y'all ever watch TV news these days and wonder how they haven't figured out latency compensation yet

@ninjawedding I think it has to do with proprietary equipment, and the desire to have dedicated independent circuits, so they either use those long range transmission antennas you see on the tops of TV vans or satellite connections.

So you rarely see stuttering or video glitching, but it comes at the expense of latency? (I'm guessing?)

I should ask my friend who does local news station work.

@djsumdog oh, hmm, I didn't consider that that'd be a tradeoff. I'd find it interesting if that were indeed the case
