Yes. It is possible.
Equipment needed in the press box:
- Internet connection
- External video camera connected to computer
Insert microphone for announcer
Start a Google Hangout OnAir
Proceed to make history
These sound like simple steps because they are just an idea. Later this fall I plan to set this up with our football coach to stream live high school games for the community.
How to make it happen:
- Create a Google Document that has a schedule
- Hyperlink the YouTube link to the Hangout OnAir in the document
- Shorten the Schedule Document using goo.gl
- Share the link on Facebook, Twitter or G+ or old fashioned email
- Watch the game from anywhere
Keep posted for more on this as it happens closer to the school year. Football is just the beginning.
