Technical support and resources are minutes away

UW Video’s engineers are intimately familiar with UW facilities, video infrastructure and fiber map and the needs of campus partners and broadcasters. In addition, since UWTV is a 24/7/365 operation, our engineers are always available to address needs that may arise within our campus video operations.

Worldwide live broadcast capabilities

UW Video connects UW to news outlets around the world through both satellite and fiber transmission. UW faculty experts, coaches and athletes regularly use the convenient UW Video studios for both national and international television interviews. UW Video can accommodate requests from media outlets for interviews or help departments conduct and transmit satellite media tours. UW Video has transmitted interviews and events to ESPN, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, ABC, FOX, CBS and ROOT Sports, among many others.
