Producing content on the road is no easy task for any college athletics program with a lean staff and budget.
For Auburn University, the mounting costs associated with sending large production crews onsite and the timeliness of getting content back to the home studio proved problematic. Adding LiveU to the crew’s toolkit changed the content game for the school.
Using two LiveU LU600 portable transmission units with the Store and Forward feature, camera operators have the flexibility to either stream live content directly back to the studio or send a video file back to the studio for the weekly ESPN-branded show.
"Our weekly show had to be ready by 7 a.m. on Sunday, but many of the football and basketball games wecovered didn’t end until late Saturday evening. It was hard to get the content to the studio on time while thecamera operators and editors were heading to the airport”Weston Carter, Director of Video Services, Media
