Dartmouth College Upgrades ReadyCam® Studio to Enhance Live TV Appearances and Lower Distribution Costs
Newton, MA – February 12, 2015. VideoLink, a leading provider of video services and production, announced today that Dartmouth College, located in Hanover, New Hampshire, has upgraded their on-site ReadyCam video studio to high-definition video.
The new ReadyCam system not only captures video in high-definition (HD), but is capable of sending all video over the internet, saving hundreds of dollars over the traditional method of fiber or satellite transmission. The video studio enables experts at the Hanover, New Hampshire campus to quickly and easily access worldwide TV and cable news networks and participate in live TV interviews whenever requested.
“The VideoLink team worked closely with Dartmouth to ensure the ReadyCam’s advanced technology would enable us to react more effectively to live TV opportunities, as well as manage costs,” said Diana Lawrence, media relations director at Dartmouth College. “The studio is very user friendly, and we look forward to using it to enhance Dartmouth’s public profile.”
The ReadyCam video studio comes equipped with broadcast quality HD camera and lighting package, electronic backdrop, and IP-based transmission equipment that allows users to schedule and manage transmission feeds online using a web-friendly user interface. The studio can be remotely controlled by VideoLink professionals, eliminating any need for on-site video expertise.
“VideoLink has partnered with Dartmouth for more than a decade, enabling them to easily access media outlets around the world. Their enhanced ReadyCam studio eliminates the need to pre-schedule satellite up-link time thus enabling them to react immediately to requests for live TV interviews,” explains Rich Silton, VideoLink’s President & CEO. “The new ReadyCam system significantly reduces the cost of distribution because it utilizes our EnhancedIP™ network, which delivers HD video seamlessly over the internet.”
