Dutch broadcast technology specialist Mobile Viewpoint has introduced a new solution for live broadcast that will make it possible to use off-the-shelf technology for professional newsgathering.
At IBC in Amsterdam last month, the company showcased a portable solution called 3G-S, using two Android-based mobile phones to deliver live feeds from any location. The solution turns standard mobile devices into broadcast equipment, the company said, and enables cost-effective newsgathering for the broadcast industry and individual journalists.
The performance of the 3G-S can also be enhanced with an external camera and extended battery pack.
