Cameras are mainly used in Sports for replays and concluding a doubtful decision made by the umpire or refree......... Let us discuss about the use of cameras in sports...... 1) CRICKET: Replay cameras were first used in Test Cricket in November 1992..... The test match was played between South Africa and India.......... The third Umpire Karl Liebenberg claimed a memorable first scalp...... He went into the history by giving Sachin Tendulkar run-out when he was on eleven........ 2) FOOTBALL: International soccer has refused to embrace replay on some issues, with FIFA and UEFA voting in March to stop all the experiments with the technology that could determine whether the balls cross goal-lines clearly or not..... 3) TENNIS: Replays began at Grand Slams with the 2006 US Open...... Hawk-eye system is used to decide close line-calls....... 4) BASEBALL: Replays came into existence from 28th August, 2008..... It applies mostly to home-run calls..... Decision whether to use replay is made by umpire crew chief........ 5) NBA: The replay was in use since the 2002-2003 season to decide whether the players got off-shots before the time expired or not...... Since 2007-2008 season, it has also aided the decisions on altercations and fouls...... 6) NFL: The debut of replay was in 1986 and the use was restricted from 1992 to 1998...... Now, replays rule on almost everything........ 7) NHL: Video reviews has been in place since the 1991-1992 season to check whether the puck crossed the goal-line completely or not, went in before the time expired or not; or the net was dislodged or not, and was not kicked or battled in intentionally
