Here’s a once-in-a-generation event, brought to you LIVE by The Center for Educational Media at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro. With MTSU’s unique location — directly in the path of the great solar eclipse — plus a wealth of scientific knowledge and commentary readily available, Great Tennessee Eclipse LIVE is a free, unique programming opportunity for your station.

MTSU is planning to enhance the eclipse viewing with:

  • — Experts, Videos and Slides provided by the MTSU Astronomy Dept.
  • — Live feed from NASA
  • — Live feed from MTSU’s observatory telescope

TelVue clients will be able to re-broadcast the MTSU live eclipse programming by mapping this RTMP url directly into your HyperCaster: rtmp://cp45648.live.edgefcs.net/live/T02275@84856
