La gent de FirstV1sion sembla que no pararà fins a aconseguir-ho. I ho aconseguiran. De moment ja podrem veure les seves samarretes al proper clàssic de la Euroleague. Per desgràcia no seran els jugadors els que les portin, sinò els àrbitres. Buf! Quin luxe. Tinc unes ganes brutals de veure com funciona aquesta tecnologia en directe, mentre veig un partit de veritat.
Us deixo el vídeo que han gravat durant l’entrenament dels jugadors del BarÇa. La pinta és espectacular, de pitet. Segur que encara es pot millorar molt, però oju amb el que estan aconseguint. Cada vegada més de realitat i menys de somni. Endavant!
“I felt pretty good with the camera, no restrictions, feels like you are wearing a regular protection and it feels good,” Barcelona center Maciej Lampe said after testing the camera. “It´s not heavy, it didn´t complicate anything. It´s like wearing a tight undershirt. It will give the fans the chance to watch the fouls and action from a different angle. I have never seen anyone playing with a camera on his chest: it is definitively interesting.”
“It feels good I didn’t have to change anything I do regularly,” Barcelona guard Edwin Jackson added. “I keep playing my game, it is not heavy. It is pretty convenient. It can provide the fans different images and give a closer look at the game for the fans and even for the players.”
Thursday’s historic jersey cam debut continues Euroleague Basketball’s synergistic use of technology to bring Turkish Airlines Euroleague excitement and drama ever closer to the fans. Last season, the Euroleague was one of the first in pro sports to use Google Glasses in a live game. And last month, Euroleague Basketball launched one of the sporting market’s first fully responsive website platforms, offering identical news, video and live scoring on all devices.
“Euroleague Basketball’s continuing objective in embracing avant-garde technology is to give fans every possible means to enjoy our sport,” Jordi Bertomeu, President and CEO of Euroleague Basketball, said. “The debut of the jersey cam this week shows that our clubs, players and partners are equally committed to putting fans first. Everyone who loves basketball is surely as excited as we are to witness this worldwide debut on Thursday that joins this breakthrough innovation with a classic rivalry like that of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.”
“The tests that we have done in collaboration with Turkish Airlines Euroleague and F.C. Barcelona have demonstrated that this innovation is not unreachable and that every day we are closer to making it a reality in professional competition,” Jose A. Ildefonso, First V1sion CEO, said. “Because all fans wants to feel like their idols on the court, First V1ision has a great future ahead.”
Salut i tecnologia!
