I shared my thoughts on how technology and sports are converging on TV at a recent conference. It was hosted by NASCAR and Comcast for businesses involved in the sport and hit a range of interesting topics.
Video highlights (6 min):
My talk focused on the four main vectors that I believe bringing sports fans closer to the action while at home:
- Video: Quality overall thru things like 4K HDR and changing the viewing angle of the event (as done by NBC Sports in Olympics)
- Stats: Visualizing stats better to give you more context around the action
- Personal: Follow your favorite teams/athletes and never miss a moment thru targeted notifications
- Social: How social players are connecting fans to the action on their platforms (e.g. Facebook Stadium, Twitter Moments)
