JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Ever attended an NFL game and wished you could see different replays instead of relying on what's shown on the video boards? You can if you're at a Jacksonville Jaguars game at EverBank Field.
The Jaguars announced Tuesday that they have teamed up with a virtual reality company called VOKE to give fans an immersive experience at the stadium. The Jags Gameday app, which is available for download on mobile devices and tablets at the iTunes and Android stores, allows fans to use virtual reality instant replay technology during games.
There are four 180-degree camera systems -- one on each sideline and in the back of each end zone -- and fans can use the app to access controllable instant replay with their choice of camera perspectives. Users can pan, tilt and zoom to get different angles on replays.
In addition to instant replay, the app also allows fans to immediately access game-day information such as parking maps, seating maps, team news, ticketing, weather and concession information. The app adjusts what is displayed on the home screen as kickoff approaches.
The Jaguars and VOKE previously teamed up to bring immersive live streams at EverBank Field as well as Wembley Stadium in London for the Jaguars' annual game there. In addition, the team said VOKE is developing proprietary software applications that coaches could use as teaching and practice tools for players.
"The Jaguars are using innovative technology to provide our fans with a first-rate experience. We chose to partner with VOKE because they are leaders in live-event VR technology," Hussain Naqi, the Jaguars' senior VP of international development, said in a statement. "Together, we’ve already brought VR technology to our International Series game as part of NFL on Regent Street. We intend to continue using VOKE’s VR technology to enhance our efforts at home and abroad."
