SMT’s partnership with the Pac-12 Networks includes providing clock-and-score, ticker, virtual graphics and comprehensive data solutions for the networks’ more than 850 live sporting events and 12 conference championships annually.
SMT’s solutions for the Pac-12 Networks include:
SMT customized its systems to allow the PAC-12 the option of producing an event on-site or in their broadcast facility in San Francisco, adding the ability to quickly access and search for stats, scores and video content based on scoring information and to build highlight packages with relative ease and efficiency.
In the span of three months, SMT installed and programmed the necessary hardware at 14 locations (San Francisco broadcast headquarters, Denver data center and 12 member campuses) to support the launch, in turn alleviating the need for production trucks at every event, a cost-effective measure that maximizes efficiency.
Events are broadcast on the Pac-12 national network as well as six regional networks: Los Angeles, Bay Area, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and Mountain. In addition, the Pac-12 video site offers live feeds and on-demand viewing while the Pac-12 iPad app provides viewers with mobile devices the same content as the web site. The Pac-12 Networks broadcast every sport played by the Pac-12 programs with extensive coverage of women’s and men’s Olympic sports.
