The testing session at the Destrehan Scrimmage on August 19th, 2016 went well.  The Team tested two of the fiber cameras, the Newtek 3Play system and the ATEM 2 M/E switcher.  Each Team Member worked each position for about 20 minutes to get a feel for the position and see what it’s like to work during a live football broadcast.  Each Team Member also had a chance to work the wireless sideline camera, upper camera and end zone camera.
