The Spark Series, Part 4
Going Live 1.0
by Michael Sean Wright
Marc Ostrick and I continue our adventure into emerging tech with a return trip to Vegas for the 2010 International Consumer Electronic Show. We're on a mission to take the lessons learned from our previous outings at Blog World Expo, The Twitter Conference, and The TWiT Cottage and apply them to actually building a live streaming HD studio with Robert Scoble.
Robert, Marc and I have been monitoring the increasing approach to the horizon point of ubiquitous media delivery systems. It won't be long until the line between web and traditional media is greatly blurred. We will soon be watching web content in HD through an abundance of low cost options like Boxee. CES is a complete sensory overscan, but we remained focused in our search for the products and tech that would be the right fit for a live HD streaming studio, built on a budget.
Here's a bit of what we saw from the floor of CES.
We are still considering our equipment options, but we're much closer to a decision after seeing the new lines from Canon, Sony, Blue & Skype enabled LG TVs. Stay tuned for the build of Scoble's studio, coming soon.
