Anyone compare the simultaneous true-HD (non-SD-camera) shots from NBC's San Francisco amateur match coverage? Seemed the CBS images were noticeably better, overall, than the best shots from NBC. If so, maybe there are too many variables to pin down the reason.
Here, the CBS feed was from just north of NYC to WCBS-DT, with no subchannels, then to NYC's TWC via fiber, versus the cross-country NBC feed. NBC does multicast here, reducing the max bit rate for true 1080i. But since I don't encounter, via cable, the MPEG breakups with motion local OTA viewers complain of, I've speculated TWC might be getting a full-bit-rate feed from NBC (before multicast encoding). Maybe not. -- John
