Six-camera rig will record NBA players' every move on the court

NBA will use motion-sensing camera that will track players' every move on the court

It looks like basketball is about to get an injection of technology, with the National Basketball Association becoming the first major US sports league to deploy motion-sensing cameras to track its players in action.

This upcoming season will see the tech deployed into all 30 NBA arenas, with a company called Stats coming in and using a six-camera rig. This rig will record data 25 times per second, which will track players' positions, and the basketball itself. Stats will then create reports from the acquired data, where it'll offer in-depth details such as which exact part of the basketball a player touches, the player's speed during a play, and just how close defenders get to other players during a game.

 

This will see basketball 2.0 arrive, and it should provide fans of NBA many things to discuss and go over, while the game is being played, and even more so after the game is finished.
