Our live feeds require at least 650kb/s (0.65mb/s) to 4500kb/s (4.5mb/s) dedicated upload speed.
NRCW TV™ & NRCW Pro Video™ takes pride in providing high quality video for online content. Our native resolution is 1080i and typically stream 720p or 480p and we are proud to run true 3CCD prosumer and HDV professional cameras. The web presence is becomming the premier and first choice for video today and NRCW Companies are the first choice in affordable web content solutions. 3CCD is necessary to provide a quality green screen environment (especially when live broadcasting).
Sometimes factors such as limited bandwidth available at locations and venues creates a squeeze on our live broadcasting productions. It is vital that clients understand and meet the minimum requirements.
The minimum amount of bandwidth is very important to us and must be available in order to stream to our video servers to uphold the NRCW TV brand. If a client does not provide that bandwidth, video quality will be reduced to the entire viewing audience.
Clients pay for the best production avaliable, today, especially in this economy, we want the highest quality and best professional work possible for your dollar. It is worth spending a few hundred extra dollars on your internet connection if a high quality live stream is available to your viewers. The same applies to marketing a live or recorded production. The more you spend (skillfully), the greater return you will receive.

What is bandwidth?
Bandwidth is technically not the proper term, however it has come to represent what we refer to as the amount of data that is transfered in a set amount of time.
Examples: You have a standard digital photo that is 1mb. How long will it take to transfer if you have a 200kbps (kilobytes per second) connection? Answer: About 5 seconds.
Explanation: In video, we have to reverse the equasion to match so that the video size and quality (quality would refer to compression) suitable to the actual connection speed (because we cant change the god given element of time). So if we are streaming that photo in the example live over the internet, we would have to reduce the size or quality pretty drastically in order for the viewer to see it. Consider high quality video to have 25 to 30 frames (or images) per second. So one frame [still image from video] would need to be about 6.6kb (this is not including the bandwidth that the audio also takes up).
We have a 40mb/s fiber optic connection at our office studio if you need to do a live show and do not have the necessary internet requirements.
