A virtual TV station and chat room have been created allowing video from laptop cameras to be made available on the site. To keep costs down, the video quality is limited but tests have showed that it should be a useful option for those too far away to make it to the meetings or who knows, some bowls championship or any other activity.
Although the testing gave promising results with a 12 mega bit/second connection, the required minimum bandwidth was not available at the Webbington hotel and the staggering, almost stationary video was useless. The Wifi Booster promised by the hotel turned out to be hard wired into another conference room. 4 people watched in spite of the hopeless performance.
