hi ken (& list),
yes indeed, audience accessibility has always been very important for us
with UpStage; for a long time we had artists & audiences who were on
dial-up & had no possibility to get broadband where they lived - & now
we get people on unstable mobile networks, which is another story.

& our streaming is also at the low end of things; we have just had a
show that had 4 webcams streaming together through UpStage, & we did (as
always) have some issues with lag but apart from that it functioned
pretty well. not HD, nor stereo uncompressed audio, but creative
communication :)
