I’m not sure why he always has to be in front of the camera. It makes the interview about him as well as the player, manager or staff member, when it should be solely about who he’s interviewing and what they have to say. 

Not sure you see the media teams at the likes of Hibs or Motherwell camera side when they interview players.

What's the update on Ton TV access for season ticket holders and single game users.

New site launched no tag for Ton TV.

Media section just seems to be Utube videos.

Could have given us some promotional preseason games.

Shouldn't it be? The cameras arrived on the 25th August according to the club's Twitter account. 

About 2 weeks to go until our first competitive home match, would like to think it's been installed and there's at least a couple of tests being planned to see how it works. If there's any issues I'm sure they'll then need investigated.

Watched a bit of Stenny v Dunfermline on Saturday on Facebook and I think it was their Pixellot camera that was doing the filming. Was a bit jolty.

So you'd like to think it's ready to go and there's plans to test it out...

Well, seeing as it's being installed in most grounds simultaneously, they will have a schedule to go through.

Cameras in. Fibre for it was only starting being installed last week in grounds apparently.

Once it's ready, the info will come out.

Agree on the test events though. Supposedly takes a few goes for it to calibrate, to help eliminate the jolting.

Have the BBC picked their first batch of live games yet?

That wee pause between McTear's and The Auctioneers is mildly infuriating.

Also a WEE HINT that McPake might not be the last signing, he'd better fucking not be while we're still about 5 defenders short.


 

Peter Weatherson is the greatest player since Ritchie, and should be assigned 'chairman for life'

I wish the traffic would all stop when we do these interviews

It's fun trying to pick out all the different engine noises though.

It'll be exciting winning every game 5-4 though

I know this thread has largely been about the Youtube content, but it seems the appropriate place to talk about match streaming as well. I really hope they're planning to do a test run of streaming with at least one friendly before competitive games start, both to see how whatever domain we're using holds up with hundreds trying to stream at once considering our track record with websites and just as importantly how watchable the cameras make it.

The Pixellot system, which I assume we are using, has had an awful lot of negative feedback from friendlies which have been shownby other clubs. Seemingly zooming out when it should be zooming in, having terrible issues with glare, sometimes choosing to track a goalkeeper moving at the edge of his box when there's an attack going on at the other end.

The guy who produces Alloa's highlights said he basically had to recalibrate the camera by himself, with no assistance from Pixellot, as the settings were all wrong and causing a much poorer picture quality; I'd be surprised if anyone at Cappielow has the expertise to do the same. While all have had it installed, apparently most Championship clubs are choosing not to use it and will instead have someone operating a camera manually.

We can't go into a competitive game without testing this system and hoping for the best - what little revenue we can make just now is dependent on fans buying streams and if the first run is a disaster then people will decide it's not worth their time or money. Word will quickly travel among away fans as well so it won't just be Morton fans they're losing money from.

Supposedly the system takes a few goes to calibrate itself which should alleviate some of the jerkiness and tracking the wrong area. Makes it essential that there are tests and not just because Morton gonna Morton it.

Interesting you say most championship clubs aren't using it. BBC had reported that only Hearts weren't using it.

East Fife are not using Pixellot.

Doesn't really matter what's being used. 

There's a lot that can go wrong so hoping it all falls into place on the first game of the season is a asking for trouble.

I agree, just saying that they had an existing system so their need for testing isn't as strong.

I'm not coming from any ITK position myself saying that, just from seeing what volunteers/employees at other clubs are saying.

Anyway, our first competitive game at Cappielow is a week tomorrow. Obviously people start from a position of cynicism with this kind of thing where Morton are concerned as it is, but without a test or really anything being said about it in public at all I am not confident of streaming going smoothly.

Should we not also have the streaming site plastered all over the official home page, info on how to sign up to watch games etc by now? Cutting it very fine if they actually want to encourage people to pay for the games.

According to the website our next match is 17 October so you're asking a bit much there.

Noticed that also. We better not hear another moan about budget while they can't be bothered to even try bringing in revenue. Hopeless.

Yeah, I'd have thought it'd be promoted as a big PPV-style event. Return of Morton and all that.

Presumably it wont be on the season ticket? Many would we expect to sign up for a streaming service, 500- 750 ? With lockdown restrictions not allowing you in other homes, it  should encourage more to sign up individually. Would imagine the same amount of Queens fans would sign up for it too. Could easily be 1000+ collectively which could be 10-15k of revenue depending on price.

Id be absolutely buzzing to pay a £10-15  to watch a Morton game next Tues online but you just sense its going to be an absolute feck up. Club better hope its up and running smoothly before the 1st league game otherwise there will be a lot of unhappy season ticket holders to deal with.
