We were one of the first companies in the country to begin to use video on the internet, believe it or not. in 2003 Ben Talbott founded Birds Eye Sports with the vision of creating an on demand sports production company that could produce high quality video of any event for live and on demand viewing online. At the time only a handful of media companies were streaming any video at all on a regular basis (Think early ESPN.com days).
We were quickly recognized as a leading multimedia source for high school and college sports in the Northeast, including a member driven message board with over 4,000 members chatting and communicating online daily (Think pre Facebook days). We were mostly filming single camera production of high school sports in those early years.
A few years into our existance we began to produce multicam broadcasts of high school state championships in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. As technology expanded and more and more media outlets looked to show local sports content on television, our broadcasting group took off.
Ben founded BirdsEyeSports in 2003, and has been filming, directing and working the business since. You can find him Directing at the US Open, on ESPN+ and filming for various other outlets on our broadcast teams.
