Ranking the MiLB.TV Cameras: Triple-A Pacific Coast League

Posted By Carson Cistulli On April 24, 2013 @ 4:21 pm In Lists and Rankings | No Comments

Yesterday, in these electronic pages, the author published a catalog and ranking of all the main cameras from each International League club’s MiLB.TV feed. What follows is a similar exercise, except for the Pacific Coast League. Posts for the remaining minor leagues will follow in subsequent days.

Note that each club’s main (usually center-field) camera has been evaluated according to three criteria, as follows:

Shot Angle
In which more central and lower is generally preferred.

Shot Size
In which closer up and not longer is generally preferred.

Video Quality
In which a higher resolution, nicer graphics, etc., are generally preferred.

The cameras are ranked as follows: the bottom three, the top three, and then the rest. Some brief notes follow the collection of screenshots.

Bottom Three
15. Las Vegas 51s (New York Mets)

Las Vegas

14. New Orleans Zephyrs (Miami Marlins)

New Orleans

13. Oklahoma City Redhawks (Houston Astros)

Oklahoma City

*****

Top Three
3. Memphis Red Birds (St. Louis Cardinals)

2. Sacramento River Cats (Oakland Athletics)

1. Reno Aces (Arizona Diamondbacks)

The Rest (Alphabetical Order)

Colorado Springs Sky Sox (Colorado Rockies)

Fresno Grizzlies (San Francisco Giants)

Iowa Cubs (Chicago Cubs)

Notes
• While there are 16 teams in the Pacific Coast League, only 15 cameras are included here. So far as the author can tell, there has been no feed available yet this season for Padres affiliate Tucson.

• One feed (Sacramento) offers a wider feed than the others, 640 pixels as opposed to 480. Another (Omaha) has a smaller feed — just 315 pixels tall, as opposed to 360. All other feeds are 480 by 360 pixels.

• While only one International League club (Charlotte) lacked a center-field camera, here we find five clubs (Iowa, Las Vegas, Nashville, New Orleans, and Oklahoma City) without one.
