We Like It: 2014 Winter Olympics to be in Full HD

May 5, 2009 by  

logo2_sochiToday it was announced that Russia’s first Winter Games in 2014 will be in Full HD, no widescreen SD or any shortcuts like in the the 2006 Torino Games.

It’s nice to hear that technology will be in place by then to do so. Rumors are also that it will ONLY be in HD, so those without HD access can’t watch it. It will truly be a turning point for the medium, we think, as this event attracts tens of millions of viewers to watch skilled ski folks churn down the slopes.

We believe in the next year or two there will be a number of HD Only type big events like this: boxing matches, big baseball games and national scale events like this one. Then eyes will all turn towards what will undeniably be the future of television.
