With dish, delegates can keep in touch

LAS VEGAS -- A Caesars Palace satellite dish beams conference events to delegates' home offices for instant TV replay.

The resort's ability to uplink action via satellite allows immediate distribution of important conference events, such as press conferences and announcements.

In turn, feedback from corporate executives may be downlinked at the convention site.

An internal system of signals can relay TV sports and other broadcasts to any meeting area.

Meeting groups have high-speed access to the Internet via T1 lines and may transmit radio interview broadcasts over ISDN lines.

Caesars' convention facilities feature wireless microphones; audio mixing boards and recording equipment; audiovisual and computer link capabilities, and teleprompters.
