Is it a cable TV, or satellite feed, or internet broadcast ?

my guess pure guess is that it is a magizine that is helping with the internet broadcast? Any body else? Could be some kind of imported cow?

From what I understand it'll be internet broadcast of concerts. Good idea, if you got broadband or DSL, with Dial-up you're probably SOL. Of course, the question remains, do people want to watch concerts on their computers? Small screens, computer speakers, ect, seems to me something would be missing from the concert experience. Since Butch Trucks seems to be pretty heavily involved with Moogis, it would be nice if he would post an in-depth article on Moogis, and what's involved and what's trying to be accomplished and be willing to answer some questions about Moogis itself, then people might be more inclined to get involved with it. At this point, at for me, there's way to little information.

Wasn't is somebody's kid that coined that phrase, Moogis? Somehow linked to Butch Trucks, I think. I remember reading that somewhere on here a few years ago, I think.

MOOGIS is how the word "Yogi's" sounds when you're trying to say it after 4 tequilas and you're head is pressed against the barmaid's bosom.

from an earlier Lana post on Moogis:
"The source in this case is Butch's son Seth. When he was a little boy he pronounced music as moogis".

geez Jym... I don't know if I have time for that... you can use what you have... your TV/video card should be semi-decent and any sound card will output to your stereo.

obviously the better the equipment the better the exp.... a good HD LCD that supports both computer input and cable input is nice... probably the only piece that most people have to buy... depending on your budget and size needs you can get by wit $600-$800 for a decent display (keep in mind my house is SMALL so a 27-32" is plenty)... also a contrast of 1000:1 is nice to have as well as a brightness rating of 500 or so helps... lower contrast and brightness tend to leave things looking darker then they should on some/most displays...

I have two connections from my video car... one to a TV and one to my computer monitor so I have to pick which I'm gonna use but if yours works for both and it isn't in demand all the time by other family members then it's not really an issue... if it IS the family TV then having the two display setup works best so that you don't monopolize the display...

This sounds like a really good idea. But can you display it to full size without loss of picture quality?

well thats kind of a trick question... the quality loss comes from the down sample from when they stream it... you'll probably get a 320x240 image streamed... sometimes 640x480 (but don't count on it)...

now on a standard def TV either of those will look "normal" for the most part... on an HD TV they will not because almost all of them resize the image to their "native" resolution... so at full size on a HD TV you will see the effect of the "missing pixels" (pixels that aren't really there but are shown on the screen to create the native resolution)...

this is where it's best to have a computer monitor... you could choose 800x600 or some resolution that displays close to what your source is and maximize the clarity)...

bur this all comes back to the size of the stream... and if they could stream 640x480 with no lag it would be very watchable (albeit not even close to HD content - but definitely as good as watching a ABB VHS back in the day)... all that and it's coming to you live... which is not a bad tradeoff...

try it with a standard TV (or HD one if you have it) and look at some of the streams around the internet... AOL video site has some good quality streams to try out...

Ros this was qouted from Butch Trucks in the Beacon Webcast thread in AG.

You will be able to watch these web casts on your full screen and it will be high definition if you have any type of broad band at all. Of course you will need some minimum computer specs, but I would expect that most of you do.



This sounds very promising
