Live from the tournament hall

Not really live, but vision from the tournament hall nonetheless. While live coverage of chess tournaments is mainly about relaying the moves via a web interface, there have been attempts at providing video coverage as well. For the moment this is often in the form of an end of round summary, interspersed with some live action shots. However I am sure there will come a time when video coverage of the games will begin to catch on (depending on cheap bandwith I guess).
Here is a taste of where this is heading (minus the shaky camera work). It is from the ChessKids national Championship and features Karl Zelesco (L) against Michael Kethro (R). There are more videos from Chesskids evets here (including the completion of this game).
