Uplink Services

In addition to the video and production services we provide as an NPR and PBS affiliate, WGCU in conjunction with Florida Gulf Coast University is proud to announce that we now have available an LTN system that will allow us to provide the equivalent of a satellite uplink to national news outlets from our studios at WGCU on the FGCU campus. Instead of satellite, though, this system transmits video digitally through a private network.
Video interviews can be coordinated through LTN Global Communications’ Smartcloud IP video transport service, which provides regular high-quality video transport connections to most major broadcast networks.
The studio transmits a 1080i, high-definition signal using technology from LTN Global Communications. Other features that will help you reach a global audience with high-quality audio from WGCU’s Gulf Coast Studios:
  • Full HD camera

  • Single camera capability

  • Sony lavalier microphones

  • Controlled environment for video interviews

  • Green room (Makeup services available for additional fee.
