I've help setup a few PAPA events on the tech side. You guys have no idea how much work goes into setting up multiple games for a stream. Heck, with me streaming one game a week, there is at least 30-40 minutes of setup. For example, I traveled over and hour last night to stream and help setup a RBION with a color dmd. I had 10-12 viewers for the night. That's a lot of work, handful of viewers.
Now the bigger tournaments have more coverage, but that's even more work. It would be great to have dedicated commentators, but who is going to want to travel to a tournament and not participate. With the current model, there is no financial support or incentive to do so. If you guys want better coverage in Florida, I could do it. I would need the funds for at least 8 overhead playfield camcorders, 8 dmd cams, 8 mic stands, a faster dedicated computer, hundreds of foot in hdmi cable, several hdmi splitters/amps, and three high end HDMI switchers. And that's just for the setup. If a tournament wanted coverage, I would want a minimum for travel expenses and setup. THEN, I would need dedicated volunteers to help for the commentary.
You may ask yourself why I haven't just gone and done this all on my own? When you take a hobby like pinball/arcade collecting, and make it a choir rather than a hobby, it stops being fun. Heck, just by streaming every Wednesday I get burnt out in on pinball. What is my point of typing all this up? I'm trying to tell you to be thankful for the coverage we have. There are only a few handful of people that have the tech and desire to help cover pinball. I thought this last PAPA coverage was great. They improved the overall quality with a higher bandwidth 60fps, more coverage, etc.
