We are building a streaming video for the North CA First Lego League tournamnet. Will blog the efforts, the choices made and hopefully the successful results (the tournament is in San Jose City College on 20 Jan,06.
Challenges: (I will write notes on each component/sub system in the configuration section)
Range – Trying to solve it by 2 X 400mW 802.11g cards at the AP and 200mX USB client cards! The AP is MIT roofnet Sorkis board with 128 MB.
The gym, where the main event is, might be a big Faraday cage ! Still need to do a site survey …
Video server – videoLAN on a Shuttle SN27P2 is one choice. We have two streams plus the score sheet. So need to aggregate them in some way. (TBD as on Dec 17,06)
