Automated real-time media delivery system; an autonomous BIT system. A dynamic archive for real-time monitoring critical information. BANGBANG is a network of low-power [micro]videocameras--gunfire-activated and sensor-triggered--delivering live audiovisual events of gunshot amplitude to the BIT network. Specialized equipment includes: network of microvideo cameras, sensors, video transmitters, WWW interface software, database archive of audio visual events and a network of regional BIT agents worldwide. BANGBANG camera sensitivity can include radioactivity, word recognition, color detection, path of motion. This BIT networked news device supplies sustained and accurate news data. Online functional description:

1) Preloads update report, includes all events since last monitoring session concatenated in 10 seconds
2) On completion returns user to live monitoring session This function enables returning users to view content that was generated in their absence--i.e. if the user is not online and monitoring the broadcast when a media event occurs, the event is stored in the system.

Accumulated events are delivered upon user's return to the site as a cascade of stored media or hail of bullets. BIT system allows access to media regardless of content significance. Relay on public FM channels allows bullet saturation reach for local area; facilitates local listenership/non-Web enabled.
