Geez, a $300 consumer camcorder can shoot 1080p at 50fps or 60fps now. Then they would be able to downscale to 720p or 1080i. If they in fact shoot in 1080i then they have to convert to 720p and probably to filter out some detail to ensure that interline twitter does not trickle into progressive TV feed.

The 50Hz/60Hz is still dependent on the mains frequency of the host country, otherwise there would be flicker from lighting and signs. Japan, Brazil, Canada, Korea (did I miss any?) are 60Hz, everything else is 50.

In the past the FOM feed was i50 even for races from the 60 Hz countries, maybe now they can send a i60 feed over the Americas MPEG-4 feed.

One of those logos that looks great in the truck but degrades badly at lower-bitrate compression.

Someone else did it, I just found the file and the sample online.

In my opinion not all on track cameras provide HD quality particullary the ones from pitlane seems to be SD.

Upgrading to HD is expensive. I don't think they can afford to upgrade all the cameras at once.

I haven't heard yet whether the shuttle impersonation broke the steering column or it broke prior....
Would like to know.

Bernie could upgrade to HD in a heartbeat if he opened up his wallet for more than a second.

I almost believed you were serious.
I remember Panasonic commercial from few years ago where family was watching formula1 on their home cinema with surround- we have HD since 2011 and here in Poland we have only stereo with poor commentary - where is that Panasonic vision??

Does anyone know if F1 is available online (in HD or otherwise)? If so, where? I know MotoGP.com offers a season pass that allows you to watch every race online in HD for 100 Euros. That's pretty cool. I wish F1 would offer the same thing. I don't have cable and I refuse to pay ~$100 per month so that I can watch one channel.

If you're not looking at a live feed, Usenet has a binaries.f1 group...

Hey Tim, can't you think of at least ONE other channel you would watch if you had cable? The Monaco Grand Prix is this Sunday!

I'm approaching the point where I may end up dumping pay TV as well. I have DirecTV and it's just getting too expensive.

Watched Monaco Practice today on Speed HD.
It looked terrific, maybe the finest video of F1 so far....
post #45 of 789
For those looking forward to Sunday's Monaco race, I recommend grabbing the new Grand Prix BD.

It is quite fascinating to compare the Monaco of 45 years ago with today's Monaco.
There is also some Special Features on the disk that deal specifically with the differences/similarities.

A MUST HAVE for any real F1 fan IMO.

I had completely forgotten that the Grand Prix of Monaco was this weekend until posts to this thread reminded me to set it up to record on my DVR. Thanks guys!

The Grand Prix BD is near the top of my BB queue. Unfortunately, though, BB still shows it as "On Order." I hope BB gets it sometime soon but have no idea whether they will.

Le Grand Prix du Canada looked pretty fantastic on FOX yesterday, despite the rain.
post #48 of 789
So, they said they are also broadcasting the next race on Fox? nice...
post #49 of 789
I don't understand how they can absorb a 2hr rain delay, but then have to cut to speed for the last 10min of podium and interview? Just so they can cut into some programming 10min earlier that no one is watching.
post #50 of 789
Once upon a time not so long ago as they started building all these new tracks that were to increase passing, it was said that the old courses were boring.

Magney cours, A1 ring, San Marino, and one specifically I can remember Canada grand prix.

Yesterday besides looking fantastic on Fox(hey speed get on the ball) Canada was a freakin awesome race. I cant help hating these new tracks they are boring with so many turns you cant fall in love with the tracks at all. They are to complex a layout.

Canada if nothing else yesterday proves that we need to get rid of these new complex layouts and get back to old style tracks. Preferrably the old tracks themselves.

Agreed. FOX has done this before. Thank goodness i came home between errands - i happened to check the race as it was recording and saw it was well into the lengthy rain delay so i was able to extend my recording in progress by another three hours so i caught the whole thing.

In case you aren't aware of it, Speed Channel is re-broadcasting the race on Tuesday 6/14 at 9:00am Pacific Time, and on these Speed re-broadcasts they usually include the post-race interview that FOX often fails to show. My Tivo is already set!

Thanks for the heads up. I was out of town over the weekend, so I overlooked setting up the race to record live. Thanks to your post, though, my TiVo is now set to record the rerun of the race on Speed.

Thank god.

My DVR recording ended right before the race suspension was lifted.
Not a happy camper here...

I was watching the FOX feed from my DVR recording and it ended. :\\

I happened to catch the rerun of it on Speed, glad they cut out the 2hr. red flag part.

Anyway, Holy @#$%ing Christ... wow. lol

The Speed Channel re-broadcast from this morning did include the podium celebration and the post-race interview

FOX never does the podium and interview, IIRC.

If you can obtain the HD version of the BBC feed I highly recommend it. Picture quality is execllent. There are no commerical breaks, so you don't miss any of the action. And there is much better commentary - both pre, during and post-race.

During the rain delayed Canadian Grand Prix, the F1 feed showed people watching the rain delayed coverage on large TVs in their HQs. And you could hear that they were listening to the BBC commentary. (Presumably sourced on-site)

In spite of the delay, this was one wild and wooly race!
The drama and action was simply terrific.
Who can believe Button would win this race?!?
Simply amazing.

Vettel's dominance not withstanding, this year has been the best F1 I have ever seen.
