[edit] Computer Equipment

As we will be shooting using dvswitch (in the main hall; at least); please list /any/ computer equipment you will be able to bring; even if you don't plan on using it all the time. Laptops or other small quiet machines are needed for Firewire capture and tally light control. We have Firewire cards for machines that lack them. Fast machines are needed for live mixing, recording and transcoding. These can all be done on different machines; doing all of them on the same machine will probably require 2 processors/cores. Mixers must have 1000Base-T ports; other systems only need 100Base-TX.
