Football quality

      I am currently shooting football games on a canon vixia hf r60 and using an SDHC 32gb card.
      I start and stop play by play to have individual files.
      I upload to dropbox to get the video to the coaches but the quality suffers.

      What are my options for the easiest/fastest way to distribute the original high quality to the coaches. Their goal is to watch it on a large tv and pause and rewind frequently.

      It’s the formats that set the quality – so what format are you uploading them as?

      Not sure what you mean by format.
      The files are .MTS files
      The video camera is set on AVCHD. I transfer the files from the sd card to my computer and then drag and drop them into dropbox. They look great on my screen.
      What I think is happening is that the coaches are watching the files on dropbox and not downloading them and then watching.
      I tried pulling the files into a video editing software and outputting to dvd. When I played it it was all compressed looking.
      Any thoughts on how to produce the best image? Do I need to convert the video files before recording to dvd?

      You’re going to need to ask the coaches how they’re viewing the footage. Dropbox does have a player but the quality is low res. .MTS files can be viewed with Media Player, but you probably should combine the files in an NLE and render out an MP4. I shoot lacrosse games and before transferring the footage to the contractor, convert them into an MP4 at a relatively low bit rate, around 4 Mbps in Adobe Premiere Pro. That keeps the size of the files manageable.

      Quality also depends on video in which format it will be created or camera quality also matters see live sport high quality video
