Full Sail University in Florida equips sportcaster students with TVU Networks’ kit
TVU Networks has announced its collaboration with Florida, US-based Full Sail University, an award-winning educational leader for those pursuing degrees in entertainment, media, arts and technology. Full Sail’s Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting decided to integrate a number of TVU solutions into its curriculum in keeping with the university’s mission to provide students with real world experience.
Full Sail University’s Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting offers a Bachelor’s degree programme created in partnership with the Emmy award-winning sportscaster and radio personality Dan Patrick. The curricula of the programme is designed with the primary focus of preparing the next generation of sportscasting talent by embracing storytelling and applying modern-day content creation techniques through real world, hands-on educational experiences. After thorough testing, the programme selected TVU solutions in tandem with its curriculum.
Students within the degree programme are equipped with TVU One, the mobile live video transmitter using patented technology to deliver high quality, low latency feeds, and TVU Anywhere, the mobile app turning smart devices into professional live video transmitters. The students will use the TVU transmitters in the field to capture ‘live shots’ while sending video feeds back to the in-house TVU transceiver for sportscasting productions and streaming.
“These TVU solutions were incredibly flexible and easy to use, which made for a smooth learning process for our students,” said Gus Ramsey, programme director of Full Sail University’s Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting. “By setting up and using this equipment in a true-to-life way, the students were able to understand how these tools worked and can apply the classroom curriculum to real life scenarios.”
“We’re honoured Full Sail University selected TVU and our solutions are contributing to the education of future sportscasters,” said Kyle Luther, VP of Sales, North America, TVU Networks. “Our equipment has been successfully used for daily coverage by some of the largest sports and news broadcasters in the world.”
