One can only speculate on bandwidth, but a further source reveals that they
are using "multicast wi-fi"

It's all powered by Cisco's new StadiumVision Mobile, which reps compared

> the same whether I'm alone in the stadium or surrounded by 19,000 other
> Nets fans. In practice, it works remarkably well — I didn't get a chance to

The stream is delayed about two seconds from the game itself, which for

> announcers, though, since they're always slightly behind the game as it
> unfolds.
