Changing the way you view a ballgame

by Bill Chuck on August 9, 2013

The folks at Replay Technologies are going to be changing the way you watch baseball and other sports on television and it looks terrific.

According to their website:

Our proprietary freeD™ technology, which stands for Free Dimensional Video, will enable the next evolutionary step in video and the moving image.

Up until now- Video, broadcasting, and film had consisted of cameras capturing two dimensional image data, which is essentially a sequence of changing flat “pixels” that represent reality. These images are then processed by either post-production facilities, or by ever-growing consumer applications, and end up transmitted and shared digitally.

Our technology works by capturing reality not as just a two dimensional, or stereoscopic representation, but as a true three dimensional scene, comprised of three dimensional “pixels” that faithfully represent the fine details of the scene. This information is stored as a freeD™ database, which can then be tapped to produce (render) any desired viewing angle from the detailed information.

This incredible technology will really enhance the viewing pleasure of the TV watcher at home — it may be too volatile to show on the scoreboard at games because umpires will resist the truly all-seeing eye.
