Minuteman Communications Hits the Road with Comrex ACCESS

Over the next 8 weeks, Minuteman Communications will be on the road. This is nothing new. For those of you who know Minutemann Communications, they are ALWAYS on the road. They produce remote broadcasts in New England for nearly every major station in nearly every major group in the Boston area. They're pretty cool people. If you don't know them, you can learn more at

But the next 8 weeks will be even more interesting than usual for Minuteman. They have become excited about the new Comrex ACCESS BRIC IP codec and the future of IP remote broadcasts. Minuteman will be adding the ACCESS to their large kit of remote broadcast tools and hitting the road. Many of their remotes over the next 8 weeks will be delivered using ACCESS. If you don't know about ACCESS, you probably should check it out. It is the way of the future. You can learn more at And if BRIC technology means nothing to you go to - We wrote the book and you can download it there or we'll send it to you.

Anyway, back to the blog. This blog will keep you informed about Minuteman's road trip as well as other ACCESS remotes. We will share the good, the bad and the ugly. The joys and the pains. The triumphs and the..... well, you get the idea! We will be pulling no punches. Broadcasters are learning together about what it means to depend on the public internet for live broadcasts. Stay tuned!
