Technical Difficulties

In the technical world that we live in today, we are always subject to technical difficulties. It seems like everywhere we turn, we are always running into technical problems.

One field that knows its share of technical issues is the journalism field. With all of the bells and whistles that go into journalism, something is bound to go wrong.

Eagle Eye learned this the hard way.

About a week ago, the device that is responsible for saving all of our videos, better known as the Tricaster; broke. This device is also important for making graphics appear during the show.

As if this weren’t enough, our Terrabyte system failed. For all of you technological savvy individuals, I’m sure you can imagine how tough this is.

But, just like reliable postal carriers, the Eagle Eye crew pushed on.

The crew did all of the painstaking things to make sure that show went on.

Rolling with the punches is something that must be done in the journalism field. That’s why we love it so much. Each day is different than the previous day.
