DIGITAL SATELLITE NEWSGATHERING
Presented on October 21, 2008
Invite your entire staff to attend at one low price, $295 per location. Each registration comes with access to the archived version of the program and the materials for 1-year.
As Satellite Newsgathering (SNG) technology continues to improve at a rapid rate, larger news organizations have been able to cover events from around the globe while cutting costs and smaller organizations have been expanding their operations and providing more content from the field.
Likewise, SNG trucks continue to play an vital role in the broadcasting arena, but the 24-hour news cycle means that news organizations must provide more live content worldwide. This makes smaller, portable digital SNG units the must-have tool for news organizations.
Via Satellite along with executives from leading SNG equipment manufacturers will discuss the latest issues in the SNG arena and be on hand to answer your questions. This one hour webinar will look at the latest technology available for your operations.
By attending this webinar you and your team will discover:
- What are the latest SNG technology advancements available?
- How simple can operations of SNG units be made?
- Is there a choice between small size and more power, or can you have both?
- What developments are on the horizon?
- And more!
