Nashua Telegraph experimenting with Qik

May 12th, 2008Posted by in Mobile, Multimedia, Newspapers

The Nashua Telegraph is experimenting with live video from mobile phones on its website using streaming service Qik.

The Telegraph is using the tool to stream footage from N95 handsets to provide behind-the-scenes coverage of its online food show, The Doorbell Gourmet.

Qik’s popularity with publishers seems to be growing – last month the Sacramento Bee used the service to create a broadcast channel for reporters to cover protests over the Olympic torch relay.

Here’s Journalism.co.uk’s interview with Qik founder Bhaskar Roy.

UPDATE - The Telegraph has posted its first ever breaking news coverage using Qik.

Live footage of a police evacuating residents was captured using mobiles and streamed to the site using the service.
