Visitors to a special web site –- http://holiday.kua.net –- will be able to watch children play in 20 tons of real snow, using wireless video streaming equipment provided by KUA.net, the Internet division of Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA). The web site will feature continuous high- and low-bandwith live images from the festival, a directional map to the event, holiday jokes, and an online chat forum where visitors to the festival can chat with folks at home.
“We’ve seen tremendous success with our recent webcasts of Viva Osceola and the Osceola Art Festival,” said Chris Gent, KUA’s manager of corporate communications. “3,487 visitors participated in our last webcast… this weekend’s holiday festivities will probably draw even more online visitors.”
In addition, KUA.net will offer a complimentary cyber café for those who wish to surf the World Wide Web or check personal e-mail while attending the festival. The café will use KUA.net’s state-of-the-art wireless network that delivers data at 11 Mbps (11 million bits per second) –- 200 times faster than a standard 56k dial-up connection!
