WPRI Uses Telecast POV Systems to Power R.I. News Bureau
CBS affiliate WPRI-TV, together with The Providence Journal, has tapped Telecast to provide its point-of-view (POV) system to help create a news bureau at the newspaper.

The Bureau Link POV system has a 10/100 Ethernet path that provides WPRI staff with the tools to operate cameras and audio gear from their PCs using a cross-town connection. The return path of the system allows reporters to voice over feeds that the WPRI control room switches up.

"Our news bureau gives WPRI reporters the ability to go live from a location outside our main studio without needing a videographer to operate the camera or a microwave van to transmit the signal back to our station," said Gary Brown, news director, WPRI.

To install the fiber system and indoor camera, The Providence Journal worked with Telecast and broadcast systems integrator By Request Communications, based in Marlboro, Mass. The first live shot occurred on Election Day in November.
