August 25, 2015 — Georgetown University has renewed its live streaming and broadcast relationship with Synthesis Multimedia Productions, confirming the fourth consecutive year of a partnership that has helped the Hoyas’ athletic department broadcast its sports live to the web.
“We choose Synthesis to enhance our streaming capabilities for guhoyas.com as they provide excellent service to Hoya Fans,” said Dan O’Neil, Senior Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs. “The overall partnership between Georgetown Athletics and Synthesis has been a win for the Hoyas. ”
As a contractor to Georgetown, Synthesis Multimedia produces live sporting events, including the Hoyas’ home football games that can be viewed live this season in a new relationship with The Patriot League Network and CampusInsiders.com.
“Forming this relationship with the Patriot League Network is a positive step for the Georgetown University football program,” O’Neil said. “This platform gives the families of our student-athletes, as well as our alums and fans free weekly access to our games with a high-speed internet connection.”
When Synthesis first formed the partnership with Georgetown more than four years ago, the university was streaming its own sporting events; however, the relationship with Synthesis allowed the school to add a higher level broadcast product.
This season, the Hoyas’ football games will feature a robust production package, including up to seven HD camera angles, instant replay, live clock, graphics, a play by play voice, color analyst, sideline reporters and a crew of 15 people — a turn-key solution provided by Synthesis Multimedia, which handles all the equipment, on-site tech, pregame production and staffing for all broadcasts.
Synthesis Multimedia will also broadcast the nationally ranked mens’ and women’s’ soccer games live from Shaw Field.
“In this partnership, our company provides all the staff and equipment for each broadcast, allowing the university — or in this case, the client, — to simply click “play” on game day,” said B.J. Koubaroulis, CEO at Synthesis Multimedia. “We have helped our friends on the Hilltop improve their level of broadcasts and, in turn, the viewers — a strong alumni network — now have high expectations of our work. We intend to continue to deliver on our promise of high quality broadcasting at an affordable cost.”
