Expert Resource Network
Welcome to Microspace’s EXPERT RESOURCE NETWORK, your source for quickly locating hundreds of qualified media trained experts who may be interviewed from university studios, most with fiber connections to our Raleigh teleport.
Contact Qualified Media Trained Experts
For your convenience you can link directly to each member university’s expert list by clicking on the link next to their listing. You can locate an expert by category within each link. Next, follow the booking procedure noted for each campus. Most universities require that media make initial contact with the university news offices.
Live Shot Connectivity for Interviews
Connectivity from the universities is made possible through our partnerships with Time Warner Cable and the Microelectronics Center of North Carolina, which owns and operates NCREN, a seamless statewide video network connecting most universities and many medical centers in the state. Among those participating are Duke University, Duke Medical Center, Elon University, North Carolina A&T, UNC-Chapel Hill, East Carolina University and The Brody School of Medicine, North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University and Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and UNC-Greensboro. Other university connections are pending at this time.
Setup an Interview
Once you have made necessary arrangements with the expert appropriate for your interview, call Microspace and provide us with the details of your live shot, including the transmission method. Your HD or SD content delivery options include LTN (IP), The Switch and Level 3/Vyvx for broadcast quality fiber or C or Ku band satellite. In the event a university studio is unavailable, our teleport offers a live shot studio which is in close proximity to several universities.
