DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 8, 2013) – AMA Pro Racing is pleased to announce that the AMA Pro Live streaming video system will be broadcasting at all AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles events in 2013. AMA Pro Live is a live streaming video system which has been designed to put fans in the director's chair, allowing them to select from a variety of cameras located around the racetrack while monitoring live timing and scoring data and social media feeds. The online system can be accessed through a web browser from any computer, tablet or mobile device by navigating to http://www.amaprolive.com.
“This is an exciting step for our sport,” said Michael Gentry, Chief Operating Officer of AMA Pro Racing. “The ability to live stream our events will help us reach a crucial demographic and provide coverage of the sport globally. We know our fans have wanted the ability to watch our races online. Our staff has worked long and hard on this system and we are proud to be able to provide live streaming to the fans this season."
Initially, AMA Pro Live's implementation at AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles events will consist of two video channels alongside live timing and scoring and social media feeds, providing complete coverage from the first practice until the final checkered flag. The first channel will feature a camera mounted in the P.A. booth overlooking all of the action, and will include an audio feed of Scottie Deubler and Barry Boone providing play-by-play analysis of the racing. The second camera will be located trackside near the start-finish line, giving fans a close-up view of the day's racing activity and allowing them to hear the thunder of the motorcycles as they roar around the track. Additional channels are planned for future events, including a roaming camera in the pits and on-board cameras mounted on the motorcycles.
AMA Pro Live will be live streaming all rounds on the 2013 AMA Pro Flat Track presented by J&P Cycles schedule. For those that can’t make it to the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton, Calif. for this weekend's Stockton Half-Mile, this link – http://www.amaprolive.com - will grant them direct access to AMA Pro Live and allow them to watch the entire event. Live streaming of practice and qualifying is set to begin Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. PST (6:30 p.m. EST), with opening ceremonies for the main event set to begin at 7:00 p.m. PST (10:00 p.m. EST).
