    NFL goes to all digital at 2015

    And Ken goes to no more NFL films at 2015...

    "They are the proof that something was there and no longer is. Like a stain. And the stillness of them is boggling. You can turn away but when you come back they’ll still be there looking at you."

    — Diane Arbus, March 15, 1971, in response to a request for a brief statement about photographs

    I would be really surprised if Kodak didn't know of this development way before that article. Kind of coincides rather well with the article on saving Kodak motion picture film.

    And to be honest, who is surprised by this turn? ARRI Amira brings the needed higher framerates and is much more in pace with the type of business NFL Films is in.

    Reading this I was surprised to know they still used any film. What part of the game(s) is it used for??
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    How do they do all the instant replays?

    By the gist of the text, "NFL Films" is not what gets broadcast direct to TV, that would have been videotape since at least the 80s.
    These "films" must be something that's shown in a "cinema" (remember them? I haven't been to one in years) and not live on TV. (edit: or maybe flown to TV stations for the nightly highlights, but still not live)

    ps, of course they kept the name "NFL Films", because "NFL Pixels" doesn't have the same ring to it (and Pixar might sue them for it).
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    Most modern film cameras have a digital output in the shutter for showing the director/DP/Producer what is being filmed, it's not high resolution but for a TV screen it's just fine and crisp.

    Also what you see on TV is mostly from the respective broadcaster channel, but when they show "back in the day" clips of football games and such and sell those Taped / DVD / BlueRay's of the championship game, it's the recorded game on film. (To my understanding).
