There’s no mistaking what Nic Dugger, president and owner of mobile production service provider TNDV, thinks about the future prospects of satellite contribution and uplink trucks.
They could be in the early phases of a fatal outcome at the hands of super-high-speed fiber-optic backbones in various cities and new cutting-edge streaming servers. Recently, TNDV produced a special edition of “Music City Roots” from Chattanooga, TN, that leveraged 500MB/s fiber-optic speed and an ultra-low-latency, high-performance streaming server called “LOLA.” Together, the technologies allowed TNDV to pull off a live musical set featuring performers in Chattanooga jamming with T Bone Burnett 2100mi away in Los Angeles.
In this podcast interview, Dugger talks about the setup and how tapping into the performance of fiber and super-fast streaming servers could, as he says, “be the death of the uplink truck.”
