Default Send message to ABC (INDY 500 non HD)

[B]ABC missed a wonderful opportunity to be the first and only network to broadcast the INDY 500 in HD. Use the link below to let ABC know our dissappointment. GO Danica Patrick. Congrats to Dan Wheldon and owner Michael Andretti.

I just sent a letter, letting them know about my negative feelings. We'll see if somebody answers.

Default ABC Blew It!

Thanks for the link. I sent them an email on their poor decision not to show the Indy race in HD!

Default Indy in HD next Year?

Thanks for the site. Congratulated them on their new shows, Desp. Housewives, Boston Legal, Grey's Anatomy, all in HD.

Suggested Indy in HD next year.

There is something about a good looking woman who can drive anything 225+ mph that I find provocative!!

Like many sporting events of international interest, ABC's broadcast of the Indy 500 begins with a company that provides "pool" coverage for any broadcaster that buys the rights to the event. At the Indy 500, this host broadcaster is IMS Productions, which is the production arm of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

"We originate the world feed," said Dave Gass, director of field operations and engineering for IMS Productions. "We put the facility together, we crew it and we give [ABC] the world feed. They add to it and that's what's broadcast."

To capture the event, the host broadcaster has more than 40 cameras around the racetrack, some of which are mobile RF units. This year's broadcast will be in standard definition, although Gass is considering the changes necessary for HD production.
