    We stream our (so far) volleyball and basketball games on Ustream (ustream.tv/fmupatriots) using a tricaster.  So far, so good.  Only problem we’ve had is integrating the scoreboard into the graphics program on the Tricaster for live scoring.  Another quandry is whether to use the athletics acct for commencement, or to create another one.

    We used Watershed for a while (the premium version of Ustream without ads) but I was not impressed. The image quality was bad (even though we passed it a high quality stream from Adobe Live Encoder) and the support was nonexistent. We just moved to EdgeCast since they claim to do mobile streaming. We’ll see how it goes.
