The High School Football season has returned and MVCC has returned to its ten-week lineup. Two staff members are assisted by media students from Fairmont and West Carrollton High Schools. New this year to the operation is the ability to live stream the games to YouTube. The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has given the green light to live stream Friday night games, previously forbidden in recent years.
Live streaming on-location events have proved challenging, especially when acquiring internet could only happen via wifi or mobile hotspot; both of which handle minimal bandwidth resulting in lower video quality. MVCC has acquired a Cellular Bonding device that 'bonds' cellular signals from multiple towers to provide an extremely high amount of bandwidth. MVCC is thrilled to be able to use this device to live stream football games at full 1080p. The games can be viewed live on. They can be viewed later on the same channel under the playlist MVCC Game of the Week.
