PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University Professor Priya Narasimhan and electrical and computer engineering students will be testing multi-camera instant replays to smartphones at the Super Bowl this Sunday, Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

This is a first for YinzCam, a technology developed by Narasimhan, an associate professor of electrical  and computer engineering. She developed the idea of YinzCam after teaching novel sports technology classes at CMU. She predicted that the NFL would continue to use technology to benefit the game and fans.
