Chattanooga State’s media students took live streaming to the next level as they simulcast the Chattanooga State’s boys and girls basketball game vs Volunteer State on Youtube and WAWL. Students from the sports broadcasting class provided the talent who provided play by play and game recap after each half.
The base of operation for production was located in a conference room across from the gymnasium it was quit the impressive setup. In the control room you had your director, audio, and stream engineer which was my job for the evening.
Out on the gym floor we had our camera operators who captured some amazing camera shots through out the game. Props to the guys running the hand held cameras on the floor because those cameras get heavy.
Overall the live stream simulcast went well and we had many encouraging comments from viewers asking us to live cast more basketball games. Even the refs wanted to know the link to the live stream to share with their family and friends. Media students are excited and can not wait till the next opportunity to live cast again.
