  Description     : Telepresence software for live performances and

 Scenic is a free software suite for streaming audio, video and MIDI between
 live events. It was created at the Society for Arts and Technology (SAT) to
 give artists a powerful tool for telepresence in live arts contexts and
 new media installations.

 The streaming is done over RTP with the GStreamer multimedia framework.
 Users can also choose low-bandwidth or high-quality codecs, depending on
 what is available on their system. It offers up to as many audio channels
 as your audio device supports. Scenic consists in a desktop application
 and several command-line utilities:
  * scenic: Desktop application to stream audio, video and MIDI over RTP
  * milhouse: Streams audio and video over RTP
  * midistream: Streams MIDI notes and controls over RTP
  * dc-ctl: Controls connected DC IEEE 1394 cameras
  * firereset: Resets a IEEE 1394 bus to help in case of problems
  * jack-info: Prints informations about running JACK servers
