That mean’s live basketball (when permitted by SEC rules), live baseball, live softball, live soccer, live volleyball, live gymnastics, live indoor track and live outdoor track. RazorVision is also responsible for production of audio feeds whenever the Razorback Sports Properties group creates radio broadcasts, including many internet-only audio streams for sports like softball, soccer and volleyball.

The Office of New Media creates postgame highlight packages for almost every Razorback home event and provides video coverage of all Arkansas Athletics press conferences. Earlier this spring, the 1,000th video clip was added to the RazorVision archive – a number unmatched by most official college websites.
