The anticipation of added partnerships, combined with a minor shift in season timelines due to the unprecedented years prior, prompted Skyview’s operations department to approach October with innovative solutions. Its next-generation distribution technology was streamlined amongst its new and existing partners in advance of the overlap, enhancing the broadcasts for the teams’ affiliate networks. Additionally, new partners utilizing Skyview’s web-based inventory management software, AdView, had increased efficiency within their broadcast booths and 24/7 access to Skyview’s expert-level support team. Furthermore, the Skyview Technical Operations Center expanded its in-house production capabilities, with the addition of two more production facilities and new team members to oversee the game broadcasts.
As the technology and software were elevated prior to the concurrent league seasons, Skyview Networks promoted several key team members. After showcasing tremendous leadership and ingenuity throughout their time at Skyview, team members Art C De Baca III, Bryan Titus, Richard “Rickey” Sams and Ryan Ricci were promoted within the company to maintain the highest levels of performance. C De Baca and Titus’ new positions include managing the department, while Sams oversees the growing team of board operators and Ricci joins the business services team.
“As Skyview’s business portfolio and partnerships continue to expand, our operations department approaches each broadcast and new season with commitment and professionalism in every aspect,” said Ryan Ballard, Skyview Networks’ SVP, Operations, Engineering and Technology. “This record number of broadcasts managed by our team is a testament to their dedication and ingenuity to ensure the success of each team partner and their season.”
President and CEO of Skyview Networks, Steve Jones, commented, “The magnitude of this overlap and the manner in which our team handled a record-breaking season speaks to the leadership role Skyview has in the audio technology industry. The continued growth within the departments is what drives our evolving business platforms and positions Skyview for further development and innovation.”
