Live shot

Here's a link to that live shot:

And one more thing

How many of your stations are using something other than satellite/microwave feeds for live shots or to backhaul packages to the newsroom, and if you are, what do you use?

Another first

Damn I love the Web! KUJH did it's first out-of-town LIVE shot from Indianapolis Friday night. Video quality wasn't terrific, but acceptable, and while Channel 6 was doing pre-taped like-lives we were there "in real time" as they say.

We've also been doing same-day packages from the tournament sites which look as good as a satellite feed to the average viewer. With that kind of quality they take a long time to upload/download, but it's still faster than FedEx.
