F1 being filmed in HD this year

The BBC has confirmed F1 is being filmed in HD this year.

But Formula One Management is not making the high definition feed available to broadcasters.

Danielle Nagler, the BBC’s head of HD, wrote on her blog today:

The events are being filmed in HD (as far as we know) but they are not made available by F1 to broadcasters in HD.

Earlier this year Lee McKenzie from BBC’s F1 team said HD would be offered to F1 broadcasters in 2011. It may be that FOM wishes to get a year’s experience of filming in HD under its belt before committing to a live feed in high definition.

Hopefully they will release the HD footage shot this year in some form, either via their website or perhaps the end-of-season video review.

Meanwhile, NASCAR is being broadcast in HD for the sixth year in 2010.

    Looks like Brazil will be on BBC One HD if OneHD meet the rumoured launch date. Will F1 just be upscaled though ? MotoGP is in HD the weekend before on BBCHD – could it signal a sea change ?

  3. Maybe you could make changes to the blog subject F1 being filmed in HD this year | F1 Fanatic – The Formula 1 Blog to something more better for your subject you create. I loved the the writing still.
