All of this from Jim Wyatt earlier today:
“We are excited to present a game with the majority of live-action coverage coming from SkyCam,” said Fred Gaudelli, Executive Producer of NBC Sunday Night Football and Thursday Night Football. @Titans @Steelers— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) November 9, 2017
More from NBC: “After pivoting out of necessity to SkyCam in the New England fog, we’ve been aggressively planning and testing with the intent of utilizing the system for a full game."@Titans @Steelers— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) November 9, 2017
One more from NBC on @Titans vs @Steelers next Thursday: "We’ll still have our full complement of cameras and will revert to traditional coverage when situations dictate, but the primary viewing experience of the game will come from the SkyCam angle."@SNFonNBC— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) November 9, 2017
OK, one more from NBC on @Titans vs @Steelers and SkyCam plan: "Younger generations of NFL fans have grown accustomed to watching football from this angle through their love of video games. This telecast will have a look and feel akin to that experience."— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) November 9, 2017
I love this. A couple of weeks back NBC had to go to the SkyCam for the Falcons and Patriots game because a heavy fog rolled into New England. You couldn’t really see the game from the cameras that weren’t down on the field.
It is interesting that one of the reasons NBC decided to do this is because it is the camera angle people see when using Madden. That’s actually a really smart move on their part.
