I am not a Skype fan. We have used "proper VoIP" for a long time, but it works.
But I am also not a fan of spending 90 minutes or so on train and taxi in to London to Millbank studios, being on-air for 4 minutes, and then spending as long getting home. So when Russia Today (RT, Sky channel 512) wanted me on TV and said maybe Skype, I tried it.
It works OK. But it is not that good quality and the sound even broke up.
So I am wondering if I should set up a studio. I have been on RT twice, Sky News several times, BBC a few times, so it may be worth tinkering. I should be able to set up a decent camera and some lights and a decent mic. The idea is that I could provide a web page with streaming live audio/video in HD and use a telephone call in earpiece as talkback.
I wonder if TV studios can handle that - I would think so if they can manage Skype.
I may have to put one of those big "ON-AIR" red lights outside the man-cave though :-)
