This sports broadcast system is the first of its kind as it shows an athlete's point of view in real time. From Spanish technology company First V1sion, this sportswear has cameras embedded in it. The real-time action will not only provide a new way for audiences to experience athletic events, but could also provide valuable information for referees making difficult calls.

Other sports incorporate player POV cameras by strapping GoPros or something similar to helmets. However, in many sports extra equipment would have a negative impact on the game. This sports broadcast system involves integrating a lightweight camera into the athletic gear at chest height. The high definition footage allows spectators of sports like tennis, soccer and basketball to feel more engaged in the action.
