Great.  So, as I asked earlier (as yet unanswered):

I have in my hand an NTSC video cable and an XLR with audio.  How do I hook
that to the mbone?  :-)

Simple. 

Go get yourself an encoder - VBrick, Envivio, Tandberg, etc, etc - there's
plenty out there, take your pick. That'll take video + audio as an input, and
output the encoded video (typically MPEG-2 or H.264 in an MPEG-2 transport
stream) as multicast.

Hook that into your favourite ISP that supports global multicast (several of
the tier-1's do), and you're all done.
