The title of this blog is not an event that's causing chaos in the greater Piedmont Triad, it's the name of a new, yellow, not a taxi-cab, news gathering beast. See Picture now.
The Toyota FJ belongs to WTVD ABC 11 in Durham and we got a sneek peak here in High Point as Ron Wick was headed back to Durham after getting a fresh new set of decals here in town.
The vehicle is equipped with a police/fire scanner, two dash mounted lipstick cameras, microphones, a switcher and other accessories to enable Televsion broadcasting.
The lipstick cameras are mounted on the dash, one forward looking, one facing the passenger seat. They are switchable on the fly and a microphone is hooked inline and it all feeds to a laptop computer that can feed the video and audio via a wireless broadband internet connection.
I don't know if the photogs at WTVD are lining up to be the first to go live at 70 MPH, but it does sound interesting to me, but I'm a classic AV geek. :)
The ICEE is not included in the standard package.
