AV Team Equips Six Venues With Monarch HD Appliances to Reliably Stream and Record up to 12 Hours Daily at the National Sporting Event
Saint Jean-Baptiste of La Salle, the patron saint of education, founded the Institute of Christian Brothers over 300 years ago in France. The Catholic teaching congregation can now be found in more than 80 countries. Today, Mexico is one of the nations with the institute’s largest presence, with Universidad La Salle situated on 15 campuses across the country.
Every November, the campuses come together for one of the largest events of the academic year: the National Sports Games of La Salle. The four-day event is akin to a mini Olympics, in which each school sends their very best to compete in basketball, soccer, taekwondo, chess, volleyball, and futsal.
In previous years, the games were a relatively isolated event; the host school would at times share some photographs or short clips after the event, but communities of the participating schools were not able to follow their teams’ progress throughout the competition. When Universidad La Salle’s Nezahualcóyotl campus was named the host for the next upcoming event, they wanted to provide full event coverage—including live streaming—so that fellow students, friends, and family members of the competitors could watch the games live for the first time.
