Can’t make it to the football game on Friday night? Juniors and KnightFlix leaders Andrew Neville and Neil Sashti are live streaming and commentating on all varsity football games this season, with the exception of the away game in Charlotte. KnightFlix broadcasts a number of other sporting events, as well as arts performances and graduation.

All home sporting events at Riverview Athletic Complex and the Inman Center will be live streamed this year, but only select ones will have commentary. Games are broadcast on the NFHS Network, which provides live and on-demand broadcasts of high school sports and other events through their website, https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/. “My goal is to commentate as many varsity basketball games as I can, as well as a few volleyball games,” said Neville.

KnightFlix has improved the quality of their cameras, audio and overall viewing experience, thanks to Pace Athletics. “We have added a Pixellot camera for home games,” said Neville, excited about the development. “It is a camera that is mounted into the stands, and its motion is completely automated. It makes it so viewers don’t have to rely on manually operated cameras and allows for a better quality picture.” 

Although the technology is enhanced, they are still low on crew members. With more crew members, KnightFlix hopes to expand their coverage even further. “It is not a large time commitment at all,” said Neville. “[Members] do not have to commit to every single game, just the ones they can come to and have a desire to commentate.” One benefit to working with KnightFlix? Crew members earn service hours. “We want to offer the best viewing experience possible for all Pace Academy students and families,” said Neville.
