Thanks to a generous donation from the Coronado Football Club, Coronado High School installed high-tech cameras at CHS Niedermeyer Field and gymnasium allowing games played in these locations to be live-streamed or watched on-demand. Additionally, many area high schools have similar cameras, which allow fans to watch CHS games played at those venues.
CSH Athletic Director, Robin Nixon, shared, “The athletes and fans of Coronado High School cannot be more grateful for the generous gift from the Coronado Football Club, these cameras will give a great option to watch our athletes in action wherever and whenever they choose.”
Fans who want to stream CHS games can purchase a $10.99 monthly or $69.99 annual subscription from https://www.nfhsnetwork.com. The monthly subscription can be cancelled at any time, so fans can choose to subscribe only for the months with sports they are interested in watching. NFHS shares a portion of annual subscription fees with the Islander Sports Foundation to support ongoing sports programs. The subscription service provides several viewing options:
- Online at www.NFHSnetwork.com
- Through the NFHS network mobile app for iOS and Android
- Through TV apps for ROKU, Amazon Fire, and Apple TV
The original intention of the cameras stems from a growing trend among high schools and club sports to film games for statistical analysis as well as to help individual athletes create highlight videos for college recruiters. In pandemic times, the cameras provide an added benefit for CHS sports fans to watch games when COVID-19 regulations limit or do not allow fans in the stands.
Pixellot (TM) cameras use artificial intelligence technology to follow the game action without the need of a live camera operator. The cameras are programmed to turn on and off at specific times as scheduled by the Athletic Department. The streaming service offered through National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) allows any subscriber to watch any event live or on-demand. Subscribers can watch any home or away game that is part of the NFHS network which currently includes high schools in Mar Vista, Mission Bay, La Jolla, Serra, and Point Loma, among others.
