SVG Webinar: Harvard, LiveU Explore How to Expand Your Footprint by Streaming Every Sport, March 18
Join us for the latest in the SVG Technology in Action Webinar series on Wednesday, March 18 at 2 p.m. ET, as we are joined by Imry Halevi, Assistant Director of Athletics, Multimedia and Production at Harvard University to share how Crimson Athletics are leveraging cellular bonding technology to expand its production capabilities, cover more sports, and increase fan engagement. Plus, get an inside look at how his team pulled off a completely unique live production of the Harvard alpine and nordic ski team’s inaugural Harvard Carnival that was streamed live to ESPN+.
These days, it has become commonplace for college athletic departments to live stream hundreds of their live sporting events each academic year. So, how does a school standout in such a crowded marketplace? Athletics such as rowing, track & field, volleyball, swimming, lacrosse, field hockey, and equestrian are largely untapped sports from a broadcasting standpoint and are often overlooked by live content producers due to limited resources and staff. Not to mention, these sports can prove to be exceptionally challenging to produce. Whether it’s a massive competitive field, multiple simultaneous events, or even connectivity issues at the venue, it can hard to properly tell the stories of these events in a live environment. But that challenge is getting easier.
