>An experimental video distribution system will be tested during the
>6/7/96 flight of the DC-XA at White Sands.
>Live video at approximately 10 frames per second, monochrome, will
>be sent via telephone link from the guest viewing area to a video
>server on the Internet.
>Also, after the flight, the video will be available on the server
>for access via web browsers. This is a cooperative effort between
>the Lunar Teleoperations Model I, DCSN, pTv and McDonnell Douglas.
>To view live video, web browse the site www.diaspar.com, select
>user web pages and then pTv. pTv is making their experimental Internet
>video software available for the DCXA flight event. Look for the
>latest information on the pTv web pages and system announcements.
>There are several viewers available. The latest version runs under
>Windows 95 and allows live viewing as well as "playback" of video
>files on the server. Other versions run under Windows 3.x and play
>back video but do not receive live video. All viewers work with
>popular web browsers - you download the viewer and then set your
>"MIME table" or "File Types List" to include capability to receive
>and play the video sequences.
>We are not sure at this time of bandwidth capability, final features,
>flight times, etc. Please consider this to be highly experimental,
>dependant on a lot of things working just right and some luck!
>Contact for technical details and assistance is firstname.lastname@example.org
>and contact for space-related matters is email@example.com
>Since there is usually about a 24 hour turn-around on posts to moderated
>news groups, please browse www.diaspar.com for last minute updates.
>If you can, download and test the viewer of your choice ahead of
>the flights. The server already has video from the "rotational
>maneuver" flight available for viewing. And, if the server can not
>handle a large load during the flights, check back a few minutes after
>each flight to play back the flight video.
