ISC-TV to be Launched at Kitchener World Tournament


In mid-August, the International Softball Congress will holds its 60th annual ISC World Championship for Men’s fastball club teams, in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. As the “Grand-Daddy” of all softball tournaments held anywhere on the planet, the ISC will be celebrating this 2006 milestone in style.


Continuing the five year old tradition of streaming live audio to fastball fans around the world, the ISC will be taking a great leap forward at this year’s World Tournament. In continuing the commitment to providing live streaming media, the ISC has designed, tested, and  acquired, it’s own customized, 4 camera live wireless video production system, optimized for global webcasting of World Tournament action.


In partnership with streaming media services provider, the ISC will attempt to produce live, full-game streaming video coverage of 20 games from the 2006 ISC World Tournament. The Championship Game of the ISC II will also be webcast in live video lead by announcers Jim Flanagan and Blair Setford.


“In Kitchener, we will be ushering in an entirely new era for exposing the great sport of men’s fastball to a global audience”, said Dave Blackburn, the ISC’s Commissioner for Streaming and Broadcasting. “This innovative and affordable production system is both  powerful in it’s capabilities, and flexible in it’s design. Greg Panos of Sophistech Research did a magnificent job of sourcing out the components, and integrating the pieces of the puzzle into a working wireless webcast production system.”


The ISC will also be producing simultaneous “Audio Only” low bandwidth streams for those fastball fans who have only a dial-up connection to the internet. In order to see the videocast, viewers need only a broadband connection and the free Windows Media Player.


Although the Tournament begins on Friday Aug 11, that day will be reserved for setting up, testing, and practicing the live production system.
