SAN ANTONIO, TX – August 5, 2015 — NewTek™ is pleased to congratulate the Florence High School Student Broadcast Team for its recent win at the inaugural NFHS Network Broadcast Academy in Atlanta, July 17-19. The team took home Best Live Sports Broadcast for NFHS Network from the 2014-2015 school year, and credits its success to the students’ passion and determination to learn, strong faculty leadership and the versatile NewTek TriCaster. The students were recognized for their work on an extensive live broadcast basketball semi-final game in which they used the TriCaster 460, and were judged on camera work, play by play and graphics.
The NFHS Network, the nation’s leading high school sports media company, hosted the unique, interactive event, which included talks from successful sports broadcasters and media executives, hands-on broadcast training workshops and the first annual NFHS Network Broadcast Academy Awards.
