The DRUMSTRONG handBOOK is a good tool with customizable info for your event. drumSTRONG UkraineDRUMSTRONG UKRAINE :: 2011

:: Global WEBCAST Factors ::

Here's what you'll need to WEBCAST your Drum Circle to us so that we can see you and play with you at DRUMSTRONG :: PLACE ::  A well lit place works best. You'll need electric power and high speed internet connection (dial up won't work). Hard wired internet connection will work much better than wireless. EQUIPMENT :: A computer that can connect to the internet, a video camera that can connect to the computer (web cams will work, also some laptops have cameras built in and you can just point it at your circle). Make sure your camera also has a micro phone! or attach a microphone (We want to hear you drumming as well as see you). A Monitor, computer or projection screen to see us.. Sometimes a TV monitor will work. Possibly speakers. WEBCAST ::  We will set up a Ustreamtv webcast channel for you and send you specific info on the URL (the web address to send your webcast through) and instructions on "how to broadcast". Look on the Global Events page to see what we’ve ‘named’ your DRUMSTRONG event and use the city named after “DRUMSTRONG” for reference. Extras :: A message board to hold up to the camera with your DRUMSTRONG City on the top and you can write messages to us (and the world). Drumstrong 2011 30 72_2 drumSTRONG
