Quick Takes: Where would you install a remote-control video camera?

“We have one that we are using at The Worcester Telegram and Gazette. We have a couple of old systems at The Boston Globe, and at the Boston Museum of Science we’re installing two new cameras. It’s less expensive, and it’s very user-friendly.”
Charles Kravetz, VP/news director, New England Cable News, Newton, Mass.
“I would love to have a remote-control video camera. I would probably put it on the top of the Golden Gate to give me a wonderful pan of the city and the surrounding area.”
Jonathan Ruiz, news director, KSTS-TV (Tel.), San Jose, Calif.
“I would install it in Michael Eisner’s home to see if his kids watch Nickelodeon; Johnny Carson’s home to catch him doing monologues; Paul Shaffer’s home to watch him remove his bald cap; William Shatner’s home to hear him play his guitar and sing.”
Steve Howard, free-lance producer/ TV warm-up, Los Angeles
