September 23rd, 2020 – Darlington FC, one of Britain’s fan-owned football clubs, has teamed up with CJP Broadcast for Quaker TV, joining the growing number of sports organisations establishing their own IPTV channel.
Quaker TV will be run entirely by Darlington FC volunteers, building on their experience in running the Darlington FC YouTube channel and Darlo Fans Radio. At the core of the club’s new live-streaming service is a complete system including a Streamstar X4 Live Production Studio and four-channel talkback, supplied and installed by CJP Broadcast.
Stuart Armstrong, one of the DFR commentators over the past eight years, who has played a key role in launching Quaker TV, commented on the news: “With all the uncertainty about attendances this coming season, we decided to provide a high quality streaming service for our fans living outside the area or who might be shielding against coronavirus. We know from our work on DFR that we have many followers around the world who tune in regularly to keep up with the team and be part of the Darlo community.
“We engaged with CJP Broadcast who have been helpful with information and guidance throughout the planning stages, always looking to help to be cost conscious and reduce capital expenditure by reutilising our existing camera and audio tech into the new system. The Streamstar technology they have installed provides everything we need at this stage of our experience with live production.”
