The Pennant (Broadcasting)

The Pennant (Broadcasting)

The Pennant wanted to be able to broadcast live audio of the sporting events that they covered and capture high quality photos. I led them in this process from the initial purchase of the equipment to the actual training and use. For ease of use and automatic archiving of broadcasts Google Hangouts On Air was chosen, this enables the use of virtually any computer to broadcast the audio stream.

Here you can view an example of one of their first broadcasts.
