The use of real-time video to provide a web laboratory (web lab) for research of bees is being conducted as a part of the VINCES (Virtual Network Center of Ecosystem Services) consortium, which focuses ecosystems services research, such as polinization and photosynthesis. Currently, monitoring of a mandassaia beehive (Melpona quadrifasciata anthidioides) is done through the analyses of the sound emitted by the bees and also by the video recorded and transmitted in real time on the Internet. This kind of video application is very bandwidth consuming even considering high-speed networks. This work presents a brief quality comparison of the most used video compression formats in real-time video transmission at a low data-rate and the proposed structure for transmission of High Definition Videos on a High Speed Internet2 Network. This work intends to show useful information related to the proposed weblab structure concerning video applications in which the configuration of the video compression format and its quality will play an important role.
