We all know Laker ticket prices are higher than Whitney Houston… (I mean her voice, come on now). If you live in So-Cal and aren’t hooking up with the CEO of a multi-million dollar company, you’re probably not going to be walking by Jack on the way to your seat any time soon.
Thankfully, Fox Sports West: Prime Ticket will be bringing back their ‘Courtside View’ telecast for Friday’s game vs. Sacramento (7:30pm PT). No announcers. No in-game interviews. Here’s what they had to say about it:
Courtside View is achieved using five hand-held cameras placed at various locations along the perimeter of the court. Two robotic cameras will shoot the game from the baskets. An additional mobile camera captures the arena and game as a fan would see it roaming to and from his/her seat. Coverage imitates the human eye; there will be limited use of zoom lenses or sharp cutting from camera to camera.
