GEORGIA – October 16, 2017 – University of Georgia’s (UGA) Athens campus adds VideoLink ReadyCam® Studio for live TV interviews to raise the visibility of its faculty experts.

The ReadyCam provides UGA with broadcast-quality video for live and recorded media interviews and facilitates other video productions.

Fully equipped with an HD camera, broadcast-quality audio and lighting, an electronic backdrop and IP-based transmission, the in-house broadcast studio is operated by engineers at one of several VideoLink operations centers remotely, eliminating the need for UGA to have technicians on-site.
