Portland, ME – The University of New England (UNE) has installed a VideoLink ReadyCam® broadcast studio on its campus to connect its faculty to the world’s television networks.

The ReadyCam simplifies the live TV appearance process and makes it easy for UNE experts to immediately participate in real-time TV interviews without leaving the premises.
