My Students

Imagine your son or daughter or niece or nephew is starring in the school play but you have to be out of town and will miss the event. What if the school could stream the event over the Internet so that you could watch it live right from your laptop computer?

I have really awesome students that are energetic and enthusiastic.

We are a public school in a low income rural area. My students eyes lit up when I told them that we were going to try and stream our school play over the Internet. One student shouted, "Now my Dad who lives in another state can watch me!"

My Project

We are requesting a digital camcorder so that we will be able to stream school activities over the Internet. Our old camera is not capable of streaming video. We need a digital camcorder that can be used in conjunction with a computer. With a built-in 120GB hard disk drive, the Sony® DCR-SR88 Handycam® camcorder eliminates the need for tapes or discs. The professional-quality Carl Zeiss® 60x optical zoom lens delivers clear, sharp images, and Hybrid recording technology offers the flexibility to record video to the hard drive or Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media.

The problem is I had two old video cameras and one of them just broke last week.

So now I am down to one camera that uses old analog technology and need to get up to date and get a new camera for the students.
