Photo: Clemson utilizing new in-helmet video camera technology?

Friday March 7th, 2014

Could the "Quarterback Cam" be the next big thing in college football?

Clemson posted a photo on the team's official equipment Instagram account on Friday of a football helmet with a camera installed above the facemask. The caption reads:

The new age of football tech. @schuttsports cameras built into QB's helmets. #stateoftheart #Clemson @schuttvision

Schutt Vision is an in-helmet camera product put out by Schutt Sports. According to the company, Schutt Vision is "the first high definition video camera to be integrated into the football helmet itself -- allowing others to see exactly what a player is seeing on the field."

There's no official word as to whether the Tigers will use this technology any time soon. But the video from the Schutt website shows what the footage may look like.
