The live interview. It’s the most compelling aspect of a newscast, entertainment show, sporting event or webcast. Great remote guests will make your shows more engaging, but only when they look and sound as good as their perspective.

It used to take a lot of coordination, expense, and equipment to capture these conversations live with satellite feeds or microwave relays-or else it took piecing together a homegrown, desktop chat solution that left everyone wondering whether the call would hold up.

Now you can leave the satellite trucks, big budgets and duct tape behind, and be ready for a live shot with anyone-around the world, anytime-directly from your studio or live production.

NewTek TalkShow VS-100 is the studio-grade solution to immediately add live interviews, perspective, credibility, and distinct competitive advantage to your program by easily incorporating 300 million monthly connected Skype users as guest speakers without the expense and effort of a live shot. Any video-enabled Skype user is just a call away.
