“Instant” Replay

first_imgIf you read a recent Sports Illustrated, you might have come across a story about Fred Glass and Mark Cuban meeting in Dallas.  Fred is the IU athletic director, and Mark Cuban is a billionaire and IU grad.  Fred and Mark were at IU at the same time.Fred went there to present an idea to Cuban in hopes of attaining funding.  Before Glass was halfway through his presentation, Mark said “you have 5 million”.  This project is going to try to really develop instant replay–not instant delay.  There were 28 holes drilled in Assembly Hall at IU, and there will be 30 of these holes in the football complex.  The cameras placed in these openings will record the entire game in 5K resolution–5x’s what we have now.The image you see will be 3D, and the replays can be pulled up instantly.  The replay will be no longer than what a normal call takes now.  In other words, it will truly be instant for the officials.  I don’t know how long before this becomes reality in all sports, but it definitely is beyond the drawing board.last_img read more
