For those of you who have enjoyed the "full coverage" sumo
videos on banzuke.com, I've finally got myself set up to do some video
capture, so the videos are back! Many thanks to Ngozi Robinson for her
efforts over the last few basho.
At http://www.banzuke.com/video/ you'll find videos starting at
about halftime on Day 10. The last of Day 11's video files have just been
uploaded. Day 12 will be edited and posted soon.
As an experiment, I'm trying a couple of new things. First, I'm
offering both high and low resolution videos of each bout. The hi-res
versions are about 3x larger than the lo-res, but they are full 640x480
resolution, for viewers with lots of time and/or fast connections. Also, I'm
providing files for the replays of each bout, so users can see the slow
motion views and alternate camera angles. I'll do this for the rest of this
basho, to see whether folks find the extra files useful.
Any comments, suggestions, or other input are welcome. I'll do
what I can to provide whatever users would like to see.
For reasons unknown, I'm not able to post to the SML from my
normal email address (dmelton at banzuke.com). I've subscribed with one of my
other addresses, just to see if I can get a message to the list.
