Reduce time to broadcast, enhance news coverage, and increase revenues by acquiring and distributing content directly from the scene of events with a mobile device.
The Challenge for Media Companies
Media companies are challenged to provide captivating content and the best news coverage first. News directors must commit to developing stories early in the day, and struggle with last-minute redeployment of reporters for breaking news events. Reporters and camera crews in the field increasingly require tools to remotely research stories, collaborate with news teams and topical experts, acquire content, and distribute for broadcast. First to broadcast is the hallmark of success.

With wireless data solutions, news directors can redeploy individual reporters and content acquisition assets to cover breaking news. Reporters can research stories wirelessly, collaborate with news teams, acquire content, and submit stories directly from the field. When there's no time to lose, a reporter can also shoot news footage from their handheld device while the cameraman sets up the satellite truck and video equipment.
What's more, media sales teams can benefit from up-to-the-minute wireless access to customer information, advertising inventory, and station ratings and demographics, thus strengthening their customer relationships.
