Feb 11, 2008 (LBO) – Sri Lanka’s top mobile operator Dialog Telekom says its third generation network will be used to provide live newsfeeds for Sri Lanka’s Derana television service. “Reporting instantly from the location through 3G video calling reduces the time lag that is usually associated with unavoidable delays in transferring recorded material for transmission,” Dialog said in a statement.
Derana TV will have a team of correspondents quickly travel to a place where an incident takes place on motorcycles.
The feeds will be captured and transmitted with digital cameras and 3G handsets.
Dialog already provides text news with Derana.
