Why only 8 minutes?

We’ve been uploading daily video feeds all the way from the eastern side of Chad. I’m still amazed that we can do it! So, why only send 8 minutes per day?

Well, a couple of reasons. Number one is money. The cost of uploading video files through a satellite modem is extremely high, especially for a group like ours, which is a network of volunteers. If we had the money, we would love to send more and better quality feeds. But, they would still not be extremely long pieces. We are recording hours per day, but we are in conditions that do not allow for long time in uploading files. We are going to even more extreme conditions, once we leave Abeche. We are definitely going to do a lot more with the material we are collecting when we get back.

Send your suggestions! :)
