When Yakima University is hosting a game, there is a big chance of being able to see it from the stands.
A camera mounted on a pole is used to film the action.
It also helps in identifying the team.
“I can get my feet wet and see it on TV, and it’s great for a game because it’s just a really fun atmosphere,” says Nick Noyes, a student at the University of Georgia.
However, he warns not to go overboard.
“If you’re in a hurry, you can get a really good picture.
I know of a couple people that got caught out with it and got in a little trouble.”
The cameras were also deployed on the fields to monitor players, coaches and players’ personal effects.
When the game was being broadcast on the YSUs Sports Channel, the pole was used to record footage.
But the team was not allowed to film themselves.
Instead, the Yuzumi, a group of students who were trying to show off their university, would film the players themselves.
“It’s really hard to get away from the cameras, especially when it’s a university game,” says Noyles.
When you’re on a school trip, it’s easy to forget about the cameras.
But when you’re home with a family, you should be able to take your camera with you.
“You have to think about your safety, especially if you’re travelling in a car or plane, but we were able to get a good picture of the Yakima Yuzimis during the game,” explains Noys.
“The camera worked pretty well, so I’m pretty proud of the footage we captured.”
The cameras also allow fans to keep an eye on the team, who are currently in the US and Mexico for a World Cup qualifier.
When Yakimas team is in the United States, the camera is used in order to get an early glimpse of the players on the pitch.
“In the US, we usually have a really cool view of the pitch from our side,” says one of the cameramen.
“So we wanted to get as close to the players as we could.”
The camera also helps the team monitor the atmosphere on the field, and the fans can even make a video.
“We don’t have to do much work to get the best image possible,” says the cameraman.
“Even if we have to be in the air, we can get the perfect angle.”
