Earlier this year, the SEC announced that, along with running water and electricity, they would be implementing high-definition television monitors in their replay booths, and they would be installed in time for the 2010 regular season.
Now comes word that the ACC is following their league brethren in their pursuit of technology that’s been available since before the turn of the century.
In an announcement made on his conference’s official website, commissioner John Swofford revealed that his league had made the decision to have DVSport, Inc., to help integrate the change from standard to high definition in ACC replay booths in time for the 2010 regular season.
“Over the past five seasons, DVSport has provided the ACC with excellent service as our instant replay provider,” Swofford said in a statement. “During the last two ACC championship games, we utilized HD Instant Replay and feel that by integrating it into the regular season we are providing our officials with the best technology available, which insures the integrity of the game and is in the best interest of the coaches, players, officials and fans.”
