For audio broadcasting Icecast2 is a good option. –  Takkat Aug 25 '11 at 16:11

You can even search for a p2p-tv application which runs on linux. Remember to broadcast 1000 users at normal rates which are 400kbps poorly, there is no home connection that can deal with it... Web applications like ustream are available also.

Do you have enough bandwidth to stream video to 1000 users? Perhaps services like ustream.tv and blip.tv will suit your needs.
