We are big sports fans here at RMA Electronics, so it’s always interesting to see new applications where industrial video and machine vision products are used at professional sporting events and venues (even if we did not sell it). This recent article in the September 2013 issue of Vision Systems Design talks about how industrial area scan cameras and frame grabbers using Camera Link interface are being used to create 3D video – and enhance the overall viewing experience. The camera and frame grabber hardware is being provided by Teledyne DALSA and they have partnered with Replay Technologies to provide this sports video replay system. Here is the link to the article, as well as a video sample from the system in use at AT&T Stadium. Interesting how they decided to use the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders for their sample video instead of footage from an actual NFL game.
