Live remotes come to KUJH. On Tuesday, March 25, we broadcast a debate among student senate candidates live from Woodruff Auditorium in the Kansas Union. We used VBricks belonging to NTS for transmitting the broadcast-quality signal over the internet (we've used this before on a few occasions such as graduation and the Dole Institute dedication). We used a rented NewTek Tricaster for switching. In addition to the debate we also did a live shot during the 5:30 newscast from the same location.
More good news (we think). We found two VBricks on eBay for $60 apiece (they are normally several thousand) and have purchased them. They're older models and we haven't tried them yet but if they work I'll assume the usual news-director position and decree that we have to do a live shot on every show!
