One single socket quad-core Xeon with a PCIe x8 based 10Gbps ethernet NIC will be able to deliver that 2.2Gbps easily using either Windows or Linux without breaking a sweat. Of course that's if you have more than 1Gbps of bandwidth - you've limited yourself in this scenario by only having 1Gbps available so that's the wall you'll hit. The complex bit comes ...

Yes you can install the video hook driver on Vista, but you have to do it manually. To improve speed, right click on the UltraVNC icon on the taskbar and select properties. Then tick the following boxes: Poll Full Screen Poll Foreground Window Poll Window Under Cursor System HookDll If you are using the video hook driver, check if the Video Hook ...

Well, for cheap software, there's always Skype. Free is cheap, after all.

10TB of quality bandwidth costs a whole lot more than $10/month. Feel free to give a cheapo hosting company a go, but don't be surprised if you get kicked off or throttled after a few days.

Axis does some pretty good products. Camera is controlled by an internal webserver, on which you also follow the feed live. You can have some examples of this webserver by googling "Live view - / - AXIS" (with quotes) or "indexFrame.html axis" (without quotes).

For virtual machine, the physical video memory of your server is not used, so it's not a problem. And besides, on servers, you don't do graphic intensive stuff, you only display a linux console or a windows desktop with low graphic needs, unless you're planning to use your server to do 3D stuff, but in this case, the graphic cards is so important that you ...

Install the SPICE Guest Tools in your Windows guest to obtain (almost) all the various virtio drivers. (If it fails, install them from the virtio-win package instead.) Then shut down the VM and reconfigure it so that it uses a SPICE channel and QXL video. The corresponding XML is: <controller type='virtio-serial' index='0'> <alias ...

This is simpler than you think, a 9MB 30-second clip is 300KBps right, you have 15 of them - thus you need to be able to stream 4.5MBps, so roughly 45Mbps. A single 100Mbps link from the server to your classroom should be fine. The webserver, so long as it's not memory-starved, will easily manage to read the files once and cache them thus reducing any ...

That looks like a SUN 13W3 connector, you can get adaptors to allow you to connect them to a VGA monitor. Alternatively they are presumably using X11 so you can try something like XMing as a local server for your old machines.

10Tb = 10,485,760MB. Let's assume that you're going to do this over a period of a month, thats 341GB a day, 14GB an hour, 242MB a minute, or 4MB a second. This equates to a 32Mb connection, fully maxed, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Good luck getting that kind of service on a standard highly paid web host, let alone a $10/month host. They would kick you ...

Amazon just added a streaming media service today (Amazon Cloudfront). For the first 10 TB of data, they charge $.17 per GB, and even provide a calculator to estimate your monthly costs. 10TB of data would cost you a mere $1740.82 a month. Are you sure you're looking at 10TB a month? As Farseeker's calculations show, that is a LOOOOT of data to be pushing ...

Though it's not really a technical podcast, I like Windows Weekly for getting interesting information on upcoming developments on the Windows platform, and it's pretty entertaining IMHO. Have the balance out the dry stuff with some enjoyable shows too..

At the end, you'll find out that $1,000 for even a two-site video-conferencing solution is really tough to accomplish as you'll spend much $ on hardware/software costs, as well as man-hours to plan, deploy and maintain a feasible solution. Here are some options that might give you a better view of where things are on videoconferencing (per category) - If I ...

Normally, TFT displays have a fixed refresh rate of 60Hz. This problem might be more dependend on the (slow) speed of the integrated graphics device that is too slow to handle this resolution.

VLC does not support segmenting the output file. You can try to use directly ffmpeg as it supports output segmentation: ffmpeg -i rtsp://admin:admin@10.1.1.1:554/ch1-s1 -c copy -map 0 -f segment -segment_time 600 -segment_format mp4 "out%03d.mp4"

Let me get this straight. Inputs: Live video (cameras), display messages (advertising), and recorded video, adding titles Outputs: 4-8 video screens. Controlled across the LAN. Right. All of this is possible. There's hardware and software to do it. It's not cheap. There's no open-source / free software alternatives that do all of the things you ...

Microsoft Communications Server is exactly what you are looking for http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/communicationsserver/default.aspx It supports everything you mentioned. We are using it in an environment that is Windows and Macs and the Video chat works on both platforms. We also have offices in other locations and are able to use video chat over ...

Ok, let's work this out. You don't mention what codec or bit-rate you're going to use so I'm going to assume you pick something like H.264 at around 1.5Mbps (as that's what I do for SD content incidentally). So 1.5Mbps works out at around 187.5KBps, multiply this by 60 for 60 seconds in a minute, then by 4 for the average between a 3 and 5 minute clip ...

If your product has value then the people buying it will have to arrange within their organisation to have the necessary permissions. What this means for you is you should be clear about what the requirements are for you to deliver the service.

I do video on demand systems and there's no substitute for actually writing a bit of code that accurately portrays real playback characteristics. We wrote one we call 'VODBasher', it uses the exact transport mechanism we really use on the real platform and we run it from real locations all over the place. This helped us understand where we were going to see ...

I suppose Office Communications Server in version 2007 and later should work, as there seems to be a Mac client available that supports the things you want even if it doesn't support the awesome PBX integration. Perhaps the 2010 version of OCS will be better at this as well - as I've heard it being coined as a PBX killer ^^ OCS also has a web client that ...

We recently set up a webcam solution to look around our lobby. It's a Sony SNC-RZ25N. We mounted it on a pole (you can also mount it upside down on the ceiling) and we let people control the camera from our website. We chose it because: 18X optical zoom Limit camera usage to configured business hours Limit how long individuals can control the camera (we ...

Take a look at VLC. It is capable of streaming in different formats and of course also of playing - either streamed or locally present video data. We've set up something with similar requirements a while ago - VLC was fetching MPEG2 stream data from several network web cams connected over a rather narrow WAN link and re-streamed it to the internet (i.e. ...

See here, http://www.jaton.com/vga/graphics_card_detail.php?pid=199 I verified your card is a PCI card.
