Inside Story, the popular Al Jazeera program, provides analysis and commentary on recent news stories. The Donald W. Reynolds University of Missouri School of Journalism and Aljazeera collaborated using the Quicklink TX Skype transceiver in order to produce content for the series.
As both establishments had a Quicklink TX they were able to easily communicate two way high quality audio/video over the public internet. This simple solution meant the Skype call from Missouri was available live over SDI in the Aljazeera studio.
Travis McMillen, Video Producer at the Reynolds Journalism Institute explains: “We’ve done 2 way calling with a couple of different cable channels in the past but the setup was always clunky. On this occasion I needed to offer Aljazeera a professional two-way video/audio solution using Skype”
Aljazeera achieved successful, issue free live programming. Travis enthuses that “having Quicklink in-house certainly puts us back on the cable-news-network-map”.
The Quicklink TX hardware is also now available with multiple Skype call options. For more information, please contact our sales department on +1792 720880 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
