Going live with video from the scene of a news event once required several people, a satellite truck and hundreds of pounds of equipment.
Now you can do it with nothing more than a smartphone enabled with the right app. Tools such as Periscope are transforming live news production. How can journalists use these tools to communicate with their audiences and augment their information streams?
Our panel will tackle these questions:
• What is Periscope, and how does it work?
• How are you currently using it? How do you imagine it being used?
• What are some of the pitfalls, dos and don’ts of these tools?
• What is their potential impact on the business of journalism?
