NBC Sports and the Dallas Cowboys announced that they have a new 360-degree “FreeD” look at red-zone plays for viewers watching football on tv and fans at the game in AT&T Stadium formerly known as Dallas Cowboys Stadium. A.k.a. as the DeathStar or the “Redneck Taj Mahal.” “FreeD” (free dimensional video) will debut during the Sept. 8 Sunday Night Football New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys opener. NBC Sports will use the system for the October 5 Notre Dame vs. Arizona State game, and the October 13 Washington Redskins vs Dallas Cowboys SNF game (in addition to any Dallas Cowboys home games flexed into primetime) at Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Fans in “Jerry’s World” will also see “FreeD” replays on the scoreboard at all home games, as well as on Dallas Cowboys local programming during the season. And yes, the GIANT SCOREBOARD that goes from 20 yard line to 20 yard line. The “FreeD” system will utilize 24 cameras mounted in the stadium — 12 in each red zone placed on both sides of the field from the 20-yard line to the goal line and in the back of each end zone — to provide replays of key red-zone plays from a 360-degree perspective. Charlotte Anderson, Dallas Cowboys VP:  “We are always striving to be on the cutting edge of technology and innovation. Just as our center hung video board has changed the way our fans view the game, we believe that this ‘FreeD’ technology will add a unique viewing dimension for our fans at every game.” Dallas Cowboys Stadium is one of the most technologically advanced in all of sports, so this does makes sense to debut the bells and whistles here. I’ve taken a tour inside all facets of the stadium, including the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders locker room. GO HERE to go inside the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders locker room. Paul M.
