Lost Remote reports Fox News had some of the first live video on the air from the scene of the NYC plane crash, thanks to a cell phone held by a Fox photographer. Turns out it was a Treo running CometVision software, which is set up to broadcast live video and audio with a touch of a button — even automatically alert newsroom staffers with an email.
Hardly perfect video but sure to get better and better. Now here’s a question for the men and women who work in Learfield network newsrooms: Can you think of any notable stories you could have better covered were you so equipped? A lot of what we cover is “talking head” stuff that doesn’t make for good video, but I’d like to hear your thoughts on this. [via Buzz Machine]
