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.
