MONTGOMERY, Ala (WDHN) — The AHSAA released news today that the National Federation of State High School Association is going to give each member state’s school two brand new top of the line production equipment.
This device is called “Pixellot” and it is a camera as well as a streaming service.
The Pixellot solution will help high schools stream their athletic events and activities so that fans can follow the action even when unable to be there in person. The NFHS Network will also be assisting schools by increasing its subscription revenue sharing effective August 1, 2020.
The NFHS is doing this at a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic and how that will affect high school sports money generating capabilities.
Along with the cameras, the NFHS is pairing up with their Network website to help generate the revenue from streams that the schools put on.
AHSAA Executive Director, Steve Savarese, called this a “once in a lifetime” opportunity for the state’s schools to modernize their production and streaming of athletic events without having to pay for it.
Savarese also hopes schools will use this to their advantage to make up for losses taken from the lack of attendance. These losses will stem from no ticket sales, concessions and fundraisers that the COVID-19 pandemic will take away.
