NBC Universal partnered with Vertigo for the 2009 NFL season to design and develop an online experience that would attract and engage football fans with an interactive program that complemented its live broadcast of Sunday Night Football. The innovative use of multiple, synchronized cameras let fans watch the action from many angles—all in true 720p HD.
By the conclusion of the 2009 NFL season, Sunday Night Football Extra had successfully streamed 1 million hours of video to approximately 2.2 million unique visitors.
Vertigo’s work on Sunday Night Football Extra helped NBC Sports earn a 2010 Sports Emmy® Nomination. The Sports Emmy® Awards recognize outstanding achievement in sports television coverage.
The Silverlight player Vertigo created provided a unique live experience by combining:
• Stunning HD-quality video
• Multiple live cameras
• Full DVR controls
• Interactive Timeline and Key Plays Menu
• Chat with NBC's Mike Florio
• Game Stats
• Game highlights, interviews, and more
