Mark East of iStreamPlanet writes up his recent presentation at YouTube Live MiniCon all about content acquisition and encoding.

He writes, "Acquisition and encoding for live events is all about what you can afford and how much risk you can tolerate. If you’re broadcasting from a venue that has some pretty robust Internet connectivity, the least expensive option may well be to encode the primary RTMP stream on-site and ingest directly to YouTube. Getting the video feed to the actual encoder may involve a number of different technologies– wireless, fiber optic cabling, etc– all working together to get the video from one place to another within the venue itself. Ultimately, though, it’s usually the simplest way to go– but it’s rarely the most secure or redundant."
