Summary:
The first multicast video and audio link to the South Pole officially opened for business on April 1, between the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and scientists at the U.S. Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. The Internet's Multicast Backbone technology -- MBone for short -- allowed the link, a method far less expensive than any other for exchanging live sound and pictures between remote locations.
