The University of Missouri School of Journalism’s Reynolds Journalism Institute recently used Quicklink TX for an on-air interview with C-SPAN on the Senate presidential impeachment trial.
Staff from RJI utilized Quicklink TX to broadcast Missouri School of Law Professor and author Frank Bowman for a live, one-hour interview on C-SPAN’s morning program, Washington Journal. For this set-up, RJI easily established a two-way, high quality, ultra-low delay call.
“Because of Quicklink, we’re able to sell our small-scale facility to others as a site from which to do these national and international broadcasts. It’s like we’re able to play with the big boys without owning a microwave truck or satellite truck,” said Travis McMillen, senior media producer at RJI. “I’ve found that Quicklink TX provides a powerful, yet straight-forward experience for both the far site and the near site.”
RJI also uses Quicklink TX on a weekly basis during Global Journalist, a ‘virtual roundtable’ program featuring guests from anywhere in the world. During the show, three journalists join the in-studio moderator as guests to discuss a topic from their point of view as the journalist covering the story.
Quicklink TX is also available as a compact and portable unit with inbuilt camera and lighting. The Quicklink TX Skype-in-a-box allows universities and corporations to connect to any global broadcaster in studio grade quality. For more information, see here.
