Certainly didn't meant to imply that it can't work. To repeat, I've conducted a zillion remote meetings using streaming video/audio (I don't mean 1,000 billion ... I just mean I've conducted remote meetings with IP videoconferencing more times than I could count). I don't mean remote meetings using streaming video /or/ audio. I mean I've done a zillion remote meetings using streaming video /and/ audio. What you've described (remote audio accompanied by live graphics) is easier, but it also lacks the sense of face-to-face. Congressional testimony typically provides the invitees to each present briefly, but then follows with face-to-face Q&A with the present panel members (which I'd assert the people not physically present lose out on to a great degree).
Why do I think it's not appropriate? From my experience, live video /and/ audio requires more BW than audio alone (all you need for audio is a phone), and depends upon understanding the end-to-end path. One often has a handle on the channel from one side well in advance, but very little time to assess or adapt for what you find on the end where you're delivering to (where the meeting is being conducted). Setup time is also an issue. When you're given only 5 minutes the last thing you want is a hiccup and risk "nuttin". I'm just giving my opinion based on my background and experience. If your delivery is important, you don't risk it on accomplishing a successful IP videoconference, although it certainly can be done. I still think someone from wispa could collaborate with P15 on the presentation material and satisfy both groups (and that seems to me to be the most practical solution).

Not appropriate for an FCC presentation. mks: I beg to differ. When I was there speaking at the WISP Showcase they had others "attend" via voice links. Someone locally ran the slides and the remote guys just told them when to click to the next one. The event was also streamed live via the FCC's web site. -- WISPA Wireless List: firstname.lastname@example.org Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives: http://lists.wispa.org/pipermail/wireless/ -- WISPA Wireless List: email@example.com Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives: http://lists.wispa.org/pipermail/wireless/
