H.264 Encoder Helps Athletics Department Live Stream and Record Sports for Families, Fans and Coaches
Leaving home to go to university and adapting to student life are huge adjustments. For student athletes in particular, looking up at the stands and not seeing a familiar face can be disheartening. At the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas, the Sports Information team recognized that families and fans wanted to show their support despite the distance and found a way for everyone to watch games live and on demand.
The University of Dallas athletics program boasts 14 teams affiliated with the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA). Recently, the university added a Matrox Monarch HD encoder to their video production set-up and partnered with College TV Ticket, a webcasting service for NCAA sports, to live stream games. Now, viewers in state, out of state and around the world are able to view the majority of home events for baseball, softball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer and volleyball live online by subscribing to the service.
