ZOOM…The “New Normal” in live football

Zoom has been the way forward during the pandemic for many platforms from live TV to live football.

Many of us were not aware of zoom till we met COVID-19 and a worldwide lockdown became the normal. We needed a new way to meet each other and along came a ready made platform called zoom.

During a football game (see pic above) the screens requires no less than 23 men behind the scenes to make it happen.

Needless to say this will only be avaliable in the more affluent football grounds and my question is what happens if a stray ball hits the screen ?

I think this is a great way forward if you cant allow fans in the stadium.

Needless to say Erik Yuan has made nearly $4 billion in 3 months as usage of his video conferencing software goes through the roof during the pandemic.

Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing service you can use to virtually meet with others – either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats – and it lets you record those sessions to view later.

When people are talking about Zoom, you’ll usually hear the following phrases: Zoom Meeting and Zoom Room. A Zoom Meeting refers to a video conferencing meeting that’s hosted using Zoom. You can join these meetings via a webcam or phone. Meanwhile, a Zoom Room is the physical hardware setup that lets companies schedule and launch Zoom Meetings from their conference rooms.

Zoom Rooms require an additional subscription on top of a Zoom subscription and are an ideal solution for larger companies.
