NHK Brings the Matrix into Sports Shooting

The movie The Matrix was the first wide spread introduction of the bullet time technology in the cinematic world. More than a decade later Japan’s national public broadcasting organization (NHK) showcased a working prototype system which includes 8 cameras and can record live video from all of them at once and create an almost real time bullet time (1 min delay) during sports events such as basketball or gymnastics.

Another advantage of the technology – which is controlled by a single cameraman – is its ability to record bullet-time effect video in 3D which can increase the effect even further.
