Notre Dame Chooses Telestream for Game Highlights
Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish Digital Media (FIDM), a digital production and post facility on the university’s campus, has selected Telestream products for a faster, more efficient video workflow. Telestream’s Pipeline HD network video capture solution helps streamline the creation of game highlights and other video clips for the Notre Dame Athletics YouTube channel and web site.
During televised sporting events, FIDM brings in the live HD-SDI program feed from the network’s nearby broadcast truck over a fiber link into one of the eight channels of its Telestream Pipeline HD Dual. Pipeline captures the live HD video as Apple ProRes files—the house file format—directly into the facility’s SAN for FIDM’s Apple Final Cut Pro editors to edit.
Scott Rinehart, FIDM’s lead technologist, explains, “While the content is being ingested, our editors can begin editing the feed immediately at the kick-off, which saves us tons of time. With Telestream, we’re now able to post game highlights just 20 minutes after the event.”
