The New Video Capabilities used for Breaking News

In the early '90's, video from the Rodney King and Reginald Denny beatings changed the way that news organizations began to gather and disseminate footage. Since that point technology has continued to revolutionize and speed the process. The Blog Lost Remote reported yesterday that Fox News had some of the first live video on the air from the scene of the NYC plane crash live via a Treo phone and CometVision. It may not be pretty (yet) but you get the picture!

  1. I recall reading a post over a year, perhaps two years ago about BBC reporters using cell/video phones from the field and not Sat phones. As memory serves the quality was rather good so why the slow adoption here in the States?

    -Quality not sufficient?
