Pfeiffer’s athletics streaming home will now be following the university’s partnership with HUDL.

The three-year agreement begins with the 2023-24 season and will enhance the streaming experience for Falcon athletic events. In addition, Pfeiffer’s head coaches now have HUDL’s advanced tools to aid in recruiting student-athletes and analytical tools to enhance their preparation for competitions.

HUDL, a global leader in sports and performance analysis technology, has partnered with more than 230,000 teams and more than 11,000 collegiate and professional organizations to stream live sporting events across the world.

As part of the HUDL partnership, cameras were installed at Lefko Field, home of Falcon soccer and lacrosse, and in Merner Gym, home of Pfeiffer volleyball and basketball.

The auto-tracking cameras follow the game action without the use of a cameraperson, eliminating shaky footage and giving viewers a clear view of the court and field. The camera technology captures the action from the perfect angle, offering viewers a quality experience while archiving the footage for review and analysis by Pfeiffer’s coaching staff.

“Pfeiffer athletics is excited to begin our partnership with HUDL,” said Pfeiffer athletic director Zac Chilton. “We believe that this partnership will be a huge step in the right direction for all of our athletic programs and their future success. Not only will this benefit our student-athletes and coaching staff with analytics tailored to their specific sport, it will also improve our live streaming capabilities and our digital presence.”

Pfeiffer will also utilize Production Truck, a product that provides a broadcast quality software pioneered by BlueFrame Technology, which was acquired by HUDL in the summer of 2022.

Each program at Pfeiffer will benefit from HUDL’s statistical and analytical services as well as its recruiting platform, which will enable all coaches to view highlight packages and statistical information from prospective student-athletes.
