Live Convention Coverage

Posted by Sam Churchill on

Today Google is introducing the YouTube Elections Hub, a one-stop channel for key political moments from now through the upcoming U.S. election day on November 6. You can watch all of the live speeches from the floor of the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions, see Google+ Hangouts, and watch a live stream of the official Presidential and Vice Presidential debates. They’re here live.

In addition to videos from politicians and parties, a diverse range of news organizations—both established names in media and sought-after new voices—are sharing their coverage of the political process on the new hub. You’ll find live and on-demand reporting and analysis from ABC News, Al Jazeera English, BuzzFeed, Larry King, The New York Times, Phil DeFranco, Univision and the Wall Street Journal.

Both AT&T and Verizon are making significant investments around Tampa for the RNC.

Distributed Antenna Systems help carriers solve coverage and capacity challenges from large events taking place in indoor venues such as the Republican National Convention, August 27-30, 2012, and the Democratic National Convention, September 4-6, 2012.

Connectivity Wireless Solutions has expanded in-building wireless capacity at both convention sites. The Republican National Convention will gather in the Tampa Bay Times Forum while the Democratic National Convention will gather in the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina.

TE Connectivity says it has also deployed DAS at both the Democratic and Republican national conventions using FlexWave Prism, InterReach Spectrum, and InterReach Fusion will provide “gavel to gavel” 3G and 4G mobile coverage and capacity at these major events

At the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, a 4G wireless Distributed Antenna System was recently installed by Mobilitie at the Time Warner Cable Arena. Mobilitie installed 524 antennas (pdf) throughout the facility which will allow smart phones, tablets, and other devices to access the internet.
