Hawk Sports Television

The Informer

HSTV is a student-run sports broadcasting organization specializing in live, remote shoots of University of Hartford athletics and became an official club in spring 2010. In the 2009-10 seasons, HSTV broadcast home games for men’s and women’s soccer, men’s basketball and lacrosse. The club also broadcasts some intramural events, such as the 7-on-7 flag football championship game, and did a broadcast of the Special Olympics held at the University of Hartford campus on May 8, 2010. The broadcast included the Opening Ceremony, swimming, soccer and awards ceremonies.

Typical broadcasts consist of four cameras, play-by-play announcing, color analysis and a sideline reporter. Additionally, each shoot requires behind-the-scenes positions including directing, producing, audio engineering, and many other positions necessary to a television production. Each broadcast airs live on the campus cable system on channel 19 and is streamed live over the internet at Technologically, broadcasts are made possible using a Sony Anycast portable switching station and a V-Brick, or digital encoder.
