Richard has setup webcams all over the Wellington Premiere site near the embassy theatre to capture all things Rings for the ROTK Premiere set for later today (December 1st in NZ). Follow all the links according to your connection speed.

Special thanks goes out to Positively Wellington for the connections, bandwidth, doughnuts and coffee, the kitchen sink and everything else they helped Richard out with! [Positively Wellington]

The live video from the event can be viewed by clicking on the links below. 5 bit rates are available to suit connections speeds. The exact URL of each stream is also provided in case of difficulty. Paste these URLs into your windows Mediaplayer, if you have difficulty making the connection.

- 56kbps stream
- 56kbps audio stream
- 28kbps audio stream

NOTE: There will be two new webcams going in shortly. There will only be test patterns on them as they are powered from the van and so will only be live when we are there. BUT they have cool images. The images will only be available when staff are "on site"

Cam 1 It will be pointing at the "stage" and be about 10 meters away.

Cam 2 Will be the other and will be looking up the carpet from the Embassy to Readings. So you will get "full frontal" shots of the stars as they walk to the theatre. Maybe thats a poor choice of words......

Other webcams brought to our attention:

citylink.co.nz Overlooks the red carpet and the embassy, updates every 15 minutes.

palantir.citylink.co.nz Looking northwest up Courtenay Place towards Taranaki St. updates every 5 seconds.
