Streaming webcam proves unsuccessful

I just saw this pop up on the web and wanted to share it. I set this up at Towson University for the 2010 Student Government Association elections. I was streaming this live to our audience on The Towerlight website by using a small external webcam.

Here is the link to the Ustream video

As you can see neither the audio nor the video is that great. Seeing that it’s a live online stream, I think it’s ok to accept a less than perfect video but it would have been feasible to move the camera at a closer table so the viewer coul actually see the subject matter. The problem here was that we were very short on time when setting this up.

We had to work with what we had so we would be ready to go when the eent started up.
