3D Sports Arrives in the NFL – Minus Special TVs and Silly Glasses
Patriots.com reports that
Not everything in sports is rocket science. But what happens when actual rocket scientists set out to improve the way fans watch competitive events from the stands and at home?
The answer is fast mover Replay Technologies, which has built a unique, camera-based system that creates a 3-dimensional viewing experience that doesn’t require special TVs or fans to wear glasses when watching a sporting competition.
If you watched any of The Matrix series of movies, you have an idea of what Replay Technologies has been doing for sports. Even if you have, check out this clip from a Dallas Cowboys game as seeing truly is believing.
Replay received a Sports Emmy last year with the New York Yankees’ YES Network and was nominated again this year, with TNT for its work on the NBA All-Star Game.
This magnetic content, created by the company, is offered up to the team for use on big video boards such as the one at AT&T Stadium, use on end zone big screens, to broadcasters who can include it in their game telecasts and someday over the Internet. The 3D images might also work its way into instant replay.
