The Canisius athletic department announced today that 16 home Golden Griffin sporting events during the fall season will be aired live on ESPN3, starting Tuesday, Sept. 15, when the volleyball team meets cross-town rival Buffalo at 7 p.m., in the Koessler Athletic Center.
In March, Canisius announced that it has entered into a new agreement with ESPN, under which its students will produce live Canisius athletic programing for ESPN3. The multi-camera HD game productions will feature full ESPN-branded graphics, replays and two or three-person broadcast crews. The student productions will be directed by Canisius’ athletic communications and digital media staffs. These events will be available to more than 99 million households and by an additional 21 million U.S.-based college students and military personnel.
A total of nine Canisius home volleyball matches will be broadcast live on ESPN3, including eight matches against MAAC rivals. Four Canisius men’s soccer games will be shown on ESPN3 and three women’s soccer home dates will be featured on ESPN’s digital platform as well.
Both the Golden Griffin soccer programs will also be featured live throughout New York state on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel during the fall season. The women’s soccer team’s home date against MAAC rival Marist on Sept. 30, will be featured live on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel, as will the men’s soccer home date against Siena Oct. 7. Those games will also be streamed through the Golden Griffin Broadcast Network, but those broadcasts will also be subject to online blackout within the Time Warner Cable footprint.
Games that are not broadcast live on ESPN3 will still be available to viewers as part of the Golden Griffin Broadcast Network at GoGriffs.com. Canisius and its online partner NeuLion have worked together to provide single-game, 24-hour passes to the Golden Griffin Broadcast that cost $7.95. Fans are also able to secure month-long packages for Canisius broadcasts and MAAC.TV events as well.
Canisius also announced the addition of two new full-time staff members to the athletic department’s athletic communications and digital media team. Sam Hallett, a 2007 graduate from the New England School of Broadcasting has been named the school’s new director of digital media. Hallett, who previously worked with Digital Workshop and the University of Maine’s athletic video efforts, will be responsible for managing all aspects of the digital media initiatives within the athletic department, including oversight of all live event streaming on ESPN3 and the Golden Griffin Broadcast Network. He will also serve as an adjunct professor in the College’s communications studies program, focusing his efforts on live video production.Garrett Layton, a 2012 graduate of Medaille, returns to Canisius as the school’s assistant director of digital media. Layton, who previously served as the Griffs’ multimedia graduate assistant, will assist in the management of all aspects of the department’s digital media efforts, while also working to help recruit and train student workers, technicians and media producers from the College’s communications studies program. Last year, Layton was responsible for all athletic video operations at Hartford.
