Submission + - Sports Illustrated at the Final Four

greenfield writes: "Mike Tedesco from Microsoft's Pro Photo group has posted the first part of a writeup of the technology used by Sports Illustrated at the Final Four. It's pretty cool technology. Over 30 laptops are hardwired using almost a mile of Ethernet cable. A single photographer is able to trigger multiple cameras at once and have the images transmitted to a server within seconds. It's also worth rereading the Rob Galbraith article of a few years ago (previously linked by Slashdot). Disclaimer: I wrote several pieces of software used by SI at the Final Four."
