On Thursday I had the opportunity to work with the NFL NETWORK shooting still photos for their TNF broadcast. The NFL Network is using fiber optic technology to deliver still images to the TV viewer almost instantly. I was tethered between my Canon MarkIII camera and the TV Truck outside of Qualcomm Stadium in the TV compound via fiber optic cable. As soon as I shot the photo it would show up on the computers in the TV Truck where editors would make selects and deliver them to the TV broadcast. The entire process happens in a matter of seconds. It took me awhile to get used to being tethered. You can not just take off and change your position on the field when you have 500ft of cable hanging behind you. Its like shooting a game on a leash. It was a great experience and it was cool to finally see how the system works after hearing about it for a few years now. You can see more photos on NFL.com as well as on my website.
