(New York) - Kent State University's TeleProductions’ Staff is beaming live Superbowl coverage to Latin America.

Staff members Jeff Bentley, Jason Forbes and Dan Tonelli; Dan LeBeau, an alumnus of Kent State’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication; and Kent State students Mike Donelan and Chris Neiman are in East Rutherford, N.J., with the department’s satellite uplink and production truck for Super Bowl XLVIII to provide production and satellite capabilities for FOX Mexico’s live broadcast of the game.

In 2013, Kent State TeleProductions partnered with PMTV, a global provider of broadcast and video production services, to offer its clients highly customized broadcast, corporate TV and entertainment needs.

Crew member Jeff Bentley reports security is extremely tight, and none of his workers understand Spanish, but they are getting the job done.

Bentley says last year his team provided Superbowl coverage for the BBC.

Bentley tells Newsradio WTAM 1100, “Being invited to work at the Super Bowl for a second year in a row is a significant achievement…and a clear indication of TeleProductions’ success.

Kent State University’s TeleProductions is the full-service video production facility located at the Kent Campus, and has been in operation for 50 years.
