WVEN-TV turns to BT Satnet for election night coverage

WVEN-TV in Orlando, FL, has purchased a BT Satnet unit to manage its live newsgathering needs.

The Entravision Communications station purchased the BT Satnet to provide its viewers with extensive, live coverage of news events affecting Central Florida communities during its live coverage of the Nov. 2 presidential election.

The BT Satnet unit automatically deploys and locks on the PAS Horizon 1 satellite while the camera operator logs on and books available satellite capacity as needed minutes before shooting begins.

The Satnet software dynamically allocates bandwidth, allowing the broadcaster to have additional transmission power during times of degraded weather conditions.
