Warriors-Patriots game to be broadcast over internet

The Wyoming Area-Pittston Area football game will be broadcast live over the Internet through the web site www.wyomingareafootball.org. Both audio and video will be broadcast.

This will be the fourth Warrior game of the season that will be broadcast live over the Internet. This year’s broadcast experiment has been well-received by fans, relatives, and former players who are unable to attend games in person. In particular, viewers from out of town have taken advantage of the service. For example, one player’s relatives in Tennessee have been able to watch the games. Many former Warrior football players, who are currently attending college out of town, also have tuned in.

Although there have been a few glitches, the audio and video quality of the broadcast has been surprisingly good. There is a “chat” mechanism built in the system that allows viewers to interact with the announcers and with each other. Individuals may also view the broadcast from an archive file. Nick Perugini, Sean Carroll, Ron Musto, and Temple student Anthony Bellino, have shared in the announcing duties. Students from the Wyoming Area Audio-Visual Club serve as cameramen.

Although the game will be broadcast by WNEP, a large out-of-town audience is expected to tune into the Internet broadcast. Typically, 200-300 people click in to view some portion of the game .A steady audience of about 80 people has been observed.

The pre-game show will start at 6:30 pm on Friday night. Go to www.wyomingareafootball.org. to view the broadcast.
