The idea here is to present the USPL/video company with some clear and concise opinions on what will make the webcast more appealing to the consumer.
I will list what I picked up from the other threads and add any additional thoughts that are posted. Please don't use this thread for venting your frustrations, I want them to see calm, clear and informative opinions. If you want to ***** please do it elsewhere, editing/deleting will be done as required.
: The biggest opinion seems to be people want it for free.
Worth the cost
: It seems a lot of people would be willing to pay for access, but the overwhelming feeling is that a paid service should be more reliable.
Matty Marshall/Nick T
: Mad love to Nicky Cuba, but I defiantly stand with the crowd that would prefer to watch Nicky destroy people on the field. Sorry.
: There isn't much of a need for a scoreboard in 7-man. But maybe a clock & dead/live count would be nice.
: Maybe an option of Low/High Quality for people with different capabilities or internet quality. Could also maybe have a free LQ, paid HQ, just a thought.
Better camera positions
: Here is a link
to part of the 2008 NCPA Championships. Which additionally has commentary by Matty Marshall and Bea Youngs, so you can hear why he is so loved as a commentator. I know that a lot of what they did was in post-production, but I'm sure there are somethings you could do in a live feed.
: If memory serves me right the PSP world cup webcast had some pre-recorded stuff during breaks. Might even be able to sell some spots for commercial purposes, but not too much, could help make it better without all the cost going to the consumer.
* Splat magazine has some vids
with pro-tips in them.
* Short pre recorded interviews
* Videos promoting new gear
* Videos reviewing gear
That's all I can think of for now, mind you these are not just my opinions, they are a collaboration of opinions, some of which I don't necessarily agree with. Please feel free to add additional
thoughts, I will try and add them all to the original post, we don't need 4 pages of people saying "make it free" or anything of the sort.
