Oh how technology and digital media have advanced. Below is a video demonstration:
- capturing an HD broadcast of a live Red Sox game (streamed from MLB.tv, through my computer, and onto the television)
- the video was shot on the iPhone 3GS’s new video capture
- and uploaded to Youtube wirelessly via the iPhone… in less than 30 seconds
On the iPhone and the computer, the video quality is far better than what is displayed on Youtube… but it is still far from HD and, despite TechCrunch’s argument otherwise, products like the Flip Mino HD still have a role within the market (for now).
Also worth noting, the iPhone 3GS’s camera is markedly better than the previous model’s – both in focus, function and output. This photo also does a better job conveying the quality of MLB.tv’s broadcast… a product I am so thoroughly impressed with that I chose to cancel my Comcast MLB Package subscription after five years:
