In an unprecedented first for GoPro, a new partnership with the National Hockey League (NHL) and the NHL Players’ Association (NHLPA) will bring hockey fans closer to the action on the ice than ever before. Beginning with this weekend’s NHL All-Star Skills Competition and All-Star Game, the NHL will use GoPro cameras to deliver viewers never-before-seen perspectives of the game.
The partnership will capitalize on the recent announcement of GoPro’s Professional Broadcast Solution, developed in collaboration with Vislink, which enable GoPro HERO4 cameras with a professional, live, HD wireless broadcast capabilities. The solution will be showcased during the NHL All-Star Weekend and provide real-time content in the live broadcast of these events.
Joining forces with the NHL and tapping into new GoPro and Vislink live broadcast technology will fundamentally change the way we view sports on television. We cannot wait for you to see it all come to life this weekend!
The NHL All-Star Skills Competition will air on Saturday, Jan. 24 at 7pm EST (NBC, CBC and TVA Sports) and the All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 25 at 5pm EST (NBC, CBC and TVA Sports) so be sure to watch and witness this huge next step in GoPro and NHL history.
