You may have seen Swanni’s merciless roasting of TV and movie personalities who do not fare well under the high resolution HD cameras. It’s not just actors and actresses that have a problem with the new reality of HD programming however. It turns out that professional sports uniforms are not immune to the unintended effects of high res.
The Dallas Observer ran a story about the fact that the famed Dallas Cowboys are thinking about making a change to their home uniform. Why? It turns out that those sparkling silver pants that we’ve been watching on our little screens for years actually are a shade of light green. The shade was chosen because it resulted in a great silver for standard definition screens. But on HDTVs, the true hue comes through. So it’s back to the drawing board for the Cowboys to find a shade that will look silver both on the field and in your living room.
