Instant Replay

Instant replay is the replaying of video footage of an event or incident very soon (or even immediately) after it has occurred. In television broadcasting of sports events, instant replay is often used during live broadcast, to show a passage of play which was important or remarkable, or which was unclear on first sight.

Some sports organizations allow referees or other officials to consult replay footage before making or revising a decision about an unclear or dubious play. This is variously called video referee, video umpire, instant replay official, television match official or third umpire. Other associations allow video evidence only after the end of the contest, for example to penalize a player for misconduct not noticed by the officials during play.

Famous quotes containing the words replay and/or instant:

    Everything our children hear, see, and feel is recorded onto a cassette. Guess who is the big star in their movie? You are. What you say and, more important, what you do, is recorded there for them to replay over and over again. We all have videocassettes. Adults just have larger libraries of tapes available.
    Stephanie Martson (20th century)

    Let’s take the instant by the forward top;
    For we are old, and on our quick’st decrees
    Th’ inaudible and noiseless foot of time
    Steals ere we can effect them.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
