AHL Live upgraded?

While at work I went to watch the Monarchs-Bruins game today on AHL live and it was completely different! Bigger screen, better resolution. The window it popped up in had fast forward and rewind features as well as scoreboard display and the game was being shot on broadcast camera instead of a feed from the scoreboard.

Anyone else have this upgrade? I watch the monarchs game on wednesday and it was the same old crappy feed, but tonight it was great! watchable! Was even able to watch the game without sound (due to being at work)

I hate to piss on your parade but nothing has been upgraded.

The feeds are all based on the home team. What you are seeing is the product the Providence Bruins produce. I have heard the one for the Texas Stars is very good as well. But most will be the same old crappy feeds, some worse than others.

Last night I watched Abbotsford @ Rochester and the quality was no better than poor quality of the Heat home games. The worst part of AHL Live for me is some of the commentators, the guy last night for Rochester would have been decent if you wasn't a blind homer, I mean I expect a homer but the dude at one point was making it sound like the only reason the Ameriks are only .500 because teams play them harder than other teams because they are so good. Of course them losing had nothing to do with playing the team that is currently #1 in the AHL, nah that would be crazy!

It depends on which team. Hershey has the higher quality player. I know Toronto, Hamilton, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton, Adirondack, WBS, and Abbotsford have the old low quality player.

Bridgeport just upgrade to HD camera as they also have a new center ice HD jumbotron , thus their ahllive feeds are now top notch.

I watched the B-Port Providence game in B-Port and they had that same thing as the 1'st poster.

Have watched every other away game and no one else did.

Albany has the new one for home games played in Atlantic City (or at least today), but the old school interface for Albany games. Figures. Buffered quite a bit today, possible it's on our end.

Games in Portland have the new player. Games in Springfield also have the new player

Now I just continue to wait for Manchester to come around....

Every Western AHL team has migrated to the new setup
Every Eastern AHL team has also migrated, with the following exceptions:
Manchester
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton

A team upgrading doesn't necessarily mean that they've changed to an HD feed, just they are now using a flash player. Some teams have HD cameras, but most don't...so you're left with a stretched SD feed.

Talk to someone from the Monarchs today and they said they're working on it and should be on the new video player soon.

Glad to see the AHL finally do something about that video quality. I'm not expecting HD feeds but at least now it's watchable and enjoyable.
