Hey guys,

Wanted to get some advice on what a good solution would be to allow camera operators out in the field to send their feeds back to the studio, not aware of anything Newtek does to allow this so wondered what your suggestions might be? Would need to keep costs as low as possible.

Regards,

Chris

What kind of environment? News, sports, government? Also what kind of distance?

I work in education so its to allow our journalism students to do remote live broadcasts which can be fed back in to the main studio and presenters. Distance would be local to the university so anything up to about 6 miles.

Ok, lots of options then. Do you have AE software? If you do, using NDI could be a really easy move if most of the places you go are on campus and work of the same network. When I first heard the news of NDI I immediately thought of all the uses we could do on campus.

If you dont have AE and NDI, I know a lot of places are now using bonded cellular internet and "backpack" solutions. I know Teradek and companies offer these type of wireless point to point connections. I have a VidiU model but it sends the video straight from the camera to the internet, not back to a studio.

Here are some recent article Newtek published on how other people send signals.
