Fans watching the Pacers play the Pelicans at home on Saturday night will get a special look via super slo-mo replays in HD on FOX Sports Indiana.

FSI is rolling out FOX's Phantom Cam technology for the game which will offer enhanced visuals of the action. The Phantom Cam was first used by FOX during the 2012 NLCS and World Series. FOX Sports regional networks began using it in MLB games this summer and in NHL and NBA games in November. Pacers fans may see it again on yet-to-be-determined dates later in the season.

Phantom Cam is a super slow-motion replay camera. It has the ability to record up to 5,000 frames per second. A typical slow-motion camera records at 380 frames per second or less. The Phantom Cam frame rate allows the broadcast to slow video down with clarity to show things the human eye and other cameras cannot pick up.
