News 10 is launching a new tool at the WTHI-TV station Thursday – it’s what we call a ‘live backpack unit!’
It is basically a satellite truck put inside a backpack making it compact and easy to carry. It allows us to go ‘live’ from just about anywhere!
The only catch would be the fact that there has to be cell phone service because this tool allows us to stream ‘live’ video over the web using high speed wireless networks.
