Modern network technologies offer new possibilities for the connection of mobile reporters, external teams and broadcast vans with the studios of the radio broadcasters. Journalists can transmit their contributions via mobile or DSL to the studio. LTE and WLAN hot spots offer video journalists the possibility to deliver their current contributions quickly and from wherever they may be. Thanks to the continuously increasing quality of the audio/video apps on mobile devices, mobile reporters have entirely new options.
The IRT conducted its own tests regarding the performance and quality of the various technologies for alternative methods of connection for mobile reporters/broadcast vans. Further studies dealt with the security of this connection via (telecommunication) networks. IRT provides consultation and support in the use of telecommunication networks for the connection of mobile teams as part of joint pilot installations and field tests, concise project planning and implementation, and with the impartial evaluation of already planned and applied usage scenarios.
