MLB’s 2022 Field of Dreams game gains 3.1m viewers for Fox Sports. Mike Gilman, CTO of Gilman Technologies and Niraj Patel, broadcast audio & communications engineer, provided on-site support while Andy Rostron supported in the planning and remote support of the communication needs of the project in Dyersville, Iowa.
As most people are aware this major event happens in the middle of a cornfield in the middle of farmland. The logistical challenge of creating the incredible digital infrastructure needed to support such a large event in the middle of a cornfield was met with amazing proficiency and professionalism from the local population up to the national digital providers. We are glad to have been a part of this production which proved beyond a shadow-of-a-doubt that FOX Sports can produce almost any show, anywhere while maintaining the entertainment level expected by its viewership. We worked closely with team at FOX Sports to provide and execute a plan that made sense for the show setting. The Gamecreek engineers, FOX audio team and Remote support engineers back at home base came together to provide a seemless entertainment experience for more than 3 million viewers. We are truly grateful that FOX Sports made us a part of this experience and look forward to the next time time this event is held.
