As many of you may know I teach a broadcast production class at Cimarron High School. We spend our time in class learning how to broadcast volleyball, basketball and select special events. This winter the broadcasting students have broadcast more than 20 games via our school’s Facebook page via Facebook Live.
Generally the productions go off without any major problems but one night we had a complete hardware meltdown and our Tricaster 425 Plus died. We were very lucky in that the Marketing Manager at Philmont Scout Ranch was willing to loan us his Sling production equipment so we could get on the air. Now it wouldn’t seem like being on the air is all that big a deal until you consider we have more than 50 people that regularly view our broadcasts and they can be found all over the United States, Europe and as far away as New Zealand.
I’m very proud of the production kids and all of the hard work they put in to getting us on the air for each Varsity game.
