Now we extrapolate on a few current trends for future sports TV


Trend A)
We do not watch TV as we used too. Some people do binge watching and the internet is at times nothing but the worlds largest digital video recorder.

Trend B)
NHL is exploring the route with Go-Pro mounted cameras on players and similar ideas.

Trend C)
Computer games are of massive interest to the young generation.

Trend C)
Oculus Rift could be a new way to in crazy ways get the feel of the action in a game.

This is, by the way, what Floorball's older cousin Field hockey is playing with... via the Telegraph...


OK, let us put all this together. With smaller cheaper better cameras - we will see them everywhere - and well a camera is nothing but a light sensor...
So who is the producer that will be able to edit all this in real time? He or she is not human. There must be software that edits the streams of images in real time. This means that the user can also - maybe not be the producer - but the end user ought to be able to pick different modes of real time editing - maybe by just using "filters" like we have at instagram. The end watcher pick either one editing mode or change the editing mode by using sliders controlling, ball cams, drone cams, team cams or wide game cams.. So maybe not one single end user will have exactly the same stream from any big game...anymore..

Then if we know exactly where the players are on the court and how they move as well where the ball is. It should not be completely impossible to move from a live game into a simulation mode and via a computer game instead either replay the last minutes of any big World Cup final... or just take the game in your own hands to try to beat the reality?
Yupp, we'll do it in 4k at least and maybe on a head set like an Oculus rift too..
Those roller coaster demos we have seen with headsets on will look like a joke and the clumsy big cameras we have today will be antique one day..
And watching sports will never be the same ;-D

Or what do you think - the one doing this best will earn enough money for the doughnuts.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
