The mic is, of course, part of the camera and it is very sensitive but it also does not have any adjustment for gain.

As I said, the streaming this year is baby steps. After the Sano, I'll try to see what can be done to improve the sound for the next time we do tis.

Mike,
The general coverage was great, but the sound could be better. But hey, for the first time out, you guys did a great job !! I know it must be hard to get everything in . Thank you all for your hard work to bring this live coverage to us.

No problem, Greg. We're just thrilled to get the chance to see the action at all!

Coming in crisp and clear here in Cincinnati. Thanks for rotating the camera slightly so we can see the driver who is qualifying.

Guys,

Check out the live video stream now. I changed to Adobe Media Live encoding and it's at least twice as good as before, quality-wise; maybe even better than that.

Michael, Cheater,

I believe having the streaming video available directly thru Slotblog will increase the bandwidth thru Slotblog directly. This can quickly exceed Slotblog's monthly bandwidth allotment if not controlled.

It's best to go to the Ustream website to receive the streaming video rather than use Slotblog to view the video.

For those on Slotblog, be sure you view the video thru the "Ustream" website rather than directly thru this Slotblog website.

Thanks again, Cheater, for providing a very good video/audio streaming telecast live from the Sano.

Keith :rolleyes:

Michael Mazur,

I had to delete your direct stream through Slotblog as it is exceeding the forum's bandwidth. Sorry!

Guys, please use Ustream, as it works fine there. Use the link posted by John Gorski a couple posts above this one, thanks!

Pete,

Alas, you cannot get in the raffle now. The prizes are being awarded right now.

I'll talk to Swiss about next year, though.

Video quality and sound is much better today (Sunday) that the two previous days. Only suggestion I have is to possibly give the race director a micrphone during the race and possibly place another near the dirver's panel so the audio is not so much background noise but more understandable.

Great effort and results!

So much DRAMA for such small cars....

Had one last thing to post, Greg... next time you plan on streaming an event, give me a heads-up and iI would gladly have recorded the whole thing if you would have let me know the schedule!!!! This would be a nice addition to any racing event and I can imagine if you could get the stream recorded with some live in-person footage it could very well make for a good DVD...

I'm still personally enjoying the R4 video. It would be nice if there were more DVDs of slot car racing... IMO.
