    I watched as well. I like how you have a platform that takes what now a days would be a webcast and distribute it out to the local access TV station. Very cool concept.

    I have a local school station in my home town and we have done stuff on delay and they also take our radio feed for live events but we have never tried to send live video to them. If you don't mind me asking, what was the setup/connection for sending the video signal to air?

    We have a channel on both of the local cable providers (Comcast, and WOW) here in Huntsville. We broadcast a variety of educational and informational programming 24/7 on each channel. Our broadcast facility at ETV is tied via fiber back to both cable companies' head-end. So, when we do a remote production, all we have to do is get the signal back to ETV. In the case of the basketball game last night, it was played at a Huntsville City Schools venue. All Huntsville City Schools' facilities are networked together, so once we tied into the network at the gymnasium, it was easy to have the "signal" back into master control at ETV. We are using the Streambox as our HD-SDI to ip encoder/decoder. This is used whenever live events are sent back via a "network", that network can be over intranet as described above or over the internet if needed. Our live truck is equipped with an enterprise class KA satellite terminal which gives us a more robust and reliable internet connection as compared to cellular or bonded cellular (which the truck also has). This connection is used for "away" games or any event that doesn't take place at a HCS location. The KA terminal is also convertible to a KU terminal, so if a traditional satellite shot is required that can be accomplished as well.

    The encoder for the webstream is located at ETV, so after the signal arrives from the live venue, not only does it feed the cable channels, but the live webcast as well.

    Hey Jon, do you or any other people on here have any recommendations for vehicle mounted KA satellite systems? Also, any rough ideas on pricing and upload/download bandwidth speeds? We'd like to have a system that stores as flat as possible on top of a van roof and auto points and deploys. We have a Teradek Cube encoder / decoder pair that we could use to convert our Tricaster to IP and then back to SDI at our headend if you think that would be ok to use with a KA setup.

    Me too Chris. I looks like I might be making it this year. Been 2 years without ...


    Oh and answer to the question is the Prevost definitely doesn't handle the same as the Mini. Just wait till you see my latest builds we are working on. One is incredibly quick and agile and one is completely a classic.

    Did my first video shoot with the van today. Man it was nice to pull up roll out the cables and set up a couple of tripods. Worked like a champ.
