Our Mobile A/V Cart Configuration

We have several mobile A/V carts w/hardware and software (see below) capable of streaming live Flash video to the GT Wowza server. Our last cart acquisition (the KACB cart) was in August 2009. A couple of groups on campus have cloned our configuration and are using it successfully in their own environments. Please let us if you have any suggestions for improvements.
