|Allstate Sugar Bowl Radio Information
If you are a radio station planning to cover the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl, here is some information which may be of value to you.
We have arranged for radio stations to be able to set up in a "radio row" style location at our official media hotel (Marriott Convention Center) during the week leading up to the game. Contact John Sudsbury (email@example.com) if interested.
Live Audio During Game Week
For those radio stations not able to be in attendance at game-week press conferences, the audio will be available online at www.AllstateSugarBowl.org. Visit "Quotes Central" under the "Media" tab and links will be posted for the live audio approximately 20 minutes before each press conference. This worked last year for stations using as a live feed or to record for later use. There is no charge for this service.
Online audio of all press conferences will also be posted on www.AllstateSugarBowl.org under "Quote Central." Media outlets can visit that site now to see what was posted last year and test their systems with this downloadable audio. We will be glad to work with anyone on specific requests.
Press Conference Feeds
All official press conference audio and video is only available from our official feed. Please make sure you have the proper equipment and cables to receive this feed. Composite video is via BNC, and audio (mic or line level) is via XLR. If you are capturing our feed to a personal computer, you will need adapters to connect your capture device (Canopus, Elgato, Etc.) to the mult. Generally, the capture devices use RCA connectors as inputs - Thus, for video, you will need BNC to RCA male, and for audio, you will need XLR female to RCA male. Recording on a VCR or camera will require BNC to the input on the device, generally BNC, and XLR female to the input on the device, generally XLR male. SDI/HD video with embedded audio is via BNC. You will have the ability to pull a separate audio feed via XLR if needed. For further information, please contact Ray Garofalo (Ray@TheProlineGroup.com).
Pregame or Postgame Shows
If you plan to do any live pre-game or post-game shows, please contact John Sudsbury (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP to inquire about availability of space at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, as well as to verify technical needs.
If you plan on doing in-game score and game updates from the press box, please contact John Sudsbury (email@example.com) ASAP so we can arrange for these to be the least intrusive for other media members working in the press box.
