How To Produce a College Basketball Broadcast for ESPN3
College sports television is undergoing a content boom, and ESPN’s burgeoning digital platform, ESPN3, has become the home to a wealth of live games in all types of sports. Looking to increase the quality of the broadcasts, ESPN3 is partnering with schools across the country to replicate its on-air look on games produced by production teams within athletic departments.
In January, St. John’s STJ-TV opened its doors to Sports Video Group during a broadcast of a women’s basketball game between the Red Storm and Syracuse at Carnesecca Arena in Queens, NY. The game was streamed live to ESPN3 and made available to millions of viewers across the country utilizing gear from NewTek, Ross Video, Chyron, and Canon and with the work of freelance professionals and St. John’s students.
