QuickSPOT Delivers the Big Apple: In Five Minutes or Less!
All Mobile Video And On Call Communications
Team Up To Provide Time Sensitive HD Video Uplinks In Manhattan.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New York, New York and Foothill
Ranch, CA: All Mobile Video (AMV) and On
Call Communications announced a joint venture today to base an HD, IP based
satellite news gathering van out of AMV's location on 26th Street in
NYC. The joint venture will serve news and media
organizations delivering High Definition and Standard Definition video directly
to network studios or via All
Mobile Video's downlink at Gateway where it can be picked up on fiber
networks. News networks will be able to quickly
broadcast live from the scene of breaking New York stories due to several
advantages: the centrally located
Mid-town base is convenient for all of lower Manhattan, the SNG van is more
compact than traditional satellite uplink trucks making it more maneuverable in
crowded streets and the speedy, automated deployment of the QuickSPOTTM
portable satellite system puts crews on air within five minutes of arrival.
News stations need only send a reporter to the scene; the
service package includes satellite uplink van, HD/SD video encoder,
cameraperson/operator, IFB with Producer's line and Internet access. HD/SD
cameras and light kit are optional. Because
the ku satellite system is automated, networks will enjoy lower daily rates for
service as the savings are passed on to the news customers.
The new SNG vehicle is built around On Call's QuickSPOTTM IP based
satellite system. The system
provides a high quality HD or SD Video feed from the vehicle as well as a full
suite of mobile office functionality including voice lines, FTP, and Internet
On Call and All Mobile Video have already been working
together as On Call uses AMV's Gateway for QuickSPOT's East Coast point of presence out of the New
Jersey teleport and fibers feeds to the major POPs in New York City.

AMV 646-230-6996/917-299-0205 or our 24 hour TOC at 732-969-3191.
