Welcome to the anvilfire! AnvilCAM
[ Cam Help ]

The AnvilCAM was established in 1999 and netcast the Y2k celebrations from around the world with feed from New Zealand and the US. Later that year there was an aborted attempt to netcast the ABANA 2000 conference from Flagstaff, AZ. Technical disasters plagued us and the netcast was a failure.

The last original AnvilCAM netcasts were of prerecorded video including the Hugh McDonald rolling mill demo in 2001. Hardware, time and connection problems forced us to abandon even the local prerecorded netcasts. It had been an expensive failed experiment.

In the inteveining 6 years our hardware and much software became unusable. So we now have some new hardware and software to test.

March 17, 2007 we netcast the Big BLU Hammer, Hammer-In from Morganton, NC. However, technical issues almost defeated us once again. Lucily one of the attendees was a networking expert and got us on-line. If was sucessful and we will try to have more of AnvilCAM in the future.
