Great piece, thank you very much!

Love this behind-the-scenes stuff!

As always, having knowledge inspires understanding. My understanding has been enhanced by this article and it also makes it harder to sit on my couch and be highly critical when one realizes the skill required to deal with the intricacies and chaos of producing a live TV/sports broadcast.

Rock on, Pressdog and rock on, Versus!

Excellent work, Pressdog!

I work in live broadcasting, and I think that when most people criticize an announcer's gaffe or other imperfections, they often don't understand just how crazy difficult pulling off a live broadcast really is. Especially with something as unpredictable as sports.

Obviously, it's still the broadcasting team's job to do things with excellence. But as DZ said, if people have a clearer understanding of how talented these people are, how hard they work, and how hard the job truly is, there can be some forgiveness when mistakes are made.

Thanks for the thanks. Yeah, it's seriously juggling cats to put it all on the air. I think Versus has done a good job of accepting comments from fans. Everything I hear from fans about their work is 85% or 90% positive, which is about as good as it can ever get. Also, I think the coverage sometimes gets scapegoated for putrid races. In other words, if it looks bad on TV, the coverage is blamed, when it may just have been a bad race.

I noticed something this year. Among the onboard cameras that Versus decides to install on six cars each race, there have always been three drivers in particular: Hunter-Reay, Wheldon and Kanaan. Always. Maybe there's a contract between their sponsors and the series? We all know the partnership IZOD has with RHR, of course, but also Wheldon and Kanaan. With TK there's Apex Brasil as well, and the sponsor is visible in the cockpit. Could it be the reason for their mandatory onboards?

Excellent piece Pdog. If you spent as much time on this as it seems, it shows and is appreciated.

(If you didn't, put down the scotch once in a while and write more of these;}

I spent as much time as it seems, otta, and thanks. (I'll keep hold of the Scotch bottle nonetheless.)

What a great take on a world we viewers know so little about! It looks so easy when sitting on the couch at home; you've allowed us to see that it's anything but.

One big problem I have, especially demonstrated again in Japan is Arute constantly giving the wrong driver's name! How is a casual fan (or even one who is in the know) supposed to follow the quick-paced action when he's constantly feeding us mis-information?

This can be kind of complicated to answer but in simplist terms when programs are run or installed there ends up being some bits of each of the programs written to the hard drive here and there and everywhere...........:)

Oh my!!! You are just too true to be good. How do you manage to write and research on such wonderful things? You have inspired me to work harder now. I shall try as much as possible to enjoy life to the fullest and be satiated with the wonderful things that are around me, which I have been unaware of until now.

This year’s mild winter may be finally over, but that doesn’t make this new amazing product by AD Boivin any less cool. It’s called Track N Go, and it’s simply a continuous track for add-on each wheel.
