    ***How to Improve CycloneTV***

    Alright, I'm lukewarm with CycloneTv.

    Let this thread be constructive criticism to make it better.

    Mine would be to show Paul Rhoads on camera. I hardly saw CPR and would've liked to see his reactions during the game.

    What would you change?

    Re: ***How to Improve CycloneTV***

    Step 1: shrink the damn .TV logo
    Step 2: lower the score bar
    Step 3: get rid of the radio stream and actually have someone call the game as a real tv production
    Step 4: don't get you *** kicked by the FCS
    Step 5: beer

    Force the cameraman and director to drink as much as I did and watch that awful feed.

    I guess I'm assuming the Cyclone.TV crew was sober. The broadcast gave no evidence of sobriety from the TV crew

    Fix the replays. They missed a lot of live action while showing replies.

    STOP ZOOMING IN SO FAR.




    STOP SHOWING REPLAYS WHEN WE ARE CLEARLY IN THE JET TEMPO.

    I thought it was really good for the most part. There were a few audio issues and also the graphics could use work.

    Re: ***How to Improve CycloneTV***

    Production needs to understand the game and not go to replay when in two minute drill.

    Fix the sound, not sure why it sounded like John was taking to me on a radio from the 80s.

    Other than that not bad for a production from a 30 to 40 million dollar athletic department.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    Re: ***How to Improve CycloneTV***

    Camera angles need to be set in such a way that those watching can see a play develop. Replays graphics must be trimmed down for time, and the use of replays should not be after every positive yardage play. A little discretion would go a long way to improving the viewer experience. I like John and Eric's audio feed, so that doesn't bother me.

    Just guessing the cy.tv producers/camera people are a little green. Ordinarily this wouldn't be a big deal, but people are accustomed to the network viewing experience that goes with watching college football on ESPN. SO they have a ways to go.

    1. Stop showing effing replays when you know that ISU runs a hurry up offense. 2. Pan out a little more so that the when the camera man has been fooled and can't follow the play, its not quite so evident. 3. Stop showing effing replays...

    Re: ***How to Improve CycloneTV***

    I'm glad it is HD, but.........

    At least for me.....they need to adjust the sound volume. I had to crank it up when I switched to that channel versus any other channel on the tv.

    Need more camera positions, and better overall direction (calling camera shots). I know.....this costs money to get camera operators, but hopefully it will someday get to the point that it is better than the video highlights of high school games we see on the local news on Friday nights. But, it is it's first "real" on tv season so, give it time to grow I guess.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    The replays showed the action while live action was skipped by Neulion. Why did that happen?

    Need a director/practice for the cameraman.

    Sound was weak on HD.
