :-) The available bandwidth 
depends on a few things and some might change... (interference with other 
networks, esp. when they're in use, weather, etc)

That said, I also have not other option than wireless and setting up _one_ 
(out of then two) encoding servers in the tower. We'll talk about this in 
tonights video irc meeting.

Sure, if we stream live to the world (which we will also discuss tonite), we 
surely can stream to the building next door :) Still I rather would prefer 
bigger rooms as a solution, because watching on a projector is not the same.
