CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The Stripe the Stadium FanCam is now live! Fighting Illini fans striped Memorial Stadium orange and blue for Saturday's game against Ohio State and at halftime, the 360-degree, high-definition image captured the atmosphere in its entirety.
Fans can "step inside" the image of Memorial Stadium and look around, as if they were standing at midfield during halftime. The resolution of 5 billion pixels is so high that fans will be able to zoom in to find themselves or friends anywhere in the stadium, "tag" themselves in the photo, and share via email, Facebook and Twitter.
When you visit the Stripe the Stadium FanCam, you will have the chance to win a VIP game day experience for the Michigan game on Nov. 12 or the Wisconsin game on Nov. 19. If you weren't at the game, you can still enter to win using the button on the right side of the screen. You also can check out video links on the left side to get a glimpse inside Illinois athletics.
Fans also will have the ability to purchase one-of-a-kind photo products, powered by the Durham-based company Replay Photos. One of the options allows fans to place their picture on the scoreboard at Memorial Stadium and purchase as a print, custom framed photo or photo on canvas.
