Reporting snow depth on NECN Live using a cellphone via Qik via Mogulus

Here's a recording of going live on NECN via Qik via Mogulus.

This is a recording of Ted McEnroe of NECN tossing to me Live in Boston on my Nokia N95 via Qik via Mogulus for a report on snowfall accumulations. This was broadcast live on cable TV.

I had my yardstick ready.

It all worked. You could even hear my audio.

Here's the Qik version.

Watch the behind the scenes.

This is very cool. You can see me getting ready to go live on New England Cable News via Qik via Mogulus. Watch the recording of what went on TV. Thanks to Carol for being my camera person and director. Excellent job.

As you can see in the video, the delay wasn't five minutes like I said, but it turned out to be a very slight delay.

Qik version

I'm very excited to show that we have the technology in place for citizen reporters to do live shots via the web to TV. It's only going to get better.
