BitFire Buzz - September 2021

News from the team at BitFire Networks

BitFire Networks is thrilled to announce a year-long partnership with SkyCam to continue delivering live sport’s best viewing angles.

The agreement is for the entire NFL and NCAA season, providing video delivery, remote camera control and communications interface.

This partnership with the world’s leading designer, manufacturer and operator of mobile aerial camera systems comes on the heels of an extremely successful partnership during the 2020 NFL and NCAA football seasons.

In 2020, BitFire and SkyCam teamed up on 100 games.
This year, that number has tripled to more than 300, almost every game on the NFL schedule.
“We needed an agile, trusted partner to not only be a technology provider, but really listen to and understand our specific needs and budget constraints,” said Stephen Wharton, COO, SkyCam LLC. “We found BitFire had a mature solution and platform already in place, providing us the infrastructure needed to properly scale.”
We did it again. We partnered with NHL Network & MLB Network for the 2021 NHL Draft & Draft Lottery. Check out the behind-the-scenes reel of how it all went down.
