Why do we think we can do this?
There currently exists a window of opportunity that will support the development of a VVR system. Key factors include:
- most stadiums already have large numbers of cameras, and soon will have many more
- US HDTV is digital, and thus will support flexible, high bandwidth digital transmissions
- the next generation (or possibly even this generation) of televisions will be computers -- and thus will have graphics capabilities and lots of computational power available to support the processing we need
- the funding opportunities in sporting events is huge
- and it is getting cheaper and cheaper to do the kinds of computations we need
