It was an embarrassment for the umpire when he over-ruled a correct call
At the 2012 Thomas Cup & Uber Cup, I was seeing more reviews on the BIG screen; the playback of many shots (in or out).
At the MD1 of the Thomas Cup final match (CHN-vs-KOR), it was a BIG embarrassment for the experienced umpire when he over-ruled a correct call by the line-judge (when the KOR pair won a point from a smash). And it was at a crucial moment of the match too.
Perhaps BCers who are good at copying video shots can post it here (to show what I am talking about).

About time. Stop players cheating and trying to influence the line judges.

LYD's smash was just inside the baseline and was called correctly by the linesman, but at Cai and Fu's protest, the umpire over-ruled it and gave the point to the Chinese. Now this replay can be seen in the 2 giant screens in the venue by everyone and it was obvious to everyone that it was in. The umpire had no clear sight of the baseline furthest away from him and should not have even entertained an overrule. And of course, Cai and Fu should not have gotten away with the influence on the umpire himself, much less the line judge!

it was rare to see an incorrect overrule.

chris was referring to at 18-15 in game 1 of the md1 final

Personally I feel that a simple tv replay system is more than enough. No need for hawkeye or anything like that...

If it was a shot on the far side, then the umpire made an error by even considering an overrule.

That was a costly point to lose for the KOR pair

FIFA will introduce goal-line technology
On Thursday, 05-July-2012, FIFA says it will introduce goal-line technology at the Club World Cup in Japan in December 2012, and plans to use it at the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup.
I wonder when BWF will follow with similar court-line technology?
FIFA will introduce goal-line technology at the Club World Cup in Japan in December, and plans to use it at the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup.
Football finally embraced goal-line technology as FIFA's lawmaking panel approved two systems for use in matches on Thursday.
FIFA will introduce goal-line technology at the seven-team Club World Cup in Japan in December, and plans to use it in Brazil at the 2013 Confederations Cup and 2014 World Cup.
FIFA President Sepp Blatter said the approved Hawk-Eye and GoalRef systems would provide "99 percent security" that a notorious refereeing error which helped eliminate England at the last World Cup would not be repeated.
"There is no 100 percent guarantee in life. In the past we didn't have accurate systems, but I have to say, 'Thank you, Lampard,'" Blatter said, referring to England midfielder Frank Lampard, whose clear goal against Germany did not count in South Africa two years ago.
FIFA will use both goal-line systems in Japan, after they won unanimous support from the International Football Association Board (IFAB) panel, chaired by Blatter.
The English Premier League is expected to adopt one of the systems - which are expected to cost up to $US250,000 per stadium to install - during next season.
Major League Soccer in the United States has also expressed interest.
The IFAB panel, comprising officials from FIFA and the four British football associations, also approved a five-officials system of refereeing which UEFA President Michel Platini promoted as an alternative to technology.
In a third historic ruling, the panel reversed a ban on women players, notably in the Middle East, wearing headscarves in FIFA competitions which had been enforced for safety reasons in 2007.
The three decisions "will be long lasting and resonate throughout the world," said Patrick Nelson, chief executive of the Northern Ireland association.
Thursday's decision was expected and completed Blatter's U-turn, after FIFA had previously blocked using technology to help referees make decisions.
It followed two weeks after another major tournament was blighted by a goal-line error, as European Championship co-host Ukraine was denied a goal against England in a decisive group match.
"It became evident the moment what happened in South Africa in 2010, that this cannot be repeated, and it happened again in the Ukraine. Ukraine can still not believe it," Blatter said.
The IFAB panel accepted test results conducted by a Zurich-based technology institute that proved Hawk-Eye and GoalRef could accurately judge when balls crossed the goal line, and send an immediate signal to the match referee.
Hawk-Eye is a British camera-based system already used in tennis and cricket.
GoalRef is a Danish-German project using magnetic sensors in the goalposts to track a special ball.

US$250,000 to install per stadium?! That'd be more than the total prize money in a typical Super Series or Premier badminton tournament!

Football governing body (IFAB) has finally bowed to the demands for GOAL-line technology ie Hawk-Eye and the GoalRef systems in the sport.
Fifa's president Sepp Blatter changed his mind on the goal-line technology after Frank Lampard's disallowed goal for England against Germany in the 2010 World Cup.
The nod will give the green light to the Premier League and Football Association introducing the technology into their competitions most probably this year and definitely next.
The IFAB, has insisted that the technology is to be used only as an aid to referees to make a decision, rather than being the deciding factor in whether the ball has crossed the line.
The Hawk-Eye system – developed by a British company now owned by Sony – is based on cameras and GoalRef, a Danish-German development, uses magnetic fields.
Will the BWF also follow the trend and implement the Hawk-Eye system so as to avoid disputed line calls?

Frame by frame would be ok in badminton as like tennis there is time between points, the reason the football system cost 250,000 is that is a real time monitoring system so when the ball crosses the line the referee instantly knows through an ear piece. Using a frame by frame TV camera was rejected by FIFA as it would interrupt the flow of the game.
In badminton like tennis a limit on any challenges would have to be introduced though otherwise any close calls would always be challenged by someone. Luckily unlike tennis due to the shuttlecock normally the cork does land first so a TV camera with a high frame rate would probably be sufficient in 99% of cases (so no need for hawk eye as in tennis where the margins are more often blurred on serves) if there's still no idea after looking at the camera image say with the on court call.

the prize money for UEFA Euro 2012 is 196 million euro.
US$250,000 is peanuts.
