NFL’s New Camera Angle Met With Mixed Reviews

As the NFL season heats up, it seems that the camera crew and media teams are looking to add some varied elements into the presentation of the game.

While nothing changes for the in person viewership, people watching the games at home experienced a new and immersive experience with a camera angle that brought them onto the field.

A recent Deadline article recaps the event and details the varied reception that it received from fans.

CBS viewers were subjected to new camera angles while watching the NFL game between the Baltimore Ravens and the New York Giants which has gotten mixed reviews from fans.

After the first quarter with no scores from either team, things in the second quarter got a little bit more interesting. The Ravens were the first to get on the board with a touchdown and a field goal giving them a lead of 7 points.

It was during the kickoff in the second quarter when viewers were seemingly transported into the action on the field with a new angle.

NFL fans were able to see a traditional view of the kickoff but when the receiving team got a hold of the ball, the camera that hangs above the field started swaying back and forth giving a new perspective to the run and putting viewers in the middle of the action.

It was a new way of experiencing the action on the field for people at home and it was received with mixed reviews. Not everyone enjoyed the angles with some complaining on social media about suffering from dizziness after watching it play out on TV.”

With something as widespread and popular as the NFL, it can be a daunting task to try something new, especially when it involves the viewership of people watching at home.

The league took a risk, and even if it was not met with 100% acceptance, the risk demonstrates that the league is committed to improving the viewing experience and trying new things for their audience.

This is a valuable lesson to implement, especially in the business world.

Taking risks shows that your business is dedicated to improving the customer experience, and every business should absolutely be committed to this cause.

Not every risk you take will be well-received, and that is okay.

Focus your efforts on improving some aspect of your business or outreach, and model your risks around these goals.

Like the NFL showed with their new camera angle, be a business that takes risks fearlessly, but with intention.
