March 14,1997 Cyber Cast of Arthur C. Clarke Live from Sri Lanka to UIUC near Chicago.
Using the Livecam Video Server we streamed Live video from Chicago, USA (41°53' N, 87°40' W) and
Colombo, Sri Lanka (6°55' N, 79°52' E) is approximately 14442 kilometers, (8975 miles). The Vosaic developers at UIUC turned down the task feeling there MPEG Streaming technology would not work. Using the SPAC Streaming Protocol we were able to over come long latencies and high loss to transmit high quality video that could be projected on a huge 70mm theater screen.
The System work so well we were invited to do a live event with Sir Arthur C. Clarke "A Day on Europa" May 21, 1998 at Nasa/JPL Caltech and again for the
April 30, 1998 American Film Institute in Los Angeles. <- see wired article with Tom Hanks and Bill Anders (Apollo 8 astronaut).
