I wish this video was more focused on the systems and logistics of live tv news and entertainment like SNL, Concerts, Thanksgiving Parade, Breaking news? - and not so much on sports (specifically on F1 considering they already have a dedicated video out about it)

One interesting aspect of F1 is depending on the previous years constructor standings. Each team is guaranteed a certain amount of on on screen time. Meaning that as well as balancing the on camera action and narrative, the producer also has to make sure each time gets their on camera time. It's why you sometimes get odd cuts to follow a car out of the action for a couple of laps.

I think you should also cover eSports broadcast. A more digital aspect to getting shots on top of the out of game shots. I think the rest of it is pretty similar tho, just want to note how difficult observing is and how limitless shots and angles may be in a virtual 3d space.

Please stop with this Brilliant stuff. Honestly it teaches you nothing and still people claim they know machine learning (and all models there are) while the CV of someone who might have done years worth of DNN lacks points in logistic regression or random forrest. No researcher knows all methods but someone who has taken a brilliant course could sell superficial knowledge as deep knowledge. And believe me real researchers would and could not do this.

Loved the details in this vid, thanks! Though I wish there would have been even a little talk about the sound mix as part of the production, in addition to cameras and data transmission. In a time when most people’s personal experience with capturing live video is from a smartphone which automatically combines video and sound, this is not inherently the case in professional production. Many of the cams are shooting very long shots and the “local” sound at the operators location is either not captured at all, or would not be a good choice for the final mix to match the image framing after zooming in, etc. So there are hundreds of microphones of all types being mixed as part of that broadcast. Since some of the stock footage was of sound mixers would have been cool to address it also!

So is that why so far this season F1 has been so terrible at showing live overtakes compared to the previous era? Primarily just switching between those cameras on track one to next rather then all feeds in between those, that have been currently mostly used for replays.

I see that live TV has no other way to work - they have a single time slot on a single channel. But with the Internet, allowing people to choose what to watch and when to watch it - I would *love* to have access to the raw data - all the cameras, so I can choose to focus on a driver of my own choosing. It would not even be that difficult, you can stream an arbitrary number of videos to youtube, or Twitch.

I’m surprised that they still use helicopters. Seems like those days would be close to becoming extinct. Just seems like drones are getting so much better and are so much safer for everyone. I mean, with all the moving parts already, a helicopter is just another part that can go wrong, and if that part fails, it’s not only expensive, but lots of people could die. I don’t know much about drones- other than they can vary in size from finger tip to airplane size, so I’m sure they can still be just as dangerous if they needed a camera that large, but it seems like technology is on the brink of being able to make cameras and drones work in unison to get the amazing shots without the need for the heavy equipment 🤷‍♀️

In the US, they have replaced the cable cam for auto racing. Drones however are restricted to how high they can fly. Operator must maintain visual at all times. Helicopters and blimps can fly higher for larger area coverage. Larger lenses on helicopters = better closeups from a distance.

Great video! Please do a video about the logistics of the Olympics over the summer. A sporting movement with the best intensions that is poorly executed every single time. The debt that host cities incur is not helped by the convoluted ticketing system that leaves many tickets unsold. It would be great if the Olympics could be fixed so that they are less of a burden on the host city.

@Wendover Productions lol, 'Joined 1 Day ago' and 0 content... I guess any channel can just call itself Wendover Productions and try to scam people huh. Seems like a flaw in the SVfrom system (Edit - this is in reference to a spam reply to my initial comment by an account calling itself "Wendover Productions" that was clearly fake, but I suspect it's going to get removed since I reported it, so here's the context)
