JDM set to stream NCAA D-II Women's Regional Final Game

For the second year in a row JDM will cover NCAA march madness on our own campus as the D-II Women's Midwest Regional Final game will again be hosted by the Lady Eagles on Monday, March 18th at 7pm in Kates Gym. In this year's final, AU hosts Wayne St. on their quest to return to the Elite-8 in San Antonio and play for a national championship.

This year's broadcast will feature the all-star JDM faculty announcing team of Professor Steve Suess, WRDL's radio advisor handling play-by-play duties and Collegian advisor Professor Matt Tullis, who worked last December's football game, as color analyst.

"Last year JDM paid a rights fee and tape-delayed the broadcast for AUTV-20. It was a great experience for our students but very cost prohibitive," said JDM TV Advisor, Tim McCarty.

"This year - like last semester's playoff football game - our department decided to stream the game live on Mediasite. For our program to produce a non-commercial show and deliver via streaming, the NCAA waived the rights fee," McCarty said.

JDM will produce Monday night's game exactly like the four SportTime Ohio broadcasts produced this year with JDM students manning the technical positions and a local remote production company, S-and-S Productions, providing the TV Truck.

"Our relationships with professional production companies like S-and-S, who specialize in live remote sports production, is what allows us to offer unique 'value added' experiences for JDM majors," said McCarty.

"A 5-camera, 2-replay sports production with two announcers, over 100 pre-built graphics, slo-motion replays and 10 channels of audio is an extremely difficult technical achievement for the pros, much less a college media program," said McCarty, himself a veteran of over 2,000 sports remote productions.

McCarty added, "But no matter how high we set the bar on these type of productions, our majors always exceed it. Look for a great show Monday!"

DON'T FORGET: If you can't watch the game online you can follow all the action live on Twitter @AshlandJDM and @matttullis. (He'll be talking and typing at the same time!)
