    I see no reference to hyper local sports in this article. Can you clarify the connection for me, please?
    Thanks

    I should have clarified. While iNK Barrel delivers video to online news sites, it has found that one of the most popular applications of this technology for hyperlocal news sites has been in the coverage of local sports events.

    You said it right here:

    Their innovative system and implementation in the marketplace and our powerful underpinnings brings iNK Barrel’s live sports events and other events to PC’s, mobile devices as well as cable television.”

    My question is how to monetize such a unique and small market share,(local HS sports events) when we are a school district and have such limited personnel and resources?
