Embeddable Media Webstream Available for Governor Charlie Baker’s UMass Amherst Undergraduate Commencement Address on Friday, May 10

The University of Massachusetts Amherst will provide a media-dedicated live webstream of its Undergraduate Commencement ceremonies, including Governor Charlie Baker’s keynote address to the graduating class,               
on Friday, May 10.

The commencement ceremony is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m., and
Gov. Baker should be introduced at approximately 5:45 p.m. He will speak for approximately 15 minutes. Please note that the final schedule may be adjusted due to inclement weather.

While the university will have a public webstream on its website, a separate media-only feed of the entire commencement ceremony will be available at this link:

This will be a “clean,” high-quality stream with neither a bug nor captions applied by the university or its production partners. There will be no fee to access this stream.

If preferred, an HMTP (hyper mail transfer protocol) stream is also available simultaneously and directly from the encoders to a network destination. Please contact Jared Sharpe for details.
