NEAF webcam

The CN live webcam last year at NEAF was a hoot! Are there any plans to have one this year?

Thanks
Bart

I really hope there is a live webcam this year. It's always a lot of fun.

There better be, that's what I'm going for -- to man (er, woman) it again! Be sure and wave to me!

I think they haven't had a chance to test the cameras like usual this year because they're also getting ready to move the store into their new building in Oklahoma...either that, or because they're confident the set-up works. But that's only my guess.

I have a backup HD camcorder if needed; Mike Loffland is supposed of be one of the attendees (I think he's the webcast guru); Alan said Mike Bieler won't make it this year.

Any NEAF live webcasts or live streams? Yes, CN does a great job, but wondering about any others? NEAIC is also going on right now, anyone know if there are live streams of that too? They should put a DVD together of those talks, i'd buy it.

John

No live streaming or recordings of NEAIC.

AFAIK, the only webcast at NEAF is CN's. I'll see Alan again later today and ask.

That's right. I've had a chance to check, and some presentations are being recorded. Some are being produced by the lecturer. This is the first year for NEAIC-sponsored video (experienced crews are being used), so how and if they'll be made available hasn't been determined.

For now, I'm told, a lot depends on how the videos turn out.

NEAF may also be videoed by these crews, but that is still pending. Streaming video is still expected only by the CN/Astronomics team, although there is a possibility of another. CN/Astronomics, as of now, will be the only interactive webcast.

The NEAF cameras are experiencing technical difficulties at the moment. Internet connectivity is down. We will make them available as soon as we can.

Sorry folks, it's still down. Something to do with the router, probably. It's not just the CN webcam, it's also vendors who use the internet for payment processing.

We're going to try a mobile hotspot, see if that works. May be too slow..

I'm so glad y'all enjoyed the webcast this year!! We had a few technical difficulties, not all of which were our fault, and didn't get to do everything we've done in past years, but overall it went pretty darn good. We had some good interviews with interesting people for whom y'all had interesting questions, which is great.

So on behalf of the entire webcam crew (though without their knowledge ), thanks again for joining us on the webcast for NEAF 2012, our 5th year on the air!!

Steph, No disrespect to the guys that filled in on cam duties while you took a well deserved break but IMHO there is 'Something Missing' when you are not there. It just didn't seem the same. I dunno exactly what it is, your wit and humour, the friendly greetings and banter with people as they log on. Whatever it is its just not the same when you are not on duty.

The day you stop attending Neaf and (wo)manning the cam will be a sad day indeed !
