HELP! Video/sound to binary numbers (in real time)

    May 09 2011 | 8:40 pm
    Hello there!
    I want to make a visual/audio based installation, where music is created by the way the audience act in front of a camera. That part I figured out!
    The thing that I want to add to this project, is that the video and audio is not being 'projected' in a normal way.
    I want the videofile, and the musicfile to be projected as binary numbers.
    I've figured out how to convert a file into binary using the terminal on a mac computer.
    Here is the real question:
    Is it possible to convert audio and video files to binary in real time?
    Thank you for your help!
    Best regards
