Great to see VEX returning to TV again this year! If only FIRST would try and do something similar.

It's a little harder to pitch a 2 part special to CBS or ESPN....

So excited for this broadcast. I had a blast volunteering at VEX Worlds this year, and I'm so happy the rest of the world will get to see a little slice of such a wonderful event.

Two Champs wouldn't be an issue for a pre-recorded broadcast. The bigger issue is that VRC is simply more TV friendly than FRC. You can capture all the action of a VRC match in a single camera shot. Obviously they do switch camera angles during this VRC broadcast, but each of them still shows all four robots and all the game pieces at any given time. That makes the game much more TV friendly than when compared to FRC. Our community broadcasts have settled upon split-screen formats or fish eye views, but those leave a lot to be desired compared to traditional sports broadcasts. Most FRC games simply have too many game pieces (and too many robots) to track at once on a single camera shot. You either get a wide panned angle where you can't really see the mechanics and detail of any machine, or small local shots that leave out most of the field.

Barring a game like 2014, where the action can be centralized around very limited game pieces, FRC will remain a live spectator sport more than a TV friendly one.

I'm watching this wondering how much IFI/Vex spent on ads...

Re: VEX Worlds on CBS June 11 at 2pm!

Any way to watch this after the fact? Does CBS do any archiving of tv shows?

Re: VEX Worlds on CBS June 11 at 2pm!

All in all, I was very surprised and pleased by the amount of work that went into this broadcast. It captured the feeling of FIRST almost exactly, leaving a disheartened and sour taste in my mouth. VEX did an amazing job, don't get me wrong, but FIRST could probably do something similar.

Fantastic job to the VEX teams, this was an incredible ride! Seeing STEM on TV, with a program (and commercials) that forwarded the cause tastefully, of inclusion by inspiration, really shows what all of this is about, independent of program. Kudos to you!

About that HEXBug Water Game though....

From my understanding it will be available for viewing online sometime this week. I'm sure a link will get posted here once available.

You can capture all the FRC action if you don't switch the camera view to inside of a field element you can barely see out of.
