In the wake of Covid-19, many schools and sports organizations had to stop production on their live sports streaming. In much the same way, many major schools are returning again to live sports production, with workflows that are better than ever featuring the NewTek TriCaster, and some other great streaming gear.
At Princeton university, the first return broadcast occurred only recently, with a women's soccer game for ESPN+. This was done from a control room with a NewTek 3Play and a TriCaster TC1.
“It just feels normal again. While the pandemic is still very much a part of our daily lives, we’re talking about the things that we love and that we love to do. You can feel the energy on our campuses again. It’s why we do what we do. [We] couldn’t be more excited to get back.”
-Matt Panto, associate executive director, strategic communications and external relations, Ivy League
Harvard athletics recently returned to action as well, with a soccer game on August 27th. The team at Harvard says they used the downtime to reevaluate their equipment needs, sharpen their broadcast goals, and explore what might still be possible, that they have not yet done.
