I (perhaps wrongly) posted this only on the general list. Thanks to those of
you have have already volunteered your reflector as a mirror:

On Sunday, June 11, 1995 President Bill Clinton will be the
Commencement Speaker at Dartmouth's graduation exercises. The object of
PROJECT BILLVISION is to broadcast President Clinton's speech LIVE on
the Internet using Cornell's CU-SeeMe desktop videoconferencing
software. You can join in the fun! For more info:


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.
These could be users running CU-SeeMe or, preferably, reflectors set up to
MIRROR the Dartmouth transmission. Those reflectors connected as mirrors will
receive packets from Dartmouth and rebroadcast to the viewer.

So, if you can "loan" us your reflector on that day, please do!!! Contact me at
the address below...As the day gets closer, I'll send out detailed information
to help with reflector configuration.
