This is only semi-topical, but since there's been a lot of discussion of network transmission of formerly proprietary audio-related data in a Giga context, I thought it would be reasonable to post something general on the topic.
Between MOL, Giga-Teleport and/or Wormhole, and now VNC applications, it seems like it's possible to move a studio's entire data flow to a general-purpose ethernet connection. I'm curious how much digital traffic along these lines a typical local network can take before its performance degrades below the level of traditional connections.
For example, is it reasonable to network two Giga PC's to a host machine, sending their audio through Teleport or Wormhole, doing MIDI exclusively via MOLCP, and using a VNC solution to view the Giga machines' video output and send mouse/keyboard commands, all at once? Has anyone tried this sort of "everything by ethernet" solution and gotten good results?
