Athletic Event Management veteran to provide NFHS Network with accurate scheduling data to automate its HS Athletics streaming service.
February 12, 2019 (Sandy, Utah) – ArbiterSports, the established leader in athletic event management, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with the National Federation of State High School Association Network (NFHS Network) to offer its high school game/match scheduling platform to improve the efficiency of its high school athletics streaming service. The NFHS streaming solution relies on high-end camera equipment that captures games/matches and streams the content without the need of a traditional cameraman or camera crew. The cameras simply turn on and off based on the game/match schedule they are programmed to, thus making the addition of ArbiterSports scheduling data so important.
“We are always looking at new applications for our products,” said ArbiterSports CEO Jeff Triplette. “With this new partnership, we are able to help the NFHS Network ensure that participating school’s games and matches are being captured and streamed on schedule.”
Traditionally, NFHS Network has relied on manual input of their broadcast schedules in order to coordinate the start times for events and ensure that the school’s designated cameras began recording. Now, for all schools using ArbiterSports’ scheduling platform, the entire process is automated with a single point of entry. Additionally, any changes to game/match schedules update on the NFHS Network scheduling system immediately, eliminating potential errors and ensuring that each scheduled game/match airs on the Network and is available to subscribers.
“Working with Arbiter is a game changer for NFHS Network,” said Mark Koski, CEO of the NFHS Network. “It eliminates the need for manual input of broadcast schedules while drastically improving scheduling accuracy. We are excited to experience the continued benefits as the number of participating schools continues to scale.”
Used by thousands of high schools throughout the US, ArbiterSports’ scheduling platform simplifies the process of entering game/match schedules, sharing them with other schools and coordinating game logistics. The new partnership with NFHS Network opens the door to many more schools already using the ArbiterSports platform to also begin broadcasting their high school athletic events on the NFHS Network.
