We are exploring live streaming audio and video to Smart TVs and Android Smartphones or Tablets using Chromecast dongle and Android app.
We stream to Android Smartphones and Tablets via Soundcloud.
In July 2011, I explored setting up a wifi/ustream video/podcast recording venture with an ethnic church in Sydney CBD. This never happened probaby due to lack of money. IP TV video on demand will be introduced soon via FetchTV or similar. YouTube for backing was included in a very innovative way.
In 2014 we developed Salt Table Helper Mobile App for Science open data competition by Qld DSITIA using groundwater electrical conductivity open data and visiting a cane farm in Burdekin area of Home Hill North Queensland to shoot video. We produced a
YouTube video for the competition using Adobe Premiere from Adobe Creative Cloud monthly subscription on Windows laptop.
CASIO CTK-7200 Demo - keyboard - touch sensitive
In October 2017, we are
teaching a piano student using a CASIO CTK-7200 electronic keyboard. This has features for pedal, SD card, MIDI, editing data files, line in and out, organ pitch bends, split keyboard and drums. CASIO provides Windows and MacOSX drivers and software to edit sounds.
Band Recording in Studio
I was in RooRythmics Bush Band in Eastern Sydney Australia as fiddle player and recorded a demo tape with band members in Waverley at
Charing Cross Studio in 1990s. Recording was on demo cassette. Session took whole day.
We plan on creating or broadcasting Podcasts of music and online training using Apple iTunes and MP3s for iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, and RIM Blackberry.
In June 2017, we are planning on doing violin digital recording at Caboolture Hub studio.
In August 2013, I visited
QUT Robotronica and 7bit Hero a techno-band played with a live mobile games app animating background of band as they were playing, mixing gaming with music!
Since about 2005, we have been planning to develop audio tracks or story lines for video games for mobile phones or gaming devices. This would include Windows XNA games (XBox360/Windows Phone).
In January 2010, I explored configuring a Linux server to run
Rivendell when attempting to replace obsolete OS/2 system at Rhema FM in Orange NSW. They opted for a Windows system and reentering all the tracks manually instead of automating the transfer using scripts which I could have done easily. As they only had volunteers and very low budget, the community group did things manually to save money making my ideas impossible to implement.
I invest in or rent my own equipment and training so I don't get left behind by Luddites. I then reap the rewards of investing in new technology and opening up horizons in media broadcasting over the Internet with pretty much limitless possibilities to help the world's peoples no matter where they are or what language and culture they have.
In December 2012, I started working on Wordpress audio streaming project using Rivendell and IceCast but it fell through due to project management bungling (job was cancelled but customer kept probing for specs even though no funds were coming in due to job being cancelled).

In 2012 as Webmaster of
Digital Publications Indexing SIG, I have created an MP3, streaming music, audio and ebook library using a digital library system for entertainment, broadcasting or education. This includes audio books for libraries.
Multimedia ebooks including pictures, animation, video and text will be explored and delivered over the internet.
There are a range of media players for various operating systems.
We consult re Network Area Storage and wifi hotspots to store and serve the digital media.
Mobile Educational Apps
In 2014, we created JSON and organised multimedia audio-visual material for a mobile app in Sencha for English as a Second Language (ESL) Bible movie application.
In 1992, I catalogued music CDs in Bowen Library, Maroubra NSW just after I finished my Graduate Diploma Information Management-Librarianship at UNSW. It was a very satisfying job. I got to enjoy snippets of the CDs and saw a music collection being setup properly so people could browse and borrow classical and jazz music.
In 1992, I setup a Mac
Filemaker Pro database of sheet music holdings for Music in Communities Network next door to the Australian Music Centre, The Rocks, Sydney.
In 1991, I catalogued music manuscripts of Australian composers at the
Australian Music Centre, The Rocks, Sydney, NSW as part of my librarianship diploma at UNSW.
In about 1996, as President of Waverley Randwick Philharmonic Society Inc, I licensed usage of sheet music with
VoIP Phone Calls
We use and support Skype and VoIP phone calls and videoing systems over the Internet via ADSL or wireless. This works very cost efficiently in Caboolture and lets us service Sydney, Wollongong, Brisbane, Canberra and other cities far from us at very low cost without being onsite.
