Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
Georgia State University and Skyview Networks announce today a partnership for radio broadcast solutions for Georgia State’s football, men’s and women’s basketball and team produced programming. Included in the partnership is Skyview Networks’ satellite distribution service and optional F.A.S.T. (Flexible Audio Storage Technology) Automation systems available to network affiliates. The partnership aims to increase broadcast reliability and to attract affiliates with the cost-effective Skyview platform.
"We are pleased to join with Skyview as we look to expand our affiliate network throughout the state and region," said Jerry Trickie, associate athletic director for strategic communications and public relations at Georgia State University Athletics. “This partnership offers an efficient distribution technology to help us reach more people at a time when our teams and department continue to grow.”
With Skyview, Georgia State has the resources to open its radio network to more stations by utilizing Skyview’s cost-effective wise-satellite receiver platform and offer stations play-by-play F.A.S.T. Automation systems. F.A.S.T. fully automates the game eliminating the added expense of a board operator.
“We are proud that Georgia State has chosen Skyview to partner on their broadcasts and to increase the reach of Panther Athletics in the southeast,” said Matt Stys, vice president new business development for Skyview Networks. “We look forward to building a lasting business partnership with the university.”
Skyview will begin distribution of Georgia State’s football broadcasts August 27, 2014. For more information on Georgia State’s athletic program and radio broadcast, please visit GeorgiaStateSports.com.
