State Broadcast News’s sister division, Professional Podcasts, livestreamed the February 4 Net Tuesday event produced by Philly Net Squared, featuring the topic, “Crowdsourcing Change: Applying the Social Web to Some Philly Nonprofits.”
Professional Podcasts used our new Roland V4-EX HD video switcher to manage a four-camera live production from the program. The event was held at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street.
