One of the most enjoyable aspects of camera-integrated apps like Snapchat and Instagram is playing with filters.
Game Changer MVP brings this fun to sporting events on a larger scale with its “Filter Fan Cam” technology. Cameras at a given event film the faces of fans and the video feed runs through a computer where the fan filters are applied and broadcast onto the arena’s jumbotron.
Professional Bull Riders (PBR) began using Game Changer MVP’s fan cam last year in Las Vegas — and this year, you’ll be able to catch the Fan Cam at each of the 26 events in the Unleash The Beast series throughout the country.
PBR Arena Video Director Kelly McCommons attests that the Fan Cam has helped bring a great level of energy into arenas full of bull riding fans.
“It really it brings a lot of attention to the jumbotron in a way that is new and exciting for a lot of our fans,” McCommons states. “It’s a really great way to get people to interact with our content and our own custom filters that Game Changer is able to provide for us. We love it because it gets the fans engaged.”
McCommons also sees potential in the tool to integrate it into sponsorship packages in the future.
“I think it’s a great tool that eventually will play a part in our sponsorships because it is one of the most interactive things that we do and it gets people’s attention pretty quick. It really gives a chance for us to showcase the names of potential sponsors recognized on the screen with something that’s very cool and interactive.”
Because Game Changer’s technology is easily portable and straightforward, McCommons and the video team are able to integrate within all the different arenas that the Unleash the Beast Series travels to.
In doing so, they catch the eye of fans and tech professionals alike.
“We travel to different venues all over the country, but we travel with our own LED screens. Sometimes we use the in-house screens depending on how good they are. But we get a lot of different markets that don’t have the technology that this software brings to the table. So we get a lot of interaction from different people around the country who have not seen this type of technology before that are really engaged by it and very surprised by it.”
As a partner of Game Changer MVP, PBR works closely with COO Matt Coy to make sure the Fan Cam continues to work seamlessly and add to the fun of the event.
“They’ve been great over email as well as over the phone,” McCommons states. “They come out to events when they can and they’re very responsive on new projects that we’re working on and any changes we need for content or graphics. They’ve been awesome since the start.”
