    MBB Cyclones.tv Replay Information

    I'm not going to be able to see the ISU MBB exhibition game this Sunday so inquired into if and how quickly replays will be posted for the games. The following is the response I got for those interested. I personally didn't know about the encoding process part:

    "If the broadcast is aired on Cyclones.tv exclusively, we can archive those as soon as possible. Because these are huge HD files that have to be converted to a web format, the encoding process takes 12 hours or more to encode. When we post the archives of these early non-nonconference games isn’t a fine science. We’ll get it up as fast as we can."

    "For conference games or other games that air on regional or national TV, we have to wait 48 hours to post an archive. "

    That blows, why would it be during the football game...?

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    My bad. I meant to say this Sunday instead of Saturday. I've made the change. But yeah, the reason I'm going to miss it IS actually because of a football game. I've got to go to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the Bears game this Sunday because Fox has the stupid Packers game on in Eastern Iowa. I've got to choose one or the other and MBB at least has a replay while I don't have one for the Bears.

    I also like to doublecheck on this replay stuff because just when you think you know what they'll do, something will surprise you. For instance, I figured that when I missed a Cyclones.tv volleyball game that it woudn't be a problem because I can always just watch the replay right?....... wrong. CJL has them not put up replays because she doesn't want other teams scouting her team. While I don't think this demand would ever fly with the high demand MBB team, you can never be too careful.

    Bears over Cyclones? I was going to give you flak about this but then I remembered that it is an exhibition game.

    Carry on!

    Honestly, anything other than an exhibition game, I probably wouldn't do it, so I carry on. I'll look forward to watching the replay.

    Good idea, but unfortunately I have no IPad and I'd rather immerse myself in one and watch the other later than watch both at same time.

    Video quality is great. It is the idiot camera guy who likes to play with the zoom and not show the court that you have to worry about. Hopefully that guy isnt back and they've talked about how to properly film a BB game.

    I'm not too worried about that stuff as they are obviously learning and getting better with everything. I remember how bad the camerawork with the volleyball games was when Cyclones.tv started, but they've obviously learned and are a lot better now than when they started. I hope the fans are willing to give a little grace with this stuff because I know a lot of this stuff will be dificult at first and will have a learning curve. No matter now mad you get, I bet you that the last games will be way better done than the first ones.
