Welcome to MIT Sportcast! We broadcast MIT sporting events in high-definition TV on MIT Cable Television, using live production software we are developing on GNU/Linux with OpenGL. We also have a blog about the progress of our software. If you're interested in joining the project, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We're at Sportcast@mit.edu
