The Sports Video Group and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics are pleased to announce that Brigham Young University is the recipient of the third-annual SVG/NACDA Technology Leadership Award.

The Technology Leadership Award is presented to the university athletic department that meets the outlined criteria of commitment to the investment in and execution of broadcast and video infrastructure and technologies.
“It’s a real honor for BYU to be selected as the recipient of the SVG/NACDA Technology Leadership Award,” said BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. “We are extremely grateful for our partnership with BYU Broadcasting. We appreciate the many dedicated and talented people in broadcasting, information technology and athletics who work closely together to create programing for our worldwide fan base that showcases the many talents of our student-athletes.”
The combined efforts of the BYU Athletic Department and the nationally prominent BYUtv have placed video and technology at the forefront on the university’s campus. From the live production of hundreds of sports events per year to top-of-the-line coaches video, BYU has established itself over the past two decades as a leader in college sports-video production.
“On behalf of the Brigham Young University Athletic Department, we are honored to receive the SVG/NACDA Technology Leadership Award,” says Chad Bunn, director of video operations, BYU Athletics. “We typically attempt to fly under the radar and make things happen that need to happen. Because of this, it is extremely gratifying, to be recognized for the progress we are making in this endeavor.”
“On behalf of the many talented professional and student sports-production specialists at BYU Broadcasting, we’re thrilled to be selected as the recipient of the SVG/NACDA Technology Leadership Award,” says Mikel Minor, senior coordinating producer, BYUtv Sports. “Nothing we create or broadcast would be possible without the instrumental support and forward-thinking mindset of our primary stakeholders: the university administration, our executive management, and, of course, the athletic program, which is the essence of the thrilling content we feature and present to BYU’s avid global fan base across our linear and digital platforms. We’re honored to receive this prestigious peer recognition for our achievements.”
