The first live video broadcast in the history of the Snowball Derby, the most prestigious short track race in North America, has come to an end. 51 TV closed down four days of live video coverage Sunday afternoon with a successful broadcast of the 47th Annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway (FL).
Speed51.com and its parent company, 51 Sports, LLC., are aware that there were users who may have experienced technical difficulties at times. Those issues were out of our control, but you can be sure that the entire 51 company will work diligently to correct these type of problems in the future.
Overall, despite some problems experienced by users, the live broadcast has been coined a success by many race fans, drivers and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Tony Stewart, who claimed the broadcast "looked great" in a post on Twitter.
Nine cameras, three pit reporters and a team of over 20 staff members worked extremely hard to put together a professional product. Those watching the broadcast witnessed a two-hour pre-race show, in-car audio, in-car video, aerial shots, nine camera angles and replays of all of the thrilling action.
