Television news broadcasts are increasingly leveraging telepresence and video conferencing systems and services to provide real-time coverage of the latest events. In the past two years, hologram technology placed news correspondents, specialists and other experts in the news room allowing them to report from events such as the 2008 Barack Obama election night in Chicago, Illinois. These reporters however, appear standing side by side with the main news anchors as if they are in the same room.

Recently, major sporting events have been the focus for telepresence and video conferencing vendors and services. ESPN used Cisco TelePresence to provide live and recorded coverage and interviews with players and coaches of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Glowpoint, who provided video conferencing services for the NFL draft broadcasts, was recently chosen to provide two way HD video conferencing for the NBA basketball draft. According to Glowpoint, “The solution will enable NBA team officials, players, leading sports analysts and broadcasters to participate in real-time, 720p HD video interviews without the cost and technical challenges associated with traditional satellite signals.”

CEO Bob McCandless of BrightCom, the performance leader in integrated telepresence and video conferencing solutions, sees a very big future for telepresence and video conferencing in television journalism.

“Glowpoint and Cisco are doing a phenomenal job at driving television broadcasts into the future of communication,” said Mr. McCandless. “What will take broadcasting further is real-time video paired with the live interaction of data.”

Today, CNN uses highly visual, interactive, touch screen panels to present documents, images, video clips and live video feeds that “allow the user to manipulate graphic elements around one wall and have another with Perceptive Pixel software that allows the on-screen talent to expand an image with their fingers (which CNN pioneered on-air for the 2004 presidential elections).”

“BrightCom’s telepresence infrastructure, the Visual Collaboration System, can pave a new way into broadcasting allowing users in the studio to connect to people around the world and cooperatively interact with images, documents, video clips during their live HD broadcasts,” continued Mr. McCandless. “In the processor-based conferencing infrastructure, data is downloaded and manipulated from its native format, unlike the traditional MCU based systems that use H.239 to stream data as video, locking it from editing and interaction. The VCS enables users to do so much more with the data in a real-time video broadcast. For example during a sporting event or interview, data such as player statistics, previous team history and video clips from past games could be highlighted throughout the broadcast making it more of an interactive experience for both the anchor and the viewer at home.”

The Visual Collaboration System is a software based, processor driven, conferencing infrastructure that combines multiple functionalities of telepresence and video conferencing meeting administration, scheduling, NAT/firewall traversal and security with a complete set of web conferencing features in a single server, unlike other vendors who offer these functions in multiple servers and software packages.

Participants using BrightCom or SIP enabled telepresence suites, video conferencing rooms, video conferencing mobile carts, desktop video conferencing, or web cameras on desktops, laptops or other mobile devices from remote locations connecting over the Internet can connect to the VCS to conduct scheduled or spontaneous meetings. The VCS integrates the video, and audio broadcasts with a full set of web conferencing capabilities such remote control, cooperative markup and data sharing of documents, images and video clips.
