History of WeatherVision
WeatherVision- The Teleport in Jackson, Mississippi accomplished two things within the context of modern broadcasting. The first was to produce local TV weather from a remote studio for a local station anywhere in the country, then satellite uplink that weathercast to the station daily, a pioneering achievement in 1990.
The Jackson Teleport is a by-product of the weather project, the satellite uplink was the first public-private general use Teleport in Mississippi. To the national media it became the “Jackson Teleport”, thus opening up comprehensive coverage from Mississippi’s state capitol for the first time on an ad-hoc basis. FOX, NBC, CNN, CBS and ABC all became customers and still are today. The Jackson Teleport started as an analog Ku satellite uplink and transitioned to digital then finally to the fiber used today for live studio transmissions from Jackson to all national media.
