The event had around 1000 participants from all around Sweden and and demonstrated both standard DV camera integration and Interactive Broadcasting over low and oscillating broadband. The hardware setup for event was a low-end DV camera, a Windows XP laptop and a Turbo 3G USB modem. The 3G uplink was stable, but varied between 50 and 300 kbit/s and stressed the adaptiveness of the Qrodo streaming to its max.

Qrodo Bykov 2.0 RC1 was released on March 20. The users will notice a hotter GUI, better support around creation, execution and viewing of Live Video Events.

Help is fully integrated in the application and video howtos and troubleshooting will have you up and running in no time.
