Glossary of Sports Broadcast Solutions Terminology

 

Advertising Options:  Full-screen commercials, graphics, Picture-in-Picture (PIP), split screen, scoreboard sponsorship, and on-air reads

 

Event:  Can be a baseball game, softball game, soccer game, football game, hockey game, volleyball match, basketball game, rugby match, cross-country meet, gymnastics, swimming, tennis match, rowing, wrestling, boxing, musical, play, etc.  Sports Broadcast Solutions films events for all ages, Middle School, High School, Club events, College and Adult Leagues; both amateur and professional events.  Sports Broadcast Solutions has experience broadcasting all of those events.

 

Frames Per Second (FPS):  Frames create video footage. The reason why photographs are also known as "still frames" is because they only have 1 frame, AKA a non-moving file. Most live and live-to-tape broadcasts are created in 30 FPS (720p and 1080p broadcasts). 

 

Graphic Scoreboard (Score Banner):  Graphic scoreboard in a corner or bottom or top of the screen that displays the teams playing, the score, time remaining or the inning number, the period, quarter or half that the event is in.  Essentially a quick snapshot of where we are at any point during the contest.

Headset:  Typically a cardioid hands-free microphone that is primarily used for play-by-play commentary and color analysis.

Live:  What you see in real time.

Live Score Banner:  (same as Graphic Scoreboard)

Livestream:  The event is sent (ie. Streamed) over the Internet so people can watch the event live while it’s happening.  Typically livestreamed in High Definition (HD) but in 720p; even though the event is typically filmed in High Definition (HD) at 1080p.  Sports Broadcast Solutions typically streams on YouTube.com @sportsbroadcastsolutions and at 720p, but can and has also livestreamed on Facebook or Instragram. Note: You probably want to use a Pepwave or Ethernet connection to effectively livestream in 1080P.  Synonymous with Raw Footage/Livestream (RF/LS)

Lower Third:  Graphics covering the lower portion of the screen during a broadcast, usually placed in the "title-safe area."  We might say who it is we are interviewing in our Lower Thirds.

 

Omnidirectional:  Receiving signals from or transmitting in all directions

 

On-Air Reads:  The Play-by-Play and/or Color Announcer would read an advertising script for the sponsor, live and on-air between points during the event. Full screen and picture-in-picture graphics would play on screen during the on-air reads.

 

On Demand:  The footage that was recorded on the camera's SD card or saved and stored on the computer’s disk drive.  Sports Broadcast Solutions posts this video on YouTube so that it may be viewed after the event has finished.  ALL events that are livestreamed are available later for on-demand viewing.

Live-to-Tape:  Another name for a purely on demand broadcast. The name comes from film companies that used to have to record footage on tapes (linear editing), you know, when then dinosaurs roamed, instead of through SD cards (non-linear editing).

Overmodulation:  The red bar that you see on an audio mixer. You don't want to consistently go over -6 decibels and DEFINITELY not over 0. Overmodulation creates a kind of crackle in the person's voice.

Picture-in-Picture (PIP):  A unique form of split screen that can show anything you film live or pre-recorded in a smaller size.  A second camera is required.  A good example use of PIP is a second camera ‘trained’ on the scoreboard during the event and displayed in the corner of the screen during the event, as opposed to a graphic scoreboard. We also offer PIP comercial breaks.

Raw Footage:  Video recording of the event.  One camera angle.  No scoreboard or play-by-play or color commentary and no pre- or post-event interviews.  Typically filmed in High Definition (1080p).

Stic Microphone:  Typically an omnidirectional microphone that is primarily used for field reporting.

Videocamera:  Camcorder that takes video of your event in High Definition Video (1080p).

Video Capture Card:  Adapter that translates from HDMI or mini-HDMI to USB to connect image/voice to computer.

YouTube:  This is where we post the productions such as Broadcasts, Livestreams, Interviews, Highlight Reels and our Talk Videos.

XLR:  External Line Return - Standardized voice connection for most types of audio devices such as speakers, mixing boards, amplifiers, microphones, and other recording equipment that we use.

 

4K Quality:  A new aspect ratio that is currently being used by several cinematic companies. 3840x2160 pixels. Note: Some companies even film footage in 4096x2160 (1.91:1)

 

720p High Definition (HD) Quality: The smallest aspect ratio of High Definition (HD). The aspect ratio is 1280x720 (1280 height and 720 width). This is also referred to as 16:9.

 

1080p High Definition (HD) Quality: The largest aspect ratio of High Definition (HD). 1920x1080 aspect ratio. This is also referred to as 16:9.

BROADCAST ROLES:

 

Play-by-Play (PBP) Announcer/Commentator: They announce what they see in real time. In addition, the Play-by-Play announcer also uses human interest stories to keep the story of the game going.

Color Analyst/Commentator: Works with the Play-by-Play announcer to analyze “why” something happened during the event.  This broadcaster typically has significant experience having played, coached and/or refereed that event over time at a high-level.

Pre-game Host:  Prior to the event, one of the announcers will interview a player from the home team or visiting team or both for a minute or two.  This role is typically handled by the Play-by-Play Announcer, or the Color Analyst, but sometimes the Technical Director will perform this role, as well.

Post-game Host:  Just after the event, one of the announcers will interview a player from the home team or visiting team or both for a minute or two.  This role is typically handled by the Play-by-Play announcer or the Color Analyst, but sometimes the Technical Director will perform this role, as well.

Field Reporter: An engaging host that interviews players/coaches during the pregame show, halftime show, and postgame show.

 

Technical Director:  This role is the most important role, and is ‘behind the scenes.’  This person is responsible for the entire setup, including camera, cables, computer, videography equipment setup and microphones and audio and video setup;  plus installing, and configuring all the software required to capture and record the event, graphics, scoreboard, livestreaming configuration, and commercial breaks.  This technical director also handles and responds to chat messaging during the event.  This is a REQUIRED role for every broadcast – on-demand, livestream and/or highlight reel.

 

Videographer: Using a high-quality video camera, this person records video of the event.  One Videographer per camera angle is required.

Expensive DSLR Video Camera & Lens or Canon Camcorder, & tripod for the Videographer.  In this case in a mobile golf cart. Fore!  Another time in a boat for rowing.  Typically in indoor or outdoor press boxes for Football, Soccer, Hockey, Baseball, Basketball, etc.

Omnidirectional Stic Microphone for the pre- and post-game interviews, complete with mic flag.  Headsets for play-by-play and color announcers.

Technical Director.  Easy role?  Yeah, right!  This time its Kyle Smith, running the show for basketball, today. Multiple monitors, inputs, camera & Microphones, plus a bunch of software, graphics and scoreboards.
