VCC & NEWS
Gain Access Wherever the Story is
You never know where news is going to break, and you cannot put crews everywhere, but there are 3.2 billion smartphones in the world – so let the story come to you. Whether it’s a protest with a sniper in Texas or a super Typhoon in Taiwan, you can now get to the story wherever it is breaking.
The Video Call Center provides you the options and accessibility you need, with no incremental satellite or bandwidth costs, while providing the editorial control you require.
The VCC let’s you aggregate and connect video callers and experts from all over the world directly into your existing control rooms, or to produce new forms of news programming without a control room at all.
Reduce the hurdles to bringing key guests onto a program by alleviating the need to travel, have specialty equipment, or a Skype (or similar) account. VCC’s Caller Cloud™ service allows talent & producers to access the most relevant and high caliber contributors, while requiring only the contributor’s time and very minimal effort.
Connect with leading influencers and experts, wherever they are while the play is underway. The Video Call Center expands your access and your options. Chat with an expert statistician from his office, a doctor who treated a similar injury to one on the pitch, a relative of a successful player, or fans celebrating in the goal scorer’s home town – you can now be there – at no incremental cost. Expand your coverage outside the playing field by leveraging laptops and smartphones to bring in your remotes. (Detroit Tigers, Houston Texans)
