So, this year at a trade show, I saw the QB perspective view-- that is going to be every bit the essential viewing as the all-22, in terms of evaluating play. They showed a play from the normal angle, then cut to the QB cam to see what he saw-- gives you a whole new appreciation for how tough their job is.

The devil you say?!? :shock:
;)

I have been saying this since the first HD game. The primary angle should be from the end zones. Zoom in somewhat, maybe use some wider angle lenses that don’t distort uncomfortably. Primary angle order: Skycam, goalpost cams, then sideline cams for replays.

With gigapixel cameras possible you should be able to use any angle and zoom in appropriately and get amazing detail without distortion. After play processing will need to be a big part with these types of cameras. If they put a sensor in the football, you could probably use computer code to grab the perfect zoom ratio every time and even instantly for live action from any angle.

And don’t forget about hockey, which needs the skycam fix the most. Hockey is awful to watch. 1/8 of the screen, 50% of the time, everytime is imagination time! And the networks and NHL think it is perfectly acceptable to allow the puck, sticks, skates, and legs to disappear from view for a sizable portion of the game. The rink is so damn small that the net angle is the obvious choice for the HD camera or skycam. The net needs to be the primary viewing angle in hockey.

I can’t wait for this Steeler game now!
