I'm looking at a small project for a friend and I have become a little stuck.
Without giving away the whole idea, we are looking at the streaming of content to tablets and/or smart phones.
Firstly the streaming will ONLY be in the local area so there won't be a web requirement. The receiving device will have an app to receive the stream and then to play it. Conceptually this is not rocket science and I think a lot of the software side I can deal with.
I am worried by the network and that is my question. It will need to be a network that 'any' device can access, so that's wi-fi then. But what type and how would I work out the capacity that would be needed.
For simplicity, if I say there will be a single live stream and up to 50 devices simultaneously receiving it what do I need to get the bandwidth?
