Why are the colors of the balls on Accustat video all but indistinguishable?

It detracts greatly from watching when one can't tell a two from a four from a six from a seven and eight.

Not only is the color rendition terrible, the resolution is so bad. It's hard to tell the one from the nine.

What do you expect? VHS came out in the 70's. Sony bought the rights to VHS and Beta. Sony decided to sell it to Panasonic and kept the much better format Beta. Sony then lost that war because they charged too much for beta royalty. The inferior vhs format survived. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I'm watching a video Dominguez and Rempe right now. It's terrible.

they claim that the camera can distinguish between the balls better that is why they changed the colors for the cameras. at least that is what they claim. personally i think they are nuts......mike
