    Our Team in Zambia Uses Streaming Media to Broadcast Solar Eclipse Worldwide
     
   
VAMCOM’s west coast affiliate, SmashTV, was selected by San Francisco’s famous science museum – The Exploratorium – to travel to Zambia to record and broadcast via streaming media the Solar Eclipse which occurred there June 21. The event was available to schools and museums anywhere in the world, through links with participants and sponsors, including NASA.

To “witness” the eclipse for yourself, please visit the Exploratorium’s Eclipse Page at http://www.exploratorium.edu/eclipse/zambia/index.html.

Streaming media is much like live TV broadcasting. The information is seen or heard in a continuous stream, in this case as the eclipse occurred, instead of being downloaded and viewed later.

Most people are lucky to see even one total eclipse. This is our team’s third. They were also selected to broadcast solar eclipses in 1997 and 1998 for the Exploratorium and the Discovery Channel. Another event, a live webcast of the Hubble Telescope Servicing Mission featured live NASA video feeds.

Streaming media and webcasting is an efficient way to share information with customers and employees. There could be applications beneficial for your company. Our affiliate, SmashTV has installed live cams from ESPN’s Winter X-Games, and hundreds of other music, entertainment, and education webcasts for a broad range of clients.
