cam-dump, stream-dump and transmit!

As you can see in the previous post, we’ve managed to make a first very improvised test and this fragment turned out particularly awesome! And while on one hand the quality is exactly what is possible to get through the tiny uplink that we have at the moment here, and that is, somewhat, exactly what […]

telematic telepresence

“Variations on the theme of videoconferencing, audio and visual connections between remote sites, are often referred to as telepresence in an art context. Related terms compete for bandwidth. Communicating a poetic sense of what is concealed has been referred to as teleabsence (Lozano-Hemmer 1997), and other projects are more appropriately designated as telerobotics, indicating action […]

As Robin Gareus writes via lau-list: > Panning and […]

friday progress

Solved mysteries of streaming skipping chunks. Seems like the culprit could be in the upload bandwidth. If it’s too small (and it needs alot of space for overhead!), then chunks start to happen. When I lowered quality and resolution to 160×128 no cuts were appearing in the stream. Not sure what it means when we […]

first day of transmittance#1

Two days ago I arrived to Pula with a car full of technical equipment — video computers, workstations, loads of cables, mini-fm transmitters, midi controllers, audio interfaces, even a synth and a guitar — unloaded it at Rojc and set most of it up. The internet was already connected and needing a small change today […]
