satelite video

I know this is possible, news stations do it daily, What is the blueprint and what would the field producer need with him. Concerning beeming live video back to the receiving production room. Lets say a one man video guy goes into the mountains running a HVRZ1u and has to travel light. His main concern is sending live video from the mountains via a portable satelite with audio. What hardware would he need to accomplish this. The receiving room would then broadcast it live or with a small delay. What kind of satelite and hardware would the camera guy need in the mountains, what are the choices. Thanks.

Pick up an issue of DV Magazine, and there is a company selling satelite transmission setups with a laptop. It will allow you to capture and broadcast live video over the internet. Is that sort of what you want?

Keith, I believe he wants to send back video via satellite they way news stations do it.

These days, a lot of remote video coming from freelancers is encoded to MPEG2 at 6 to 8 mbs bandwidth and fed to satellite or if internet is available, via FTP. CNN and TWC take these kinds of feeds.

At Sony's NAB press conference, they demonstrated a live HD feed over a 2.5mbs internet connection being projected on the main presentation screen. It looked awesome! Of course, that requires RT hardware encoding.

The setup I was reffering to, I believe runs around $11,000. How much for the setup the stations use? That is microwave, right?

Sorry Boyd, my medication is still being adjusted ;)

Sorry about the cross thread, Boyd what Forum do you think this thread should be under, I could'nt relate this 'live video feed' idea to one in particular. Again sorry about that, just trying to gain some knowledge. Won't happen again.

If they have a problem with where it's at, they'll move it, and let you know. These guys are always hard at work.

The 'Tools of DV Production' would probably be the best location for an inquiry such as this.

As Boyd said, it's better to have one thread in the wrong forum which we can move, than to have crossposts in several forums.

Why are we opposed to crossposting, you ask?

Because we want folks to be able to search and find information more effectively. That means having all the responses to a given inquiry like yours in one place. It also keeps respondents from feeling like they have to answer the same post in multiple locations.

regards,

If anyone has any suggestions concerning a hardware and software live, wireless, video package the info would be greatly appreciated. I need to know what is available for the Field guy(transmitting rig). The field guy would be running a Z1 with audio. He would need to transmit video and audio wireless. Sorry I accidentally changed the topic of this thread into a cross threading issue, just trying to get it back to the beginning topic. Thanks
