August 2012 Meeting – ATCi’s LiveStreamPac

Broadcasters looking to save money continue to seek creative solutions to bringing remote event audio and video back to the studio. In order to bypass expensive ENG microwave or satellite systems, TV stations are exploring technology bonding several 3G or LTE mobile wireless feeds for their HD video uplinks. But there are challenges: How bulky will it be? Will it work in a busy breaking news environment? Will it work in the desert where towers are far away?
Arizona’s ATCi will bring its LiveStreamPac to San Diego for a technology presentation and demo. While several bonding systems have appeared in the past couple of years, this solution weighs only 2.5 pounds and works in a mobile wireless environment where sufficient bandwidth availability is increasingly realistic. This might just work.
Join us Wednesday, August 15, at noon at TV Magic, 8112 Engineer Road in Kearny Mesa, San Diego. ATCi buys a light lunch. Members and guests welcome, as always. We expect to be finished with the presentation by 1:30PM.
