I shot a quick and dirty behind the scenes at the Boston Garden yesterday while we set up for the Bruins game.
I have the privilege of using the $130,000 Sony HDC-3300 HD SuperMo broadcast camera. I find this technology very interesting and I have tried to explain it in layman's terms.
UPDATE: Someone emailed me...I was a little low with the retail price, the camera actually retails for $270,000.00 without the lens. If you do not believe me, look here: news.sel.sony.com/en/press_room /b2b/broadcast_production/release/9092.html ...But maybe you can get it used for $130,000?
This short explains how the camera works, how it is recorded/played back and why it is important to be able to capture fast action sports at 90 frames per second.
Game footage courtesy of New England Sports Network. Sorry it is in standard def and 4:3, I did not have time to get it off the HD melt reel.
