Fighting Irish Media has once again put together a live show worthy of the storied tradition and history of Notre Dame football. A two hour live production streamed on a customized web page UND.com/signingday, WatchND mobile app, Periscope and Facebook Live covering the signing of 24 incoming freshman football players on December 19, 2018. This show seen through the lens of 7 cameras was anchored by Former Fighting Irish Offensive lineman & Super Bowl Champion Ryan Harris and Former fighting Irish Football Manager Pete Byrne from a studio set within the Martin Media Center at the University of Notre Dame. The creatively-themed ""Fight Club 19"" show featured live interviews, pre-produced profiles of all signees, FaceTime & conference calls between coaches and players, exclusive behind the scenes look-ins to the football war room, a real-time ticker generating the show rundown and the latest signee information, innovative production elements with the use of Chyron paint and capped by a press conference held by Head Football Coach Brian Kelly. Over the span of two weeks, Fighting Irish Media produced all content in-house along with the support of a student crew. All graphics and video features were created and adapted for multiple forms of distribution platforms such as live broadcast, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and VOD content for YouTube, UND.com and the WatchND mobile app. While all of the football happenings originated at the Guglielmino Athletics Complex, the live show was produced and directed from a state-of-the art control room located three campus buildings away at the Rex and Alice A. Martin Media Center. The center is designed with IP audio/video routing technology, one of only a handful in the world, that provides the necessary flexibility and growth capacity for managing the complex multimedia needs of the entire Notre Dame campus.
