    HIGH DEFINITION COMING TO FOX SPORTS IN 2004

    Network Sports Division Chooses 720p Format for

    NFL, NASCAR and MLB Coverage Including World Series,

    Super Bowl XXXIX & Daytona 500


    FOX Sports, an innovative leader in sports broadcasting, began its evolution to the digital age in January 2002 when the network televised Super Bowl XXXVI in enhanced-definition dubbed FOX WIDESCREEN™. Later this year, FOX’ sports division continues it’s on-screen evolution when it surges ahead to full-fledged high-definition.

    Beginning in the third quarter of 2004, FOX Sports will present much of its exclusive live event programming in 720p high-definition, it was announced today by David Hill, Chairman, FOX Sports Television Group. A complete schedule of events which FOX Sports will televise in high definition will be announced shortly once all necessary equipment procurement is finalized.

    “Given the high-profile events that FOX Sports broadcasts later this year and beyond, the timing is perfect for us to begin our transition to the gold standard of high-definition television,” said Hill. “We were very pleased with FOX WIDESCREEN™, but after extensive research and testing, it became clear that we wanted our viewers to have access to the sharpest sports images in the world, and without question, the 720p format produces those images.”

    Between July 2004 and February 2005, FOX Sports televises many of America’s premier sports events, including NASCAR’s Pepsi 400 from Daytona International Speedway, MLB’s 75th Anniversary All-Star Game from Houston, playoffs and World Series; regular- and post-season NFL coverage including Super Bowl XXXIX from Jacksonville, and the Daytona 500.

    The 720p (progressive) format takes 60 razor sharp, complete pictures per-second while 1080i (interlaced) takes 60 half pictures per-second. While 1080i has more lines of resolution when portraying still images, in FOX’ view, 720p provides greater picture quality for sports because it takes more pictures per second, and has more lines of resolution when portraying moving images.

    “The common misperception in our industry is that 1080i is the better high definition system because it provides more lines or resolution,” added Hill. “However, I am truly convinced that 720p is the far superior format and our viewers are going to love all three of our sports and their signature events broadcast in this system.”

    In just ten years of existence, FOX Sports has earned 57 Emmy Awards for excellence in the presentation of the biggest sporting events on television, more than any other network during the same stretch of time. FOX Sports is the exclusive network broadcast rights holder for Major League Baseball, the exclusive network broadcaster of NFC regular-season National Football League games and a rights holder of NASCAR NEXTEL Cup racing. David Hill and Ed Goren are the Executive Producers of FOX Sports.

    Wo gibt's denn noch FoxSports? Auf welchem in Europa empfangbaren Satelliten kann man FS empfangen (FreeTV)? FSME auf 43°W wurde ja schon mit PowerVu "dichtgemacht"...

    Wenn ich deinen Text richtig verstehe, dann müsste es spätestens am 3. Juli 2004 losgehen, denn da findet das Pepsi 400 in Daytona statt. Da es die letzte NASCAR Übertragung für Fox im Jahr 2004 ist, will man es sicher nochmal richtig krachen lassen.
