A television station in Idaho Falls, ID (pop. 57,000) is using a relatively low-cost system that allows it to transmit live coverage of local news events via the Internet. As reported by Corey Bergman on his Lost Remote blog, station KIFI-TV uses a technology called WiNG (Wireless Internet News Gathering) that allows it to provide "near broadcast quality" coverage without incurring the costs of remote equipment used in major markets. The technology, station GM Mark Danielson told Bergman, "is simple and dependable for our staff to use."
