Usopen finally gets rid of that awful coloured surface!!

Nice new colour

The old colour was pathetic, really ugly and useless for tv coverage! These blue/green courts are alot nicer for tv viewing

Re: Usopen finally gets rid of that awful coloured surface!!

Lets hope the tv companies get their ass into gear as well, the past few years has been awful picture quality! It was disgusting last year. Probably the worst picture broadcast quality of all atp/wta events ive ever seen! and its meant to be usa (the country of technology !! ).

Eurosports coverage will be crap though, you can only watch one court (no doubt pathetic choices as usual!) Sky sports service for the usopen will be great, 5 courts (but you cant blame sky for the quality of the feed). Its the useless american host broadcast channel which sucks ass.

Yes but what i mean is, you will be stuck with euros choice (which usually isnt the greatest). Sky sports service allows you to choose 1/5 at all times, interactive service they call it.

Re: Usopen finally gets rid of that awful coloured surface!!

I have a hunch this disgusting suck ass crap picture quality is nothing to do with technical problems and everything to do with the NTSC video signal used in the U.S. - it's different from the PAL system used in Europe and obviously the resolution is different too. It does look worse to me than the videotape we have here, everything's slightly blurry and less distinct at the edges, but I doubt there's anything either broadcaster can do unless the pictures go through a conversion process that'll take considerably longer than ten seconds (or whatever the time delay is between here and New York) to achieve.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Sjengster is right. Transatlantic live broadcast always has quality restrcitions due to those different TV technologies.

The thing is all these other us events have "decent" picture quality eg, cinci, the wta events broadcast on euro (and montreal/toronto which are canada). It just seems to be the us open for some reason (which isnt on, a grand slam shouldnt broadcast such poor quality feeds!). I have spoke to many people in europe (from different countries) and they have agreed, the quality was terrible. It amazed me to hear people on here last year say there was nothing wrong with the picture quality :retard:

I haven't noticed any problems with the picture

I often think there's something wrong with the sound when Threlfall is commentating though

Re: Usopen finally gets rid of that awful coloured surface!!

Maybe the TMS events are actually covered by Sky cameras, using PAL signals, as well as the home broadcaster whereas the US Open only gets pictures from domestic TV? I'm really not an expert on this, despite my spiel about videotape formats above.
