Students at Hampton-Dumont-CAL High School will soon be able to connect the school to the rest of the world.

H-D-CAL last month received equipment to livestream sporting events and fine arts performances to viewers wherever internet can be accessed through the World Wide Streaming Network (WSN). WSN provides the gear and support needed to bring livestreaming to a wide area of viewers.

Students in Matt Lokenvitz’s multimedia productions class this year have begun experimenting with the equipment and have used the equipment for a couple of live events. Lokenvitz said the goal is to work out the kinks this year and be able to offer livestreaming for mostly every event next year. Aside from live events, students will also conduct coaches’ corner interviews, alumni spotlights and news shows about happenings within the school.

“This will bring the community into the school and keep them involved with everything going on here,” he said.
