Broadcasting Live Video From a Cell Phone

Lost Remote TV Blog:
"Fox News had some of the first live video on the air from the scene of the NYC plane crash, thanks to a cell phone held by a Fox photographer. Turns out it was a Treo running CometVision software, which is set up to broadcast live video and audio with a touch of a button — even automatically alert newsroom staffers with an email."
The future is here.

Funny how just a few months ago I was imagining a future where you could post video to a blog from a cell phone. Now you can do that with a Nokia N93 and thier Lifeblog application. [I'm still waiting for TypePad to get this to work for me]

Then at VON I saw a company, TiVi, who was developing live streaming to a web page via a cell phone. Now Fox is broadcasting a live stream on TV from a cell phone.

Live is the new black in video over cell phones.
