Since the beginning of the Corona Virus Pandemic, many organizations have had to pivot hard to at working from home- this includes major television stations like ESPN. With the help of SimplyLive's ViBox and various other live streaming products, production is able to continue.
While most sports are on hiatus, ESPN has been broadcasting Korean Baseball as well as their program: "The Jump" during the pandemic. This is made possible with a variety of technologies, including the SimplyLive ViBox.
The ViBox is a complete production system perfect for sports broadcasting, with custom graphics, slow motion, score board capability and more. It is also a straight forward device, that is easy to use,
“We were tasked with coming up with a solution to help the company put shows back on-air without straining folks in Bristol that are already producing shows safely using [social distancing] and using resources that we already had available. We decided to leverage equipment and resources that were already at our Seaport [location], where we have a ViBox and an open studio available.”
