Using Multicast over wireless

I am needing to setup multicast over wireless for imaging purposes using sms and I just have a couple of questions.  Is it best to create a new wlan for multicast only.  Are there any certain things that I need to be careful of or is it pretty straight forward?  Sorry for the broad questions I just want to make this as easy as possible.  We have around 4 Wism blades, 3 wism 2 blades, 2500 access points and NCS running it all.  They are connected to a catlayst 6509.  Thank you for any help.

No, you wouldn't need to do a seperate WLAN for muticast.  The multicast requests will flow over your current WLAN just fine, so long as you have Multicast enabled on the WLC and the LAN.
