It’s that time of year again, when geeks of all stripes gather in Austin, Texas for SXSW. Once again, I’ll be among them for Interactive and Music. To keep myself busy during Music, I’ll be live streaming several musical performances from various showcases throughout the week. I am going outfitted with a TVUpack, an interesting piece of hardware from TVU Networks. The TVUpack is a wireless video broadcast encoder and transmitter. It works by aggregating multiple off-the-shelf USB cellular data modems. Up to 10 of them can be mixed and matched across different network providers to create a robust, low latency, high bandwidth wireless pipe for transmitting full 1080p high definition video.
I’ve teamed up with Livestream to create a dedicated channel where these live performances will live. I’ll be on location in downtown Austin, streaming gigs from Wednesday, March 16th to Saturday the 19th. A full schedule will be forthcoming shortly. If you love live music, and really who doesn’t, and you can’t make it down to Austin, tune in to the live streamed broadcast and discover some kick ass new music.
