The Monterey Institute recently installed a ReadyCam video broadcast studio in the McGowan building, enabling Monterey-based faculty and staff experts to connect with broadcast news organizations for live and pre-taped interviews at a moment’s notice.
Just a few days after the installation and testing of the equipment was completed, the studio was used to support the appearance of Dr. Jeffrey Lewis on PBS Newshour, where he offered commentary on the Iran nuclear agreement. The video segment was recorded live during the East Coast broadcast, with anchor Judy Woodruff interviewing Dr. Lewis while he sat in our on-campus studio on the third floor of the McGowan Building.
The ReadyCam® system uses Enhanced IP™ technology to transmit broadcast quality HD video over the Internet to anywhere around the world. To book a Monterey Institute expert for an interview or commentary, contact Jason Warburg or Eva Gudbergsdottir in the Institute’s Communications Office.
