Indiaâ€™s Sahara TV used Beehive Systemsâ€™ laptop-based newsgathering solution to send exclusive video coverage of the 2004 U.S. presidential election for its news special â€śVote America.â€ť
The 30-minute show, which aired election week, featured footage from the election. The network used the vidâ€™linkMOBILE laptop newsgathering system to transfer between 30 and 40 video feeds over non-conventional media, such as a dial up Internet connection.
The vidâ€™linkMOBILE codec performs video compression that maintains image quality. Sahara TVâ€™s use of the vidâ€™linkMOBILE system saved the network nearly 80 percent of the cost of transferring video via traditional media, such as satellites.
