Submission DIY Live Video Broadcast Streaming?

RiscIt writes: I'm currently consulting with a (very) local television station who wishes to stream their broadcasts live on the web. They have a rather modest internet connection, which can support a single outgoing video stream without getting in the way of other bandwidth demands, but that's about it. The theory is that we should be able to stream to a web/video server which then replicates it to all current viewers. What software technologies are available today, preferably open source and free, which would help make this work? Solutions which can be viewed with the standard flash plugin are preferable. A "Slingbox to Flash" server would be ideal, for example.
