The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I was just watching ball golf and they have that magnificant slo-mo on replays. Does anyone know what type of equipment they use for that? It would be great for annalizing form for disc golf right?

I don't think folks are ignoring your question - I suspect that no one has a good answer.
probably just a technician to analyze the video with a program and loop it to the broadcast in slo-mo that the commentators have control of with another program.. blah blah that kind of stuff
Probably Sony....Sony is without a doubt the leader in professional filming equipment...at least when it comes to the camera....HD...digital processing...the highest resolution available...latest editing software.

Big Bucks!!!
oh yeah right, right
They film it faster and play back at normal speed. For example, if they are shooting at (and I am just making up these numbers) 100 frames per second normally, they play it back at 100 fps. Conversely, they can film something at 200 fps and show it back at 100 fps. It is clear as a bell and appears slower than normal. In the old days, they kept filming at the same speed and just showed it back to us slower than normal. This led to jumpy pictures with gaps in between (picture watching a play in baseball in the 70s and not seeing the tag because it was "between" frames). Now, they film it fast and replay normal to give us the slo-mo effect. It really is not too complicated, but it took us a long time to figure out how to do it!
1000 frames per second normal filming rate. normally at 120 per second. It would be huge for technique and playback. Any world on this years worlds coverage as far as a polished product?
just a high speed camera and film. i believe that a normal speed camera shoots at 24 frames per second. a high speed camera films at 100 or 120 frames per second and when played at the normal play back speed of 24 frames per second it becomes slow motion.
