View Full Version : The 'Hawk Eye' bowling analysis tool

April 11, 2006, 11:43 AM
In some of the matches played in WI or England... I have seen the 'Hawk-eye' tool being used by TV broadcasters (probably ESPN) which looks to be a superb tool for analysing bowling lines/LBW calls/bowling consistencies.. etc. But in Asian matches... I never saw it. Is this tool/software completely patent to any of the TV broadcasters?

It gives great analysis of the bowling and it probably should be adopted by all TV broadcasters. Anyone knows details of this issue? Just curious.

This article (http://www.sportandtechnology.com/features/0077.html) talks about the evolution of Hawk Eye.

Seems like it was created by this Englishman and the British broadcasters grabbed it. So there may be a case of who pays to show the Hawk Eye replays. The games in England r covered by the tele-network who introduced Hawk Eye in the first place, so when ESPN shows those games, they can use it.
