I don't mind being the mule to transport equipment, but there are lots 
of logistics that need to be worked out for this to happen.  For 
instance, which server will act as the video stream archive/multicast 
server?  svlug.org?  Do we need another box, like videos.svlug.org w/ 
more bandwidth and/or a better processor?  Also, what type of format do 
we record in?  DivX?  MPEG?  AVI?  WMV?  ;-)

Another good one is simply, "Who will operate the camera gear during the 
meetings?"  The server is designed so that you just plug in a camera via 
one if the many available interfaces, so that's not an issue, but 
someone still has to hit the "Record" button on the camera.  :-)  Ah, 
low tech.

Like I said, let's chat about this before/after the meeting tonight.  I 
think we can get a lot of stuff out in the open in person and at least 
figure out whether this is feasible or even desired by SVLUG members.
