SPONSORS FOR LIVE REMOTES

Technical guidelines.

  • We require electricity and a desk or table suitable for at least two people.

Power.

  • The power receptacle must be 110VAC
  • grounded
  • should be able to deliver at least 10A
  • It must be located within 4 feet of the broadcast table.
  • It must not be on a share circuit with any large appliances – refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, large electric motors, washing machines, laser printers or any device that will cause significant power disruption.
  • Power from generators is iffy at best.
  • Extension cords are OK provided that they are 3-prong GROUNDED power cords.

Communications.

  • High speed Internet connection (wifi is also OK) is required.

Time/Schedule.

We usually like to visit the broadcast site the day before the show to ensure that technical requirements are met. Next, we will arrive at the broadcast site between 30 and 60 minutes prior to broadcast time and we will set up the show equipment.

Depending on the type of remote, we will link up to our studio by 15 minutes prior and we will stay continually connected until at least 5 minutes after.

It is up to the sponsor to ensure that these technical requirements are met BEFORE we arrive to set up the show. 30 minutes prior to broadcast time is TOO LATE to rectify problems. We reserve the right to NOT do the broadcast if these conditions are not satisfactory. You will be charged anyway.
