I had an interesting meeting today with a Grad Art student. She's planning on broadcasting her final project as a live performance this Fall, and wondered if Libraries and Cultural Resources could help stage it all; it'll be displayed in our Museum, after all.
After a nice chat over coffee I told her I thought we could indeed help, but I need a couple of suggestions from y'all. I'll do my own homework as well, but if you already know of the perfect solution, would you let me know?
1) Are you aware of a wearable webcam? Something that could broadcast a person's point of view? I'm aware of the sport-cams that will record to media, but am so far unaware of something of that size that can broadcast live.
2) There's going to be an audience participation component - probably a live webchat. Something like Ustream will probably do the trick, but we're concerned about inappropriate content appearing in the chat stream; this whole project will be recorded and archived as part of the final thesis. Are you aware of a service that does some sort of live profanity-filtering on the chat stream? Other suggestions besides Ustream?
Thanks in advance all, and I'll let you know as the project progresses.
