3. Babolat Pure Aero (new)
www.babolat.com

Get out on the tennis court this fall and winter!

Developed with Rafael Nadal, the newest iteration confirms the Pure Aero as the racket of reference for spin. For Babolat like any tennis player, tennis is a lot more than just winning. It’s about striving to improve, challenging others, and always getting better by being fueled by fight. The new Pure Aero channels this very same spirit: Babolat took a successful racket, dared to enhance it, and raised the overall performance by increasing control and feel.

Since the launch of the first Aero racket in 2005, Babolat has continued to improve its aerodynamic concept through a series of innovations bringing increased power and spin that have made this racket so successful with a total of 19 Grand Slam wins. Now with added stability and feel that today’s players demand, the new

Pure Aero ushers in the next chapter of Babolat’s success story.
To appreciate the step forward the Pure Aero represents, it’s important to understand the evolution of the modern game, and especially the use of spin by today’s players. Alex Israel, tennis category manager explains,

“Spin has become essential in tennis. Originally used as a defensive tactic to wear out an opponent, players now apply spin as an offensive move to create an advantage within the point. And as the game becomes faster, they are now looking for more precision.”

In developing the optimal spin-friendly innovation, Babolat asked 3500+ testers worldwide an important question: Which racket benefits on a Pure Aero frame are most important to you?
With Chomarat, Babolat engineers developed an innovative solution to maximize stability in the racket. Carbon Ply Stabilizer is a new generation of woven and sewn carbon fibers integrated in the throat of the racket to give the new Pure Aero extraordinary stability. This carbon is more rigid, bringing more stability at impact, which increases control.
 

4. Tifosi Eyewear

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Getting 'Tech Ready' for Football Season

Rick and Sully have been anticipating the start of football season.

Camps are open and the pre-season games have started in the NFL.

The Super Bowl is even in Atlanta this year!

College student-athletes are reporting and practices are ongoing.

What's new in tech this football season, on the field and off?
 

Have a listen:



1.  The HALO Shirt - may reduce concussions
About $100  - Available in October

Advanced Exoskeletal Systems (AEXOS) is now offering a new technology called HALO that promises to reduce whiplash when you’re playing a high-impact game like football. The technology, which the brothers started developing in 2015, has been endorsed by Safe 4 Sports, an organization that advocates for injury prevention among athletes.

The HALO is, at first blush, a compression shirt that you can wear under your uniform. But it comes with an “impact responsive collar” that sits against the back of your neck to fortify your vertebrae. A silicone-based postural support system is built into the shirt to safeguard major muscle groups along your upper body.
 

2. GPS Technology on the football field

How about a look into how much kids are running in games versus practice to kind of cater towards conditioning and prepare them for the season.

Some teams are partnered up with Sports Performance Track to utilize GPS player tracker technology to capture crucial practice and game information on speed, endurance, intensity and individual athletic exertion.
This is info teams have never has before.

3. Hudl
www.hudl.com

Hudl is software offers tools to edit and share film for coaches, and the ability for players to make recruitment videos for colleges. According to its website, Hudl has more than 160,000 active teams and 4.3 million unique visitors from around the world, including teams in North America, South America, Asia, Africa and Europe.
For any football coach, Hudl is a hub and just part of the everyday experience.
 

4. Your Call Football - for fans
www.cantina.co

Your Call Football—known as YCF— combines entertainment, sports innovation, and advanced technology to put fans at the center of live sporting events by letting them control the action on the field. For the first time, fans can impact the game by voting on plays. They can then see how their votes affect the game in real-time.
It's gamifying the football we watch on TV. Now there is a "game within the game."
 

5. LG C8: The best TV for watching sports
www.lg.com


$2000-3000 depending on screen size
The C8 has excellent motion handling due to its fast response time and its ability to clear up blur. The gray uniformity is very good, and the dirty screen effect is not an issue when watching sports. The image remains accurate when viewed from the side, and it's suitable for large rooms unlike similarly premium models like the Samsung Q9FN. The picture quality is great due to the perfect blacks and wide color gamut.
 

6. NFL Mobile App  $99.00 for the entire year $24.99/quarter


The app lets you follow specific teams and news for only that team. It's a little clunky, but nothing too bad. This is also the home of NFL's Game Pass streaming service. It costs $99.99 per year or $24.99 per quarter of a year. You can watch every non-blackout football game. That means you can't watch home team games, but you can watch anything else. There are other options for live streaming, but the content and news is fairly top notch.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Tech for Improving the Fan Experience

Fan Experience...  it's a term we've been hearing a lot of recently.

As fans and patrons pay more for tickets to concerts, sporting events and other activities, they want to get the best value possible.

So teams, venues and organizations are looking to optimize the Fan Experience in different ways.

Rick and Sully discuss..

1.   Improving Wi-Fi in Stadiums and Arenas
https://www.extremenetworks.com/

Rick had the opportunity to talk with Glenn Johnson, the Carolina Hurricanes’ vice president of information technology, and Kevin Wittnebert, Extreme Networks associate director of sports and entertainment, about what fans want in arenas and stadiums- fast Wi-fi.

Today’s consumers expect to be able to text, post to Instagram, send a Snapchat, stream a video, check their sports apps and browse the internet without any delay or lag.

So what happens when an arena that can hold up to 20,000 people lacks a speedy network for attendees to connect to? The IT team at PNC Arena – home to the Carolina Hurricanes and NC State’s men’s basketball team – asked themselves this exact question when they started receiving poor feedback on the arena’s Wi-Fi experience. As the go-to venue for more than 150 annual events, and challenged with an IT team of only four people with 770,000 square feet to cover, they looked to Extreme Networks to partner and deploy its end-to-end Wi-Fi solution.

Together, the Carolina Hurricanes and Extreme Networks overhauled the Wi-Fi network ahead of the 2017 season. As a result of the deployment, the venue has seen a significant uptick in fan usage of the Wi-Fi network – posting to social, streaming videos and interacting with team centric content – in the 2017 season.

Here are a few highlights:
    Average unique Wi-Fi users grew from 18% in 2016 to 29% in 2017 to 35% so far in 2018.
    Concurrent Wi-Fi users on the network grew from 22% in 2016 to 28% in 2017 to 30% so far in 2018.
    Peak data transferred in 2016 averaged 587 GBs. That number grew to over 2 TB of data in 2017.
 

2. USGA Launches Immersive Digital Experience to Bring 117 Years of U.S. Open Championship Golf History to Life

For golf fans...

Building on a track record of innovative “firsts” in the digital presentation of its most renowned championship golf property, the USGA, in association with Rolex, has launched the U.S. Open History Experience, a fully immersive timeline that brings 117 years of U.S. Open Championships to life on usopen.com.
The timeline allows fans to engage digitally with one of the sports world’s most storied championships while celebrating the U.S. Open’s legendary champions, signature moments and iconic venues. Unlike any other digital property in sports, the experience features a user-driven journey through time by immersing fans in carefully curated videos, photos, articles, championship scoring and player statistics.

To create the U.S. Open History Experience, USGA researchers tapped the archives of the USGA Golf Museum, including publications, periodicals, magazines, daily newspapers and personal correspondence from as far back as the first championship in 1895. The result is a one-of-a-kind digital timeline that will be of interest to golf fans, sports fans and researchers alike.


 
3. NHL Smart Puck


With the Stanley Cup Finals being so exciting...

The NHL has already announced that the Smart Puck era is quickly approaching, which is exciting news for hockey fans all over the globe.

The league is planning on having this added technology at their disposal for the start of the 2019-20 season, but there’s a chance that we could get a preview of it at the start of next year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The technology will allow the league to track the puck’s movement on the ice at a rate of 200 times per second. That means that coaches will be able to get more information when it comes to possession, shot placement, shot distance and probably speed. If the coaches are getting their hands on that information, it means that they’ll be able to provide their players with even more specific data.
 

4. Wait Time
www.thewaittimes.com

WaitTime’s innovative artificial intelligence delivers real-time data to you and your fans to help you make smart decisions.

This is all about Crowd Intelligence
WaitTime’s technology is all encompassing, sensors are installed inside venue concourses, data is then released and interpreted using artificial intelligence to determine the length of lines. The results are shown on real-time dashboards, both on digital signs inside the venue and on a smartphone app.
The goal is to reduce lines, remove bottlenecks and get people served quicker so they can get back to watching the action.

 
5. Sports Business Awards has a "Best in Mobile Fan" Experience catagory

The Sports Business Awards were just held a week ago and the app, 15 Seconds of Fame won the "Best in Mobile Fan" catagory

The 15SOF team will process more than 5,000 MLB telecast feeds each season and will use a groundbreaking proprietary technology to deliver personalized video directly to fans after the game. In addition, the agreement provides 15SOF the ability to capture and deliver fan footage from special jewel events such as the All-Star Game presented by MasterCard and postseason games.
"This is what fans want and now they can get it," said Joshpe, CEO of 15SOF. "Moments like that foul ball are what we're tapping into. MLBAM has really been a pioneer in the digital space and really appreciates the value of these kinds of moments for fans. We're very excited about it."
The partnership also gives 15SOF access to scoreboard video moments from participating MLB ballparks, where teams will be able to integrate 15SOF through the free MLB.com Ballpark app. This is especially a big deal in the national pastime, where fans are more part of the action than in any other sport.
 

6. Golden State Warriors shoot to augment fan experience with digital tech


Not only are the Golden State Warriors leading the way in reaching the NBA Finals, but also in Fan Experience.
The NBA's defending champions are using chatbots, augmented and virtual reality to bolster fan engagement. Now they're sifting through fan data to better target them with merchandise, tickets and other offers.

5.  HelloTech

www.hellotech.com

HelloTech -- a leading on-demand, in-home technology support startup -- specializes in TV mounting and installation, and has compiled tips to avoid the “Top 5 Most Common TV Mounting Fails” just in time for next week’s game. These tips are foolproof in guiding your readers in optimizing their TV viewing parties while also helping them reduce stress when preparing their surround sound, streaming and more.

FAIL #1: Choosing the Wrong Mount
Before anything else, you need to choose the TV mount right for you. Most important of all, double check the load-bearing capacity of the mount. One that supports 33 pounds is only good for small 15-inch TVs, not for your 55-inch smart TV. HelloTech urges you to choose wisely because watching your expensive television falling and shattering right in the middle of your Super Bowl party would be rather embarrassing (not to mention gut-wrenching).

FAIL #2: Thinking You Can Go It Alone
TV mounting is a two-person job they are wide and heavy and  can hit 50 lbs! That's why HelloTech recommends that at least one person helps you out. An extra pair of hands will certainly be needed to lift and hold brackets in place while you figure out which screws go where.

FAIL #3: Ignoring Those Wall Studs
HelloTech recommends that you be extra sure that you have indeed found the right studs before you start drilling. That way, you don’t have to suffer through having any wrong holes repaired. Additionally, make sure you use the right drill bit. Otherwise, the drilled holes might just be too small or too big for the screws.

FAIL #4: Hammering Near the TV
If during the installation process you need to hammer nails, don’t do so until you have transferred the TV to somewhere safe. This precaution is necessary because any nail that slips from your fingers could hit the TV screen, rendering it useless.

FAIL #5: Buying the Wrong Cables and Wires
HelloTech advises that you carefully plan where all of the cables will go so that they won’t look cluttered and won’t be peeking from behind the TV. Unfortunately, some people can take the organizing too far, so they end up with cables not reaching their intended ports if this happens, never force the cables. Don’t try to bend the TV just to make things connect. These actions can damage  the screen, the ports, the cables, or the wall.


 Enjoy the game!
