LEXINGTON, Ky. (August 24, 2018) – The Sunshine State Conference (SSC) announces a partnership with BlueFrame Technology to create the new SSC Digital Network for the 2018-2019 academic year.
One year ago, conference administrators announced the launch of the Sunshine State Conference Digital Network, where, for the first time in league history all video content produced league-wide would be available in one place. This year, league administrators have selected BlueFrame as the official streaming partner for the SSC Digital Network. With BlueFrame, all 11 SSC member institutions and the conference office have a dedicated video portal page where live and archived footage can be easily accessed. Fans can find pristine high-quality video streams of SSC events for free on multiple platforms by visiting SunshineStateConference.tv on a computer or mobile device. In addition to online viewing from the website, games will be accessible to fans through custom-built television apps on Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku streaming devices. All apps are available now for free download by searching “SSC Digital Network.”
Along with the transition to BlueFrame, SSC administrators expressed value in a unified live stats offering by electing to partner with StatBroadcast® for 2018-19. The SSC and league members will now be able to deliver and distribute real-time statistical information to a variety of different platforms and audiences for free while maintaining a similar look and feel. The partnership with StatBroadcast® includes a conference-wide live scoreboard hosted on the SSC’s website and a central live stats page for all conference events.
Unified moves to BlueFrame and StatBroadcast® position the Sunshine State Conference among the top of NCAA Division II in regards to comprehensive live content offerings. Fans will be able to find live content on the SSC Digital Network, SSC Live Scoreboard, and SSC Stats Central beginning with a full slate of volleyball matches on August 24th.
“BlueFrame is extremely excited to partner with the Sunshine State Conference,” said Josh Braun, Director of Sales and Customer Service with BlueFrame Technology, “We are looking forward to providing them a fantastic digital network platform and a powerful production solution for branding their broadcasts.”
