A New Way To Do TV Live Shots

Something Jim Rome touts on his nationally-syndicated sports talk show may end up being the successor to TV live shots produced with expensive satellite and electronic news gathering (ENG) trucks.

The "Slingbox" allows you to watch TV remotely using a laptop or smart phone. But now, a San Francisco TV station is using the $300 device to deliver live news, traffic and weather updates wirelessly back to its studio.

According to a story on Cnet.com, a smaller camera, a Slingbox and a data card (combined approximate cost: $900) could potentially change the way broadcast TV news does business.

(Thanks to Mike James of Newsblues.com for first bringing attention to this story.)
