Once an e-mail is opened, the recipient can immediately click on a freeze-frame video
image and instantly access the stream.
A five-meter dish with a 20-watt transmitter can cost as little as $80,000 and will handle a 10-kHz freeze-frame video channel and a simultaneous 5-kHz audio channel.
Freeze-frame video also works well with transportable equipment for all types of industrial or commercial problem solving.
Wayne Mullins of IBM's Communication Products Division, for example, explained how IBM organizers an annual conference for users of its 100-site freeze-frame video
Student or in-service employee training is also part of the educational potential for "freeze-frame video." Information that is required to be distributed from a central source to many locations can effectively use subcarrier.
The nationwide coverage provided by satellites, coupled with the small bandwidth requirements of freeze-frame video, make them a viable technology for the delivery of video information.
Freeze-frame video transmissions combined with audioconferences have proved to be invaluable in the cooperative efforts of professionals involved in restoring the Statue of Liberty.
among these is freeze-frame video teleconferencing, used for rapid visual problem-solving.
AT&T Communications' Alliance 2000 service, for example, is a public graphics service accommodating interactive writing devices and freeze-frame video at up to 59 locations.
Many of the new computer-based systems are also multifunctional, providing computer graphic displays and freeze-frame video images.
CIP also operates what's reported to be the world's largest freeze-frame video
of Chicago, Illinois, whose Discon 1000 audiographic teleconferencing system allows users to write directly on a freeze-frame video
image, with the markings transmitted live via dial-up telephone lines.
