Viewing your favorite sports just got a lot easier at East Haven High School with new cameras that will be streaming sporting events via web browser, allowing fans to watch from the comfort of their home.
During this past summer, Athletic Direct Anthony Verderame and Principal Vincent DeNuzzo approved the installation of cameras with the ability to livestream sporting events in the school gym. This allows viewership of sports like basketball, volleyball, and wrestling. These sporting events will now be available to be streamed onto www.nfhsnetwork.com and can also be accessed through the app available for download on your phone.
The installation of the cameras will have a lot of usage from not only streaming the sporting events, but also recording the film for teams to use as a type of review.
“We wouldn’t have to worry about recording film. At least for home matches.” says assistant wrestling coach Mark Tolla.
With an implication of this type one might wonder if this will affect attendance at the games/meets. “There is always a concern of a loss of physical spectators which adds to climate of sporting events. However, with technology such as this it is not enough of concern to avoid promoting our programs and athletes in a new and emerging format,” said Mr. Verderame.
We can also take other schools into account when talking about these worries. Towns like Shelton, Hand and West Haven have the same system as do many other CIAC Schools. Like these schools, the link to our cameras will be on our schools’ athletic website.
Utilize these cameras by going onto www.nfhsnetwork.com on Friday, September 28 at 4:00pm to see the girls Volleyball team play against Branford High School.
