    ABC Sports will field test the Sony advanced prototype HD super slo-mo camera system, according to Robert Willox, director of marketing for content creation at Sony Electronics. He said the world's first 3x super slo-mo camera captures video at 180 fps in multiple HD formats, from 720p to 1080i, "so the camera will be useful for NBC or CBS the next time they air the Super Bowl." Several engineers from the Sony design center in Atsugi, Japan, will baby-sit the prototype during game, according to Willox. Sony also is providing its Cinealta HDW-F900 camera, which will shoot HD 1080p at 24 fps for archive material to be created by NFL Films.

    Wouldn't it be cool if it could actually be broadcast at that rate, so people could do their own slow-mo replays?

    I would settle for a TRUE 60fps progressive signal!

    It will be interesting to see if bandwidth will once again be the limiting issue for HD broadcasting into our homes.
