A few months ago, Japan’s public television began using multiple cameras.  The cameras were controlled robotically, and allowed a Matrix-style replay.  Someone in the NFL loved the idea, because it’s coming overseas in time for pigskin.

Free Dimension Video, aka “FreeD”, are instant replays rendered in half a minute, and offer so-called ‘bullet-time’ views.  Its more than just cool, the technology can allow a better view into a play in football:  the refs can now see every angle.

NBC will start using this technology right away: A Cowboys / Giants game on Sept 8th will debut the cameras.

Currently, AT&T stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, is the only stadium equipped with the proper 12-camer rig at both ends of the building.  Expect every stadium to have the rigs by years end.
