SAN ANTONIO, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- All American Games,
producer of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, and NewTek, a worldwide
leader in video and 3D animation products, today announced the
winners of their 2013 NewTek All-American Video Crew competition,

instant replay system.
"A very important part of the All American Games is the fact that
fans nationwide can share this experience with us," said Doug Berman,

not just on the field, it's with the Production Crew, as well, and
they are a critical component to our success."

The students will be flown to San Antonio for a five-day,
all-expense-paid trip in which they will participate in various U.S.
Army All-American Bowl activities. As members of the NewTek
All-American Video Crew, they will assist with production for the
U.S. Army All-American Bowl and Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl
events during bowl week. Video crew members will also receive
training at NewTek corporate headquarters on NewTek TriCaster,
portable live production and 3Play, instant replay systems.
"For the NewTek All-American Production Crew, it's not just about
what is going on in the field," said Philip Nelson, NewTek SVP artist
and media relations. "It's also about creating a captivating
experience for the fans that are watching the live stream. And, we
