Live Video at Trinity Streams Around the Globe

This semester, Trinity instituted new video streaming equipment and utilized a new web streaming platform to enhance the quality of coverage of live events at the College.  A significant donation not only allowed Trinity to invest in new, professional Webcasting equipment, but prompted the College to work with an industry-leading video streaming platform, providing more flexibility for presentation options and opportunities to expand in this area. The College will live stream select home athletic events through the platform, and has begun utilizing the service to live stream other key College events, such as Matriculation and select academic and cultural events.  All live video, and select archives, will be available for viewing at www.trincoll.edu/livevideo

The transition to improved Webcasts, which began last summer, is ongoing, and there will be a gradual, strategic implementation of changes in Webcasting production. Currently, Webcasts can be viewed online via computer screen. Eventually, the College would like to make it possible for Webcasts to be viewed via any mobile phone device.

“Our Webcasts are an important way passionate alumni and parents can follow our Bantam teams,” said Director of Athletics Mike Renwick. “In addition, we have many prospective students and other fans watching online.”

The gift was donated by the Duncan family, including Peter Duncan ’81, P’13, ’14, a former two-sport athlete at Trinity, who played lacrosse and ice hockey for the Bantams. Today, daughter Hadley Duncan ’13 is a two-sport athlete at Trinity. Watching Hadley score goals as an All-American field hockey player and All-American member of the National Champion lacrosse team (she led both teams in scoring), is a family priority. Hadley’s dad attends every game, and her mom, Chris Duncan P’13, ’14—who was a three-sport athlete in high school—is at most games. Hadley’s twin sister, Parrish, a Trinity junior, and younger brother, Peter—a high school senior “looking into” Trinity—often help to cheer her on, too.

Other family members, unable to attend in person, have relied on live Webcasts to watch Hadley and teammates in action. Chris Duncan explained, “My sister and my mother, who both recently died of cancer, were among Hadley’s most avid fans.  It was wonderful for all of us that they could follow and root for Hadley by watching games online, and this is what inspired us to make this particular gift to Trinity.”

Trinity Athletics Webcasts, filmed in high definition, are managed by the Sports Communications office, with students operating cameras and providing commentary. The College is committed to providing this service free of charge, making it as accessible as possible.  The live streams, as well as select archived Webcasts, will remain available for viewing “on demand” after events have concluded, through a viewing page at www.trincoll.edu/livevideo. Non-live, edited video will continue to be available at YouTube.com/trinitycollegect and YouTube.com/BantamSports.
