Instructions for the "LIVE" viewing of the Church Ground Run to commence at 8 am on Monday 4th May 2009.
To view the race "LIVE" requires a Yahoo identity (i.e. a yahoo email account) and yahoo messenger installed on your computer. Start the Yahoo messenger program and add firstname.lastname@example.org as a contact in your yahoo messenger. Select the "nevisaaa, naaa or Nevis Athletic Assoc" contact, right click and then select the option "View webcam", likely found under "Actions" or "More Actions". The race will be seen in the webcam window.
The race will be streamed using a video camera with zoom capabilities, shot from the back of a moving pickup. The frame rate for the video will be in the order of 3 frames per sec (normal video frame rate is 30 frames per sec), due to the limited uplink speed of the wireless equipment. The pickup will normally precede the first runner, but from time to time, will stop to get video of other runners as they pass.
The production will commence from 7:30 am as the runners get ready for the start of the race at 8:00 am. We will attempt to also provide audio during the production.
Hope you will enjoy what is likely the first time ever for a "LIVE" production of a road run in the Caribbean.
