About > birdseye history
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.
Today we are 12 years into the business and we have a nice mix of high end live television productions, as well as ur traditional single game filming for individual clients.
We continue to expand with technology and always try to be ahead of the game as we are constantly trying out new ways to deliver exciting and creative footage at a price that any organization can afford.
Ben Talbott continues to serve as President and Founder of Birds Eye Sports. His background includes being one of the only NCAA athletes in history to be named All America in one sport (football) and get selected in the professional draft of another sport (baseball).
His background as an athlete at Lehigh Univeristy, combined with his experience in the industry and M.S. in Sports Management from Columbia University makes him one of the leading authorities in sports media production from an independent organization.
