Bottling the Brilliance of Storytelling in Video for the New Content Economy
November 08, 2016 by Chuck Baker
The University of Colorado Buffaloes (CU) sports production group, BuffVision, drew the lead when the Pac-12 Conference determined to begin live-streaming sports coverage via Twitter. Pac-12 struck a deal with Twitter to stream nine games this year and kicked off the package with a women’s soccer match between CU and Oregon on October 6, 2016. “It was a real honor for us,” says Eric Pelloni, assistant director of BuffVision at the University of Colorado. “We took it very seriously and made sure that we had our A-Team working the show.”
The production suite for the game consisted of three manned cameras feeding into a NewTek TriCaster production switcher and a NewTek 3Play for replay, with a branding assist from the Pac-12 in the form of a customized TV Graphics All-In-One laptop-based graphics solution, which is NewTek NDI-enabled and set up to deliver a universal scorebug, lower-thirds, wipes, and other graphics in Pac-12 Plus branding.
