Yesterday Rogers unveiled a new app that will let you see more camera angels than ever before via a new app called GamePlus.
Here’s what it does:
Rogers is offering something viewers have never seen before in a product it’s calling GamePlus.
The feature is an app that offers fans the chance to basically create their own replays or choose from among several angles. The $10 million feature will provide up to eight different replay angles, views from a camera mounted on a referee’s helmet, cameras stationed at the benches and blue line, and on overhead perspective supplied by a mobile Sky Cam that follows the players up and down the ice.
Most of the images on display during a press conference on Monday at the Air Canada Centre were impressive. The Ref Cam was particularly unique, though those expecting to hear conversations between officials and players will be disappointed to find that the only sound they’ll hear is the background noise in the arena.
The sheer scope of the options is certainly impressive.
If a fan wants to watch the entire game from the perspective of the Sky Cam, or from the referee’s point of view, he can do that on his mobile device. If his favourite player is featured on the Star Cam, which will focus on one selected athlete for the entire game, that’s available, too.
“This is a game-changer,” said Pelley. “It puts customers in control and gives them access to angles they’ve never seen before.”
There is a catch to the GamePlus app. Find that out & see a short video or the app in the full article by Chris Zelkovich ==> HERE
