What happens at $25,000?, The Poster Design, High Quality (HQ) Explained

Posted by NexGen Ultimate (Creator)

Thank you!

Congratulations everyone on reaching our $20,000 fundraising goal! It wouldn't be possible without your support.

Seriously though, what happens at $25,000?

We've been in touch with the Easterns Tournament Director and we've decided that if we hit $25,000 we'll add Easterns to the schedule. Easterns plays host to the best college teams from the East Coast on March 23-25.

Please note our all-or-nothing target of $20,000 hasn't changed. We're just saying, "We promised to bring more tournaments beyond Stanford and Centex and if we hit $25,000 we're willing to do it more recklessly and less cautiously."

George Stubbs and his poster 

We're proud to finally reveal the limited-edition George Stubbs poster. Only 100 of these 18"x24", glossy posters will ever be printed so get yours now and we'll have George sign it for you.


To show you size we asked this random girl to hold one for reference. 


HD to HQ rebrand

We've decided to rebrand our streams as High-Quality (HQ) and Standard-Quality (SQ). This is the result of a change in frame size only. It came to our attention that the best results for our planned data-rate of 1500kbps will appear better at frame sizes of 960x542 over 1280x720. The data-rate will remain unchanged and image quality will actually be improved for our premium subscriptions. 

We don't have a sample with ultimate footage, but we've put together this comparison curtesy of our sponsors at Elemental Technologies who are supplying us with their industry leading encoding system.

      How about coverage of some women's games with that extra $5000?

      Posters will be shipped in tubes and we'll make sure the signature stands out. Thanks for supporting.

      The poster looks great! I'm excited. Just a few questions:
      How will the posters be shipped? And will the signature be in a silver-sharpie or something similar so it stands out? Thanks for doing this, I'm very happy to support such a cool project!
