Is it capable of transcoding and streaming in real time a live program? 
That's what I think the OP was looking for.

Of course you could just reduce your bitrate and resolution to the point 
where a slow network could handle it, but I was assuming that the OP 
wanted a high-quality recording, but just wanted to watch it in reduced 
quality, I may have been wrong on that.

If you have an existing recording then a lot of options are open.
