“I was completely blown away by GlobeStream’s ability to stream an event of this magnitude. It’s not easy to stream 10+ hours a day on 9 fields – especially in extremely hot conditions. The LiveU technology provided a higher-quality, reliable solution, which gave our online viewers an amazing opportunity to be part of the games.”

Streaming 9 Simultaneous Softball Games A Home Run for USA Softball

It started as a proof of concept. Brett Casadonte and the team at GlobeStream Media wanted to show their client, USA Softball the level of production they could achieve with a wireless REMI production model – at an affordable price point and within the budget constraints they faced.

The result? More than 500 hours of live coverage of the Girls 18 and under (18u) and 16 and under (16u) Gold National Championships. How’d they do it? A combination of LiveU At-Home Production allowed MORE simultaneous streams with LESS onsite crew. Saving time and money while producing more revenue generating content. All games throughout the tournament were streamed to USA Softball’s website for fans, family, and friends to enjoy. 

"They have only ever done single camera streams for all the fields, so when we showed them what could be done affordably with four cameras and remote production, they were amazed.”


Held at the Heritage Yards softball complex in Plano, Texas, USA Softball’s Girls 18 and under (18u) and 16 and under (16u) Gold National Championships featured more than 70 softball teams from around the country, playing over 245 softball games during the 6-day tournament.

”We wouldn’t have been able to have that kind of success with another solution. It wouldn’t have been feasible or cost-effective to bring all the extra gear such as laptops to every single field to produce onsite.”

All games were live streamed directly to the Team USA Softball’s Website for fan engagement and monetization.
