MELVILLE — ChyronHego has announced that FOX Sports will use ChyronHego‘s award-winning TRACAB Player Tracking System and Paint Sports Telestrator to incorporate real-time player tracking and advanced gameplay analysis data into its live coverage of NFL Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, February 2, 2014.
