ESPN and Full Sail University, an Orlando area school that specializes in entertainment, media & the arts, are collaborating on a research and development lab.
The Full Sail University Sports Lab Powered by ESPN, unveiled Thursday, will be used for R&D of new studio and remote technologies. The lab will also work in conjunction with the Innovation Lab at ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World, which was heavily involved in the development of ESPN 3D.
“ESPN has long been an industry leader in utilizing cutting-edge technology to bring fans the best content,” said Anthony Bailey, vp emerging technology at ESPN. “The energy and creativity that the students and staff at Full Sail University will bring to this facility make this a natural location for this lab and will help us develop new tools to provide fans the best on-air coverage of sports.”
The mission will be to not only develop new technology enhancements such as virtual applications but to provide students at Full Sail the opportunity to work alongside ESPN's emerging technology team to gain real-world experience.
