HuskerVision Kicks Off an Enhanced Fan Experience with EVS
Systems integrator Alpha Video designed the system to meet HuskerVision’s desire for an unparalleled fan experience. “Between the capabilities of the XT3 and C-Cast, we can create and deliver content with context and give fans more ways to enjoy games,” said Jeff Volk, vice president, Alpha Video Sports. “With this workflow, fans will receive targeted informational content along with exclusive on-demand replays and game highlights on their own connected devices.”
Connecting on-site TV production infrastructure to a flexible, central cloud-based platform, C-Cast enables content owners like HuskerVision to aggregate content, enrich it, or instantly deliver it to any platform.
Based on EVS’ unique continuous recording loop technology, the XT3 seamlessly melds history, high-definition output, precise editing and the human touch into compelling storytelling. XT3 offers built-in proxies, live multi-angle review and an industry first: 12 live recording channel support.
“The XT3 and C-Cast workflow is helping stadiums increase attendance across multiple spectator sports by increasing fan engagement before, during and after games,” said Fred Garroy, SVP, The Americas, EVS. “Positive metrics point to increased fan interactions as well as increased revenue opportunities.”
An enhanced IPDirector media asset management suite provides complete production control, including on-the-fly editing and metadata management.
“HuskerVision was the nation’s first college football team to install instant replay boards two decades ago, so it’s only fitting that they’re the first to implement this advanced multimedia distribution capability,” added Volk. “They’re a trailblazer in college sports, and we’re thrilled to once again help them set the standard for what’s possible.”
