After a studio tour from our friends at a local Chevy dealership, we taped this weekend’s NewsOK TV segment and then another Skype interview with Rick Smith.
Smith is with the National Weather Service, in the Norman Forecast office. David Jones set up our video gear in Norman. I interviewed Smith from our OPUBCO Studios in north Oklahoma City. We’ve been testing various methods of Internet video streaming for months. Yesterday we taped our first talkback with the NWS and followed up today with an update on the colder air that will invade the state.
I hate winter. Just wanted that on the record.
Smith does a great job, very knowledgeable (of course) about his job and Oklahoma’s weather. I’m looking forward to the relationship between OPUBCO and the National Weather Service. Great to go straight to the source and have them tell us what’s going on and what they expect.
And Skype makes it easy. I think once we upgrade our streaming machine in the studio, we’ll have a better signal. And we’re already looking at the 720p stream.
