when is it? (the earliest for one of the 5 rooms the video team is interested 

is there a room where can put in our things early on friday morning (so, say 
11 or 12 :) and which we then can use to hook devices together to test things?

aka a working room.

I'd much prefer encoding at ULB and then sending 5 1mbit streams to 
fluendo.com, instead of sending two 25mbit links over there where fluendo.com 
is hosting, which quite likely is in Spain.

I really doubt we have constant+uninterrupted 25mbit - and if we dont, the 
stream will break. Then I would rather not do streaming.

So, where do we get encoding servers?
