@hawaiiand, @drect, I got some questions about UDUBB HIGH STAKES 2 PPV

What's the audio situation looking like? No Mask was not good and people were super mad about the money they gave y'all.

Will we be able to rewatch/ catch battles we missed after the event?

If this is like the first High Stakes ppv, then that sounds awesome. But if it's like No Mask, let me know now so I can do something else with my Sunday.

What's the camera angles looking like?

Wassup, thanks for asking.

The No Mask event was a matter of not having the right audio cables at the time. During the start of the event we had someone run out and purchase what they needed to run the audio through the DJs mixer and into the stream. We also used a company, not to be named, to handle the filming and broadcast.. Im not passing the blame to them for not having the right cables, but none of the equipment used was RapGrids except the cable we bought halfway through.. And if anyone remembers, after we ran through the DJ's mixer, the audio was much better.

This time around we have purchased everything ourselves (camera, mixers, cables, etc) and are flying to New Jersey with everything. So we are much better prepared.

If you have specific questions, feel free to PM me. If I can provide a broad explanation to anything, I'll gladly do so here for everyone to see.

I'm much more confident in what the product will be this time around, but I cannot say with %100 certainty that it will be perfect. But re: the audio issue from No Mask, we completely understand what happened and are better prepared this time around for there to be no audio issues.

Hope that helps.

@hawaiiand @Drect
Yes, some time after the live event the videos will be made available to re-watch. There will be some downtime between the live event and them being available as 'video on demand' as we upload them to Vimeo for VOD, but it should be faster than our normal VOD turnaround since we'll be at the venue and capturing the live stream ourselves for upload (vs waiting for the leagues to send to us).

My understanding is that UW will be recording their own versions of the battles for the YT release, and the VOD offering will be what we stream for the live ppv.

Let me know any other questions.

My understanding is that Ustream themselves were at the event and handled it completely for UW including the filming, switching, stream production and delivery. In the interest of full disclosure, we will not be using Ustream unless there is some kind of disaster between now and the event.

In my opinion, this event will be more like the High Stakes ppv than the No Mask, but I wanted to make the distinction so you can weigh your Sunday options yourself.

Any idea of a start time for the event?

No idea. Those kind of logistics, we have to depend on the league organizing the event.

Whatever gets announced, I'm personally adding the 1 hour "this is battle rap" buffer, with another 1 hour "lets be realistic, this is battle rap" backup buffer.

I'm looking forward to this event but I'm a bit dissapointed to see they aren't doing it with the team they did for the first High Stakes event.

Seriously nothing against Rap Grid etc, I like those guys but that first High Stakes PPV was so good and still the best battle rap PPV there has been imo. I feel like that might be because they shelled out a lot for a big proffesional team though and it didn't seem like they ended up profitting off of that event atall (it basically wiped them out until recently).

All that being said the responses here are encouraging. I want to get the ppv because Suge vs Hitman but it being a Sunday means I'll have to stay up until like 3 hours before I need to wake up and go to work (damn americans with your behind us timezones).

I haven't discussed directly with the UW team myself, but thats my understanding, that it was a big cost to get Ustream to come out to the event and its not affordable for every event. I didn't quote the part about profitability because I don't know for a fact, but I have a serious suspicion that it wasn't profitable after paying that cost.
