MotoGP goes HD for 2010!!

OK...who else is excited to hear the newS? its about freakin' time! Is it april 9th yet!?

http://www.motogp(dot)com/en/news/20...oGP+in+HD+2010

"MotoGP fans around the world will be able to view their favourite sport in the most incredible clarity in 2010, as the world's premier motorcycle championship will broadcast in full HD for the first time. Whilst much of the track action over the last year has already been filmed by High Definition cameras, this is the first time that viewers at home will be able to experience the crisp quality of HD when watching the MotoGP race action.

HD has become a standard now for top level sports, and MotoGP is no exception. However, covering up to six kilometres of track, seventeen race bikes, the pit garages and helicopter shots with HD cameras has required years of planning and preparation from series organiser Dorna Sports. The biggest challenge has been the on board cameras, and Dorna together with Gigawave are working to develop these extremely sophisticated cameras.

In 2010, RTL Club (Belgium), Eurosport (France), Sport TV (Portugal), Digisport (Hungary) and Viasat (Scandinavia) will all broadcast the MotoGP season in HD within Europe. The worldwide reach of MotoGP in HD will stretch as far as Speed TV (US), ESPN (Latin America), Globosat (Brazil), One HD (Australia), StarHub (Singapore), Sky (New Zealand), Al Jazeera (Middle East), ESPN Star Sports (Asia) and Supersport (Africa), with further HD broadcasters expected to come on board during the season.

"Working alongside the most recognised sports broadcasters worldwide and being one of the leading motorsports championships, we have a duty to stay abreast of all the emerging technologies which help us to capture the speed and adrenaline of MotoGP" said Manel Arroyo, Managing Director of Dorna.

3D

In an exciting development, the evolution of the delivery of MotoGP in even more lifelike quality may not stop at HD. With 3D cinematography already being successfully pioneered in the world of cinema, the same technology is now poised to revolutionise sports broadcasting. Last year at the Red Bull US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca and in conjunction with the 3D and digital systems specialists Vince Pace, Dorna Sports carried out a successful trial of the latest HD 3D Fusion camera systems.

For 2010 the Pace team, led by John Bruno who was part of the Visual Effects team involved in the Academy Award winning Avatar film, plans to produce a documentary. This will feature images captured during the MotoGP season, and channels broadcasting in 3D such as ESPN and Sky have already shown interest in delivering such coverage of the sport."

I watched it one SPEED - the video wasn't HD, but the graphics (lap times, etc.) were certainly HD. So I suspect the feed itself was HD, however the cameras at the track weren't.

it was broadcasted in 1080i on my cable box. so it was crystal clear for me, compared to the SD 480i feed they were broadcasting over the years.
i was so used to watching it in SD, that today was like watching it with a set of new eyes and perfect vision!

theres no specific channel. youre gonna have to view the channel listing from your cable provider.
they should have given you a paper listing to help you get acquainted with your new cable channel lineup.

Hmm... weird. It wasn't distorted or cut off being displayed in 4:3, but it was definately HD.
