As a part of the LINK (Local Initiative Network Kumamoto (Knowledge)) project, the network connection system was constructed between the Kumamoto Prefecture and the Kumamoto University with several network servers; Web, e-Learning, TV conference and streaming distribution servers. We have designed the the regional cooperation activities support system by the combination of the TV conference server and the streaming distribution server. The system can distribute the contents of TV conference as the live stream over the Internet by combining one of the TV conference client and the encoder client of the streaming server. We will present the system configuration for "The Regional contribution symposium in Kumamoto University" as an example, and discuss the problem of the degradation of the video quality and the audio delay, and indicate their solutions.
