Hi everyone, this is Brooks Gray. I am an intern this semester at Focal Point Productions, underneath of Marty Jenoff. On February 11, 2018, Focal Point hosted the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) for their State Cup tournament draw. This was FPP's third year for producing this live webcast from our Owings Mills Maryland video production studio.
The live video was streamed to the MSYSA Facebook page, and had a peak of 83 concurrent viewers. By the next day, the video had more then 9.100 minutes viewed and 180 post engagements, making it a huge success.
I was in charge of the Facebook live comments. It was my first time running the system, but I ended up managing it to the best of my ability. Marty was working the TriCaster TC 1, which is a video switcher, recorder, and live streaming device. The TriCaster can also add titles, graphics, power point slides, and other elements to the program. Another intern, Greg, operated the teleprompter for the host. Ty, a crew member was the floor manager in the studio. Overall, everyone did a great job and we helped the MSYSA to assure everything ran smoothly.
