In a connected social media world, we have an insatiable appetite for news. Consequently, for news broadcasters’, providing quality broadcasts in hotspots around the world remains a challenge, especially to an ever more demanding audience. Thanks to advances in satellite technology, the quality of these broadcasts is now better than ever. The move to High Throughput Satellites (HTS) is likely to lead to further improvements in this area. In this panel, we talk about developments in satellite newsgathering, the potential impact of HTS here, and the unique challenges facing news broadcasters as they look to serve audiences hungry for news in all manner of locations with high quality video.
