Tim Ward of NWU mentioned vBrick on another email list.  They make 
self-contained boxes that have Ethernets and NTSC jacks on them, which do 
MPEG-2 encoding and decoding.


Remind me: what's the problem with converting to mpeg-2?  Is it the encode 
problem (expensive) or the fact that mpeg-2 decode is more expensive than 
h.261 decode?
