RooCam: SCHEDULE

The RooCam doesn't usually have a set schedule. However, your best chances for seeing something other than a test pattern are Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights, between 9:00pm and Midnight, U.S. Central Time.

Check back often, however, and watch what happens!

 


 

RooCam: What is it?

The RooCam is actually three computers: There's my Tablet PC, Luna, where I do my drawing/coloring. Luna's external VGA port is piped through an R/F converter into a video capture board on my Media PC, Faline, which runs UStream Producer and WinAmp to produce streaming video and audio. A third computer, Bambi, is my Linux desktop which I use to monitor the stream, interact with audience members, and do occasional lookups online.

The Original RooCam was a camcorder connected my PC via a video capture board. I also occasionally used a WebCam. The PC automatically captured images from the camera and uploaded them to the RooCam LIVE! home page, once every 3-5 minutes. The camera was usually pointed at my drawing board and gave viewers an "over the shoulder" view while I was drawing cartoons and creating other works of art.

THE ORIGINAL ROOCAM SOFTWARE!

The original RooCam was operated by RooCam 2.0 from RooIndustria Software. This program can acquire an image from any TWAIN-compliant video source, save the image as a jpeg file, then upload the jpeg to a remote host computer, manually or automatically via FTP, at set intervals. The help files have yet to be written, but hopefully you will find the program is reasonably self-explanatory.
