Drum Corps International teams up with Winter Guard International for live Internet broadcasts

by Drum Corps International

After bringing live streaming video of Drum Corps International major events to drum corps fans during the 2006 summer season, DCI teams up this spring to bring the WGI World Championships to fans on the Web.



Drum Corps International (DCI) is pleased to partner with Winter Guard International (WGI) to offer live video webcasts of performances from the 2007 WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio. On April 13-14 and April 20-21 during the WGI color guard and percussion championships, you'll have the opportunity to catch all of the action from the convenience of your computer's Web browser.







"With the success of Drum Corps International's live webcasts of major events during the 2006 season, we are excited to team up to connect DCI and WGI fans online, providing access to the outstanding performances at the WGI World Championships," said Drum Corps International Executive Director and CEO Dan Acheson.



"This marks a milestone for WGI to provide Internet broadcasting of our world championships for all those not in Dayton this year," said WGI Executive Director Ron Nankervis. "Our strategic partnership with DCI on this project was a logical step since we share so many performers as well as fans."



Content will be delivered in a pay-per-day format that will allow a single viewer to login to the broadcast anytime throughout one entire competition day. Viewers can join performers live from Dayton, but in the comfort of their own homes.



"The goal of this webcast is to offer an affordable way for all fans who can't make the trip to Dayton the chance to join in the action of the World Championships," said WGI Marketing Manager Bart Woodley.
