Depending on the resolution and frame rate of your video, GigE is
nowhere near fast enough a pipe for live video manipulation.  This is
certainly the case when dealing with broadcast video.

We're only working in Standard Definition PAL (see the datarates in my first
post). I have done DV capture tests before over the network and that worked
fine. We're already having three machines feeding from one server today and
that works fine too allthough it is a bit slow. We're mainly copying files
to local drives, but DVD creation happens straight from the server.
