More than 20 teams in the NFL are using a unique form of virtual reality, known as “cbssportsnetwork”, to broadcast the games that matter most.
The NFL is looking for a VR-enabled technology company to help it launch a new platform for fans to watch games, but the team isn’t the only one interested.
The New York Giants have been testing their new “NFL VR-P” since February, and it’s been one of the biggest success stories of the season so far.
The VR-equipped team uses the headset to capture game footage, and then uses a smart phone app to stream the content to a TV, laptop or phone.
“We’re not trying to make a $9 million, $10 million device, we’re trying to do it on a low cost and make it easy for fans who don’t have a VR device,” said Josh Gaffney, a former NFL player who now runs his own company called NFL VR, or NFLVR.
The team is testing a virtual reality headset with an NFC chip, and they’re currently using it to broadcast their games.
Gaffney said the technology was designed to allow viewers to experience the game through a smartphone, laptop, or phone without a screen or a TV.
The headset also allows for fans in other locations to get a better look at the action on their screens.
The Giants also use the technology to stream their games, which are being streamed to other NFL stadiums, including at least one stadium in Los Angeles.
“It’s going to make it easier for fans, it’s going for the fans of other teams,” Gaffey said.
“So I think it’s an interesting opportunity for us to help support the NFL and the game, and I think that’s really important.”
The NFL and VR have been a big part of the NFL since the start of the 2018 season.
The NFL partnered with a startup called NFLVegas in 2016 to launch a VR experience for fans at the game.
The headset was the first to allow players to look around while the game was being played, and later, players were able to see the field and the stadium in 360-degree.
The VR technology has been tested at other professional sports games, including the NFL’s NFL Fantasy Football game.
It has been used to stream many other live events as well.
“The goal of the VR-related technology is to help players, fans, the media and everyone else in the sports world understand what’s happening on the field of play,” Giffney said.
The technology could have a huge impact on the NFL, and the league could be looking at more opportunities to monetise it.
“I think there’s a lot of excitement around the potential of VR,” Gafey said, adding that he expects the company to have more to say about its future plans after the NFL VR-powered technology launches.
The new technology is not the first time VR has been part of a sports event.
Earlier this year, the AFL announced it had been working with the NHL to bring a VR headset to the league.
The league was also looking at bringing its own VR-based experience to other events.
