Did anyone see the Red Bull, straight line rhythym section challenge James Stewart this weekend??? That commentator girl, was very proffessional.....
The second stream was a test of whats to come. SCORE is working on it.The second stream George setup this year at the road crossing was cool and hopefully they do a lot more of that in the future. Maybe have channels at different mile markers so you can switch between the start, and the course.
VIVA MEXICO!!!The best thing I recall about Jorge Anthill was him going over the SF250 course with Jose Grijalva a couple of years back, Jorge has ZERO interest or ability in wanting to properly pronounce Spanish names, he butchered the crap out of everything he could, almost like he was trying to do bad.
Broadcast TV particularly on over the air time buys isn't an effective way to cover the sport. Particularly give the delay. For narrow/niche market sports broadcast is done. It's likely going to generate some bigger numbers but those aren't the market who would buy KMC Wheels and King Shocks. The more mass market type, Toyo for example or BFG it's cheap do get in on low demand time buy slots. But that's not where this market is.Yep. It can be done. All they need to do is pay the licensing fees and rights to rebroadcast and they can charge all the advertising time they want to while producing and streaming the show...
Isn't there an issue with photogs not being allowed to post/advertise on RDC due to their ownership? Please correct me or clarify....Are there any professional photos of the race/cars posted anywhere? Seams odd that all the killer photographers that use to post on RDZ are not sharing.
The way IP law works they can't be selective about who they protect their IP with. Has to be consistent. If they let little guys slide it hurts their ability to enforce against big guys. Unfortunate but it is the way the legal world treats stuff like this.Prior to this 1000 we were told by the score licensing people to remove any "Score" or "Baja 1000" from our website. We'd be allowed to use it if we paid $2500 for a short term.
Sheesh, we barely make bucks off racing, I do it because I love it, to help mentor new racers, and to teach them the Baja ways. And we're trying to bring new racers to score! Many we've assisted have gone on to race bikes on their own, race Petes trucks, and even buy their own race cars.
I'm in a far better position than you to know what is and is not possible in the realm of entertainment and broadcast technology. Even from the middle of Baja it's possible to get images and coverage out. In the big leagues we do it with sat and microwave. It's not cheap but it's available.Not true but you can go with that if you want.
Cool, whats the link for your coverage of the next race?I'm in a far better position than you to know what is and is not possible in the realm of entertainment and broadcast technology.

Inmarsat has global BGAN service. Groundcontrol also has several solutions. Narrow markets like professional karting use it for live audio streams. Check that out for your rally coverage if you guys have the budget. It's what a lot of remotes use for lower cost uplink. Not cheap but readily available. That doesn't cover the distribution but that gets it from the event. If you are at NAB this year there are a lot of solutions.I will chime in here and say this...
Is there some things SCORE can improve on? Absolutely! But until you have actually walked in their shoes, and yes I have, it's pretty damn easy to sit hear and pass judgment not actually knowing how hard it is to provide quality media coverage in remote locations.
It's got nothing to do with IP law. SCORE could choose to do low cost or no cost licensing deal if they wanted to. They also might have some contractutal issues someplace but there is nothing in US IP law that prevents them from setting different rates for different licensees including no cost.The way IP law works they can't be selective about who they protect their IP with. Has to be consistent. If they let little guys slide it hurts their ability to enforce against big guys. Unfortunate but it is the way the legal world treats stuff like this.
