In my opinion, this is the easiest thing to do to make a big difference. The BWF never seems to realize the problem. Maybe the officials never have to watch matches on TV, because they have tickets to watch live all the time.

You cannot seriously want to watch a whole match filmed through a fisheye lense like some of the comments there. Nice addition for sure but you cannot even see where the shots land ...

Viewing angles like these are what I like. Capturing the sound of shots and movements also makes it a better experience. If possible, filter the sound of the noisy crowd Ultra-slow motion in most cases is a waste of time and money. The Chinese broadcasters are notorious for this.

I think most camera positions can be lowered. High camera position gives a clear view of the whole court but not the sense of the height of the shuttle. Also, I don't mind watching a few points from the side angle, just above the net.
By the way, Lin Dan handled the interview nicely, even saluted German beer.

They should have install cameras to watch all the lines, camera can be more accurate and this can replace all the line judges. The most important is accuracy isn't it?

I don't really like the classic viewing angle, I feel that it is way too far away from the court, and it's difficult to see how the shuttle is hit, for example how close it is to the net or how high the lift is. Sometimes I even mistake a short push for a lift and vice versa. It's impossible to see that! And also the racket movement, deception is also difficult to detect from the angle. It gives a decent overview but it's like watching ants, especially with the terrible resolution / quality of most matches.

The view posted above is my favorite. You get to see not only the explosiveness of the players, but it covers all corners of movement sufficiently. The closeness of the camera and mike to the court just makes the shot sounds crispier and more whip like and shows how fast the hand moves. Exactly how it should be. For me the sound of smashes is a great factor in watching matches live.
onto my rant:
Badminton is viewed as barely a sport at my university. The courts are situated in a multipurpose hall and they recieve such low priority that the nets are torn down at the slightest opportunity.
I can't blame the higher ups for thinking so too when all you see are lovesick couples just happy to get the shuttle across. Apart from when the official club plays, the standard of play is so low that people who want to try out the sport just wonder how fun it can get.
It's quite a vicious cycle, for the sport to recieve more popularity, the standard of play needs to be better globally and at a grass-roots level. For that to happen, there need to be more training camps set by semi-professionals(at least) in regular intervals for people to learn and get better. For that to happen, there needs to be more funding directed for this very cause. For more funding, the sport needs to gain more popularity to bring in more revenue. AAAAH. This frustrates me.
Honestly, how can people watch a CY/FHF LYD/JJS thriller and still think badminton is a wimpy sport? I'm doing my part encouraging all my friends to play badminton. 3 of my american room mates now play and they are pretty good now if I may say so myself.

myic90, you are doing exactly what you should be doing: Spreading the word to your friends and encouraging the sport locally.
It might be better if we were all millionaire philanthropist who could hire professional coaches from Asia to grow badminton in North America. But since most of us are not, the best we can do is to be good role models. A confident, generous talent is one that others will emulate.
Keep doing what you are doing and Good luck!
