    Yeah we had a bunch of issues with the wireless mics on some of the live streams. Unfortunately there's no way to monitor it live so unless someone chimes in to let us know during the stream we're screwed. I believe we caught it on most of them though. Out of the 160 or so videos we did I'd say there's less than 10 with audio issues.

    I thought they did a great job. I personally didn't have any issues. Working in the IT field, technology is never flawless and will have hiccups.

    Good job and I appreciate all that you guys did.

    What would you have liked that the crew didn't do? Why do you think the coverage was not good?

    Mostly first day interviews. Cutting out sound when the mic was 1ft away from from the the interviewees. Could not hear many of the responses from the exhibitors. Also why were these recorded in 240? instead of HD? I will say I liked the coverage of all the different exhibitors just the quality of the audio and some video left something out. After watching Justin's public land hunt in Hd I just assumed you guys would interview in HD. You guys do a great job with this site and I feel kinda guilty criticizing your work but I just kinda wanted to point it out in case you guys didn't know.

    I think they did a pretty good job guys. Please keep in mind they are uploading this remotely and are doing everything they can to get the content up as quickly as possible. You are just going to sacrifice some quality doing so...... I was more disappointed in vendors really. A lot of high profile manufacturers seem pretty stagnate. Offering the same products with new colors for 2018 isn't what I would call cutting edge.

    Only the live streams suffered from some quality issues - not because they were recorded that way but because Facebook and YouTube compressed the hell out of them during the stream. Most likely due to bandwidth issues within the convention center while streaming. It's a trade off of getting more content up immediately from the show floor at a lower resolution versus waiting to edit the video and post it hours later at a higher resolution. Since it was our first year doing that much streaming on Day 1 it was a bit of a crap shoot. Next year we'll likely change things up, which means higher quality videos but you'll have a wait a few hours to see them.

    I guess I’m not as picky as the complainers. I watched all the videos on YouTube and thought they were good. Covered quite a bit. I still haven’t gotten through them all. Keep up the good work bhod

    Considering you guys provide a platform for like minded individuals to socialize and share knowledge and stories, video and edit your hunts for our entertainment, and take time out of your experience at ATA to provide video for those of us that cannot attend......All FREE of charge.

    I certainly think you guys did a great job.
