Hi there,

I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of Boxtream v0.991

Boxtream is a mobile audio/video recording and streaming studio, made from
a set of optional hardware bricks and of a Python written, GNU GPLed,
GStreamer based software.

The software part can be used without most of the hardware, although
having hardware similar to the one used will offer more options (support
for Extron and soon Kramer A/V switchers, for example).

The Boxtream software is made of an headless encoding backend which
publishes its API over XML-RPC, and from a GUI frontend made with wxPython.

Boxtream is mostly used to record and stream compressed video of live
events like congresses, presentations, courses and so on, with or
without synchronized slides, while at the same time saving the original
audio and video sources in the native DV format, allowing postprocessing
with any tool of your choice.

Five encoding schemes are currently available, each in a set of
framerates, sizes, audio frequency,or number of audio channels, but adding
new schemes is easy, and will become even easier in future releases.
