Charity Shield: A new Wembley and they couldn’t afford a roof?

The ITV coverage of The Charity shield was spoilt for me by the contrasting brightness of sections of the pitch.
The TV software was able to change the brightness, in respect of whether the ball was in the sunlit, or shaded sections.

Unfortunately, when it was in the shaded section, it caused a whiteout in the sunlit section.

Half the field became so bright as to make it difficult to see what was happening in the brightened dark area.
It should be possible, in the absence of suitable roofing, to pick points on the pitch  to match to and control the brightness of each portion of it, so they all appeared equally bright.

There’d still be some visual distortion but you’d be able to visualise all area’s of the play and follow the action properly
