Default SmashBoxxTV [Live Coverage]

I thought it might be worthwhile to have a separate thread for comments on their live coverage. If not.. well...we have a landfill area.

Glass Blown Open coverage for me technically has been fine. I buffer about 30-45min before watching and I have no idea if that helps with anything but the quality of the streaming has been great overall. Terry & Robert (team TBob?) are proving to be more than capable. I hope they work together more often.

My ongoing suggestions still exist, top 10-20 scores more often, would love to see player profiles (career earnings, stats, bio, etc, etc), itbn (in the bag now, this tournament), someone in the gallery for short interviews, observations, etc.

Another crew covering the chase card would help replace the necessary verbiage during lulls with the lead card. I realize we're probably a few years from that happening. But that's one of the obvious areas that could greatly impact the overall production.

I'm not so crazy about this new camera angle being used quite often when players drive. Seeing a side view captures the facial expression of the player, but we don't see the initial flight of the disc. Perhaps not staying on that particular angle so long might help, but I'm guessing most would prefer a more slightly behind the player angle when driving.

Otherwise a solid production, thank you providing the coverage!

GBO live coverage is being produced wholly by SmashboxxTV.

Nice GBO FPO coverage. Love the close up camera work on the drama, good stuff! At one point I saw 3500+ live viewers, is that an FPO record?

I just wish they would have banned the use of phones for the audience, so that the cell signal would have been better. Or is there some Xth amendment in US which forbids that?

Thanks for the kind words and suggestions. We were extremely happy with the coverage for this year's GBO.

I tried to be very quick with any shots where I went from reaction to catch as to not miss much of the flight. And I know not everyone loves it.

This weekend when we had backups we almost always covered the 2nd card cause they were right there. But having another camera on another card would always be fun and useful. It is what I wanted to do with the hole 16 cam that we had up for a few hours.
