The Australian 10 network broadcast last Sunday Night's Super Bowl (which was 10AM Monday morning here) in full HD, and the pictures were very impressive.

They also replayed it at 8:30 PM in our evening and I couldn't see any sign of image deterioraton, so I presume what was re-broadcast is an exact digital replica of what they received over the satellite link.

If somebody is going to tell me that's not really 1920 x 1080. it'll do until the real thing comes along!

It looks like they used an awful lot of cameras.

Does anybody know what they actually did use, or direct me to a website with this information?

For broadcast, I'm not sure, but I can tell you it's also all recorded on film thanks to NFL films out in NJ-- super 16mm believe it or not.
