Laurier and Conestoga Partner for Broadcast

WATERLOO – Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College have formed a partnership to video stream the Golden Hawks to the web in a professional quality broadcast run by students.

The School of Media and Design Broadcast Television Program will be bringing a mobile production unit to the Wilfrid Laurier Athletic Complex this Friday, November the 30th to cover the men’s and women’s basketball games as Laurier hosts the Laurentian Voyageurs.

“We’re excited to partner with a local post-secondary program to bring the Golden Hawk basketball program to friends, fans and family that can’t make it to the game,” stated Laurier Director of Athletics and Recreation, PETER BAXTER. “Our HawkCast website broadcasts will set the standard for digital media web-casting of university sport in Canada.”

The five-camera production unit, through the Broadcast Television Program will have a class of 20 Conestoga College students working in a variety of roles to develop the event. Student’s have been working over the past weeks in preparation for the event with several in attendance at this past weekend’s pair of doubleheaders.

“We’re taking our new digital mobile unit into the realm of streaming media,” commented Steve Parr, Coordinator of Broadcast Program at Conestoga. “This is a fantastic opportunity for the students to learn as digital media is the direction that television is headed.”

The production will be broadcast through the Golden Hawk website at as part of the HawkCast broadcasts that brought the 2007 men’s and women’s hockey championships to the web for viewers to see and will be archived for future viewings.
