Dylan Reeve and a small group of no-budget podcaster friends decided to embark upon the challenge of broadcasting live election coverage of the New Zealand General Election online in HD. Live trainwreck or success?

Great overview. As someone who does live streaming myself I have a number of questions.
What were you actually streaming with? A computer with Adobe FMLE, other software or a hardware encoder?
How were you bringing in Skype? Did you have a Skype computer tied to the ATEM? Did you have multiple simultaneous Skype callers (panel discussion style)? The mix minus audio for this can be challenging.
I see both Windows and Mac computers in the shots. What went into your computer choices? Did you have platform (OS) preferences for certain functions?
