The Wayback View – Remote image transfer - 1944

Preview images from the video

Today's journalist brings a great deal of high technology to bear in getting the story out to the newswires. Digital photography allows images to be sent wirelessly via cellphone or computer uplink to satellites and then on to the news agencies for distribution. Surprisingly, in 1944 the process for a reporter at the Minnesota Star Journal and Tribune was not so different as this 2 minute long video shows.

Please press the play arrow to view the video. Note that it may stop for a moment while the video buffers in the background.
