Share Article

The Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network, or MSBN, has selected technology from Meridix Creative, Inc. to run its network of live broadcasts throughout the State of Minnesota. The Meridix Broadcast System will provide the MSBN with tools that allow the organization to feature live real-time scoring, live audio, statistics, event syndication, and automatic archiving with each broadcast. The MSBN has already aired nearly 100 games, offering coverage from around the Lake and Suburban East Conferences, with plans to expand to additional conferences and schools.

Meridix Creative, Inc. says it has finalized an agreement with the Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network (MSBN) to provide the organization with the latest internet broadcasting and scoring technology and support. The agreement will allow the MSBN to offer live audio, live scoring, real time data, syndication, and audio archives for every sporting event it covers. The MSBN also will be able to use Meridix tools to create game summaries, publish newsfeeds, upload schedules, highlight recent events, and automatically display scores from around the league.

Along with the partnership announcement with the MSBN, Meridix announced plans to increase spending on new infrastructure and increased capacity. Although the changes will be phased-in during the next few weeks, customers have seen new Meridix technology in their accounts, and broadcasts have already experienced greater connection stability. The company noted that the listener side will also be improved soon, incorporating fully redesigned listener pages and event windows.

The Minnesota Sports Broadcast Network was started in 2005 by the group's founder, Mr. Jon Wekkin. Growing from just three initial broadcasters, the team now includes broadcasters from Brown College, the University of Minnesota, minor-league teams, and other sources. Broadcasting sports throughout the entire year, the MSBN has now aired nearly 100 different broadcasts, mainly covering prep sports in the Suburban East and Lake Conferences near Minneapolis. The MSBN has also aired other sporting events, including the 2006 Minnesota Amateur State Baseball Tournament and games of the MSHSL 2006 State Basketball Finals. The MSBN's website, which features live broadcasts and recent results, can be found at http://www.MNSportsNetwork.com.

The current schools covered by the MSBN include Burnsville High School, Park High School, Woodbury High School, Forest Lake High School, Lakeville North High School, Lakeville South High School, Apple Valley High School, Eastview High School, Rosemount High School, Cretin Derham Hall High School, and Eagan High School, along with White Bear Lake High School, Bloomington Jefferson High School, Bloomington Kennedy High School, Chaska High School, Eden Prairie High School, Hastings High School, Mounds View High School, Roseville High School, and Stillwater High School.

The MSBN has been happy with its initial success, drawing thousands of unique visits to its live and archived broadcasts each month. However, the organization continues to expand and plans to cover additional conferences and cities in the near future.
