MVPCAST will be the Official Video Provider of the 2021 Triple Crown NIT. Now more than ever, it will be important for teams to capture HD quality video and livestream all of their matches in order for college coaches to watch and recruit. With the NCAA dead period extended to April due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are creating a College Coach Portal within the MVPCAST platform where college coaches can login to view all matches from Kansas City.
Pay-Per-View pricing and access to HD video and MVPCAST tools to create highlight reels will be announced soon!
What benefits do the videographers get?
Which device should a videographer use?
MVPCAST has tested hundreds of devices to find which one provides the highest-quality video and longest battery life. Apple’s iPad (Pro, Air or mini) 5th Generation or better (manufactured starting in 2018) is the highest-rated device. This device will guarantee the best video for college coaches to recruit and will be required by all videographers.
What is the cost of MVPCAST?
The assigned videographer will have free access of the MVPCAST app in order to capture the HD video and livestream each match. Packages for fans to watch live and for parents to access the HD video and highlight reel tools will be available for purchase. Details on price will be announced soon.
Can I download the video from the MVPCAST platform?
Yes, if you purchase the NIT Package you will be able to download your highlight videos. However, this is not necessary, as highlight videos can be shared directly through MVPCAST and college coaches will be using the College Coach Portal to view videos through the platform. Please note that full videos are not available for downloads.
How will college coaches get access to this footage?
We are creating a College Coach Portal that will be available for all coaches to login to in order to view every match. The NIT has access and is in communication with thousands of college coaches and will direct them to use the platform.
Can we livestream the event?
Yes, each videographer will have access to the high-speed WiFi network in the convention center to livestream each match through the MVPCAST app. Fans unable to attend will be able to purchase Pay-Per-View packages to watch every match. The WiFi access can only be used to stream for the NIT "Pay-Per-View" via the MVPCAST app.
As a videographer what device can I use for the MVPCAST app?
While the MVPCAST app does work on multiple types of devices, we are requiring all videographers to use Apple iPads (Pro, Air or Mini) 5th Generation or better in order to ensure the highest quality of video for college coaches and those watching from home. MVPCAST has tested hundreds of devices and the iPads perform the best for both quality and battery life.
If our videographer has questions during the event or technical issues who do they talk to?
MVPCAST will have a booth set up during the event with staff to answer questions and assist videographers with technical issues.
Does my team have to dedicate a videographer to record and livestream for "NIT Pay-Per-View"?
Using the MVPCAST technology and dedicating a videographer will assure that your team’s athletes will be seen by thousands of college coaches. The NIT has worked tirelessly with MVPCAST to find a solution that produces the best HD quality video with easy-to-use livestreaming capabilities tied to a reliable WiFi connection. Teams who do not use the MVPCAST app will not have access to the high-speed WiFi network in the convention center and videos of their matches will not appear in the College Coach Portal where we will be directing all coaches to access.
Each videographer will have to attend a 30-minute training session via Zoom. As part of training call, the videographer’s devices will be tested, configured and verified to assure best quality and uninterrupted recording. We will offer training sessions on these dates/times:
Tuesday, January 19 @ 6:00 p.m. CT
Monday, January 25 @ 4:00 p.m. PT
Wednesday, January 27 @ 7:00 p.m. ET
