VideoLink Announces Studio Expansion to the West Coast and Partnership with On Call Communications
Television, business and sports networks now have access to experts from VideoLink’s live broadcast studio facilities just outside of Irvine, CA. This studio is VideoLink’s first west coast expansion.
VideoLink has teamed with On Call Communications to build this broadcast studio, located at On Call Communications’ headquarters in Foothill Ranch, CA. VideoLink and On Call Communications will provide the ability to originate and transmit live video feeds to any broadcast network and around the world via a fiber optic link to The Switch in Los Angeles or via satellite. Experts, celebrities and newsmakers in the area no longer have to drive to Los Angeles or San Diego to reach a broadcast studio. Foothill Ranch is located about 50 miles south of LA and about 90 miles north of San Diego.
“Partnering with On Call has provided us with a great opportunity to bring our capabilities to the west coast” said Howard Miller VideoLink’s President. “On Call not only provides our customers a convenient studio location but with a company that is already providing a dependable, high level of broadcast transmission services”.
University experts, medical professionals, CEOs, religious leaders, financial analysts and newsmakers will now have convenient access to a national audience. No longer will guests have to turn down interviews because they are too far from Los Angeles or San Diego. Customers will also have the ability to use the studio for teleconferencing, webcasting, and producing videos.
Jim Gilbert, On Call’s CEO explains, “the studio is a great opportunity to expand our services from in the field satellite news gathering to studio based production. Our experience in both satellite and fiber transmissions combined with VideoLink’s production experience offer our clients tremendous flexibility to produce top notch interviews and distribute the video around the world. ”
