Vizrt unveils Viz|Reporter mobile-to-air application

Vizrt has released Viz|Reporter 1.0, an application that allows easy upload of video from a mobile phone into an existing newsroom workflow without incurring further quality degradation.

Until now, news producers have had to convert and copy mobile phone images onto a PC before putting them on air. During this time-consuming process, images were compressed and the quality greatly reduced.

Viz|Reporter makes production of up-to-the-minute visuals for breaking news stories possible. Viz|Reporter runs directly on a variety of mobile multimedia phones, including models from Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Motorola. For added flexibility, the software has two methods of submitting video and stills. Users can employ a dedicated J2ME application or the phone’s own browser (WAP or XHTML) to upload content. The J2ME application uses functions available according to the security model on the device. As long as the journalist or passerby witnessing a news event has mobile network coverage, images can be transmitted. The content is then immediately accessible for production and control room staff or for use online.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
