Anyone else watching the Super Bowl notice the quality shift right after one of those fancy NBC transitions?
And it confused me more than it bugged me. Why, after a nicely rendered transition, would the system play what appeared to be poorly compressed SD footage for a second before jumping back up to high quality video? Was it a bandwidth problem? A system limitation? Graphic RAM? Bit rate? ...anyone have any ideas or know what was up with that?
Or was I the only one who noticed?
I mean, I'm okay with being the only one more interested in the technical side of things instead of the game.
And I just stumbled across an explanation of how they draw the first down line, something I've been wondering about for a while now.
Football is fascinating.
No, not the game--though the defense man who ran a 100 yard touchdown was super impressive--the technology behind the video coverage we see of the game. That's fascinating.
