    Broadcast quality for PSL playoffs and final in Pakistan

    Do you guys think we will get decent video quality during the PSL matches in Pakistan. Looking at the previous matches held in Pakistan, the quality wasn't that great.

    Last time, the production team refused to go to Pakistan for the final and hence we had a lower quality broadcast compared to the rest of the PSL matches.

    PCB should ensure that there is a clause which prevents production teams from chickening out at the last minute, such as docking 90% of their fees.

    Do we know if the production team is willing to go to Pakistan ? I am more concerned with the fact that we still dont have HD cameras..

    Here in the UK the broadcast quality was dismal for the first day or two. However, it then picked up and got better. However, its not HD or anything near.

    PTV sports production will be horrible and certainly take away some of the fun for the viewers.

    The broadcast for last year's Final was fine.



    The picture was slightly darker than normal, but I believe it was mentioned that was a stadium lighting issue and something even the people at the ground complained about.

    Honestly if you are going to watch this on PTV sports then your are going to get a crappy picture no matter what. Geo sports is much better if you are watching in Pakistan.

    The broadcast quality will be in HD, if Sunset Vine doesn't come to Pakistan, PCB will hire same group which produced WXi matches.

    PCB needs to get involve one of the local media group, I'm sure with trained staff and latest technology, they can do what Channel 9 is doing in Australia. They have trucks, which includes all the tech and goes from stadium to stadium and broad the matches.

    PSL Broadcasting for Playsoff and final

    So guys, who is broadcasting the games in pakistan? Last year the final match quality was weak, hopefully this time is better so we can hear the crowd and watch the games in a better quality. Are the same people who broadcasted the games in UAE travelling to Pakistan ?

    No really. It will be quality of same as of WXI tour. Also all the commentators are coming except Danny Morrison. Fleming was already gone and Ganga was replacement for him.

    I think the flood lights are outdated or something because it looks darker then the UAE leg.

    This is how the PCB should be broadcasting all domestic matches in Pakistan

    This is where the PCB comes in to do their job

    I mean how hard is it to get HD quality cameras (even for PTV sports)? Like the BCCI has its own production (or however that works, I think they sell the rights or something), PCB can do it too.

    Not worth it for two matches a year..Best to focus the budget on other things until we can get more matches.

    They money is there because there are viewers. There are people in the stands and all around the world to watch.

    That brings in sponsor and TV rights money.

    That simply isn't in the case for normal run of the mill Pakistani domestic tournaments.

    Same here. Couldn’t hear the crowd. Video was flickering too as Cricketjoshila mentioned. Don’t know the technicalities behind it though, assumed its something to do with D sports.

    I'm not talking about just these 2 matches, talking about domestic cricket as a whole. Even the U19 match was broadcasted on Youtube between Pak U19 and Aus U19. Something like that would suffice.

    Your right, it isn't the case for Pakistani domestic tournaments. This is where the PCB needs to do their job and incentivize people to come out to the ground, create rivalries. Need to pump money into the domestic cricket and I think people will come out to watch. Maybe not all the matches or even the 4-day game (even when tests were played in Pakistan stadiums were hardly full).

    Pakistan has a population of 210+ million people. That is no joke, marketed well, I'm sure the sponsors will start rolling in. Need to build more grounds around the country. The northern parts of Pakistan are beautiful and would be awesome to have a stadiums there. I think Pakistan is one of the few countries of the world where we could have pitches for all conditions almost.

    Due to poor weather at stadium, that's what they claim.

    Hearing the crowd was a problem last year as well (actually think it's a bit better this year around).

    Yeah, I'm not sure it's because the crowd being so far back? It is a full stadium.

    Maybe someone else could explain the logistics behind the scene?
