How Fox streamed live video from cell phone

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]
