LEXINGTON, Ky. – BlueFrame Technology is excited to welcome its latest conference, the California Collegiate Athletic Association. BlueFrame has created an end-to-end digital network platform for web, mobile and television for the conference and 10 of its member schools.
“We’re very excited to provide a unique set of tools and a new look digital network to the CCAA,” said Brad Farley, Director of Operations for BlueFrame Technology. “They are the first conference that is taking advantage of our web application, our new automated captioning technology, and are the first to test our Official Video Review. We’re excited to work with such an awesome partner that will lead to improvements in their streaming as well as the services we provide.”
BlueFrame handles the distribution and technology that will power the CCAA Network. Production Truck will allow the CCAA to add graphics, instant replay, and other professional features to their live productions. In addition to the software and streaming technology, BlueFrame’s new automated captioning technology will be able to provide captions for any broadcast that has a commentator.
“The CCAA had certain requirements for a digital network that other conferences weren’t bound to, particularly, live closed-captioning of our events. We talked with numerous providers, but it was clear that BlueFrame was the group that wanted to step up and accept the challenge.”said CCAA Commissioner Mitch Cox. “We entered this agreement as a partnership in the truest sense of the word. We trusted they would be able to provide the services we required, and they were excited to be able to push their technology to the next level to meet those needs. We are thrilled to be working with BlueFrame and look forward to creating a network that our fans will enjoy for years to come.”
CCAA broadcasts will be available on ccaanetwork.com and the CCAA apps can be downloaded for TV and mobile by searching for ‘CCAA Network’. The CCAA television apps include Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, and Roku. Mobile apps are available for iOS and Android.
