Comet Technologies software empowers citizen journalists
Comet Technologies is now offering its new Comet Citizen Journalist, a software package that makes it easier for TV newsrooms to work with non-professional reporters by allowing them to transmit real-time, live streaming video as well as still images from their cell phones to the station.
Stations can provide the new software package to viewers via download directly onto their cell phones. From there, studio personnel can manage multiple video streams and immediately decide what news goes live to air, live to the Web or is made available for later online access. The software also provides for automatic upload of citizen journalists’ still images to the station's Web site.
