At the Speed of Light: Fiber Connects Campus to Media World

The historic Rutgers 250th anniversary commencement in May 2016 was broadcast around the world, and Rutgers professors regularly go “live” on television—all via a 21st-century invention: optical fiber optic cable.

Peter Troost, assistant director of broadcast operations/production for Rutgers iTV Studio, answered queries about how fiber optic services work at Rutgers:

Q: How did the commencement broadcast get from the stadium to the world?

A: We used an internal university fiber optic line running from High Point Solutions Stadium to the Rutgers iTV Studio on Berrue Circle on Livingston campus. The feed from the production control room at the stadium was transmitted on that line to the studio—and then to AMV Gateway, a video communications company in Carteret, which then retransmitted the feed across the Hudson River to LIVESTREAM, a media streaming service.
