Virtual 1st enhancing the fan experience

May 10 2019

Tracab’s Virtual 1st is unique as a “Down & Distance” solution for professional and collegiate football. Its uniqueness comes from the fact that — unlike other systems — it does not rely on additional sensors or hardware to be installed on cameras; its simplicity in both deployment and set-up; and in the easiness importing standard graphics files for customized on-field markers.

“This is what fan engagement is all about, delivering the same experience in the stadium that viewers are used to getting at home when watching a game on TV,”

Kyle Campbell, Video Production Manager for the New Orleans Saints

Virtual 1st is a completely optical system providing a virtual line of scrimmage, 1st down markers, red zone highlights and other on-field graphics that are easily customized to match both in-stadium and on-air styles.
