By using TVU Grid’s bi-directional feature, WGAL was able to provide studio capabilities to Calhoun to deliver the weather forecast as if he were live in the studio. The station set up a green screen with graphics and pushed it from master control to Calhoun’s home for presentation while providing video content from his home back to the studio. All of this was accomplished with HD video and low-latency using TVU Grid.
