The closest approximation for PCs seems to be WebCamMax. Chris says it's not nearly as good but it can embed those screen parts together in exactly the same way. Not sure if it can handle HD though.

Here you go -- http://chris.pirillo.com/how-to-stream-video/

Another livestreaming (though not 24/7 livestreaming like Chris does) website that uses CamTwist, UStream and similar tools as Chris -- running on Macs, of course -- is Spacevidcast.com. I can be found over there on Thursday nights (Friday's, coordinated universal time) during their weekly live space news & interviews broadcasts.

If you have Windows you can use something called Webcam max,you have to use something called Pip Source ( Video Overlay From A Selected Area On Your Desktop ) Try it out.

yep, Camtwist. I have used it before but only for a short while. I lost the name and was still trying to remember until christhecoolboy reminded me.
