GENERAL INFORMATION:

The Office of Instructional Services at Dartmouth will be
providing multi-camera coverage of President Clinton's speech
and will supply a LIVE FEED to various campus buildings and
local cable. PROJECT BILLVISION, based at the Thayer School
of Engineering, will separate video & audio, feeding both into
a Macintosh Quadra 840AV running CU-SeeMe. At Dartmouth's
Kiewit Computation Center a high-end server running the CU-SeeMe
reflector will receive this transmission and rebroadcast the
packets to all connected clients.

We have over 15 reflectors set up worldwide to MIRROR the
Dartmouth transmission. Those reflectors connected as mirrors
will receive packets from Dartmouth and rebroadcast to the
viewer. To help viewers find the various mirrors, we have
created a custom BillVision Nicknames file...

ftp://picard.dartmouth.edu/pub/BillVision/CUSeeMe%20Nicknames

...which you put into your preferences folder before starting
CU-SeeMe.

Please join us!
