Fox Sports Tests Weather Gadgets For Super Bowl












January 14, 2014 (AP) By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer Fox Sports has a few weather-related tricks up its sleeve for next month's Super Bowl telecast, and the network plans to test them out before the Feb. 2 game that will be the first played in a cold-weather climate. It will use this weekend's NFC title game in Seattle between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seahawks to test an infrared camera that will show http://hiltonsbtt.wikispaces.com how players' body temperatures change throughout the game. "I don't know what story that tells, but it might make for some pretty cool pictures," Eric Shanks, Fox Sports chief operating officer and executive producer, told the Television Critics Association on Monday. He said another unspecified device will show how wind affects a quarterback or kicker. Shanks said the network will have more high-tech 4K cameras than ever before to zoom in for what he called "that definitive angle." The network is touting the game as "the coldest and boldest Super Bowl ever" in its advertising. Shanks said the pre-game timing will be altered slightly because of the temperature so people aren't on the field standing around too long waiting for the players to come out. "We have spent a lot of time with the league going over contingency plans not unlike what we do for this weekend in Seattle," Shanks said, noting three NFL games on Fox this season were delayed because of weather. Forecasting company AccuWeather said Monday the game-day temperature will be 35 degrees with a chance http://kellyozxi.sosblogs.com of snow showers. However, Shanks downplayed the cold factor. <br>Full story http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireStory/fox-sports-tests-weather-gadgets-super-bowl-21521689
