As we reported Wednesday, Fox News had some of the first live video on the air from the scene of the NYC plane crash, thanks to a cell phone held by a Fox photographer. Turns out it was a Treo running CometVision software, which is set up to broadcast live video and audio with a touch of a button — even automatically alert newsroom staffers with an email. The video was jumpy, of course, especially because of the cell phone congestion in the area. Fox News has used the set up before at the Amish school shooting, and the picture was cleaner. And as cell service technologies improve, you can bet this will be SOP gear for news crews in the next couple years.
