LEXINGTON, Ky. – BlueFrame Technology announced Tuesday it has entered into an official partnership with the Little East Conference (LEC) and its nine members schools. BlueFrame has launched an end-to-end digital network available online and across custom LEC streaming applications for TV and mobile devices. BlueFrame will power the Little East Network (https://www.littleeast.tv) for the next four years.
"Partnering with an industry-leader in BlueFrame Technology will provide an enhanced LEC Network viewing experience for every member of our campus communities, one we look forward to providing when our student-athletes return to competition," said LEC Associate Commissioner Darryl Konicki. "This is the culmination of a comprehensive review of the LEC's digital platforms over the past 18 months. BlueFrame provides the tools for each of our institutions to produce events that have the same look and feel fans are accustomed to seeing from the major television networks."
In addition to advanced distribution technology and streaming aps, the LEC and its member schools will utilize BlueFrame's Production Truck software to produce and stream broadcasts. Production Truck will allow all LEC schools and the conference to produce games professionally with tools like Instant Replay, Social Media Sharing, graphics, and more.
