About Villanova Men's Basketball Team
The Villanova Men's Basketball Team are the 1985, 2016, and 2018 NCAA Men's Basketball National Champions. They are a proud member of the Big East Conference. Villanova Athletics has produced nearly 60 Olympians, who have participated in every Summer Olympics since 1948!
To Ryan Christiansen, Director of Video Operations at Villanova University, live video is a great way to keep fans engaged, and give parents and alumni a sense of inclusivity if they can’t make it to sporting events. It made perfect sense to start live streaming, but he was only able to stream content to Facebook, due to bandwidth restrictions.
In order to achieve maximum reach and engagement, he needed a distribution platform that would give him the power to simultaneously stream Villanova’s sports content to their numerous social media platforms.
- Replace feature content by implementing live content such as season preview shows, post-game press conferences, and pre-game shows.
- Use Switchboard Cloud to simultaneously live stream Villanova Athletics' live shows to Facebook, Periscope, YouTube, and Nova Nation All-Access.
