I posted my thoughts on this subject also to Martijn; I think live
streaming would be trivial if the bandwidth is available for outgoing
broadcasts. My idea was to put an Elphel[1] camera there for recording
and broadcast or do something with dvswitch[2].

If broadcast in IPv6 multicast, the outgoing bandwidth wouldn't be a
problem at all and could always be transcoded at a v4 proxy.
