The Valparaiso University athletic department will be streaming live on The Valley on ESPN3 for the first time this weekend following the completed build of the brand-new production control room. The first Valpo production on The Valley on ESPN3 comes this evening from the ARC, as the Crusader volleyball team hosts Loyola at 7 p.m.
The build required a complete overhaul of the department’s previous streaming infrastructure to meet the quality standards of The Valley and ESPN3. The process began shortly after Valparaiso University accepted the invitation to join the Missouri Valley Conference and wrapped up this week. All-new production equipment, monitors, cameras, replay capabilities and more were invested in and installed to raise the quality of the productions emanating from Valpo.
The upgrades allow all productions to be run through one master control room inside the ARC. Immediate streaming capabilities include events from the ARC and Brown Field, with plans to expand to the Valpo Softball Complex and Emory G. Bauer Field.
