(now a subsidiary of Kroenke Sports & Entertainment), parent company of the Outdoor Channel. However, with the expiration of the original patents, other companies have entered the market, and the term "Skycam" is used generically for any cable-controlled camera system.

Prior to the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, it was proposed that Skycam be used at the Ceremonies and Track & Field. It "crashed" into the football goal post at the Peristyle end of the Coliseum and fell to the ground in pieces. Skycam was first publicly used in fall 1984, at a preseason National Football League game in San Diego between the Chargers and 49ers, televised by CBS.
But its use did not become widespread until February 2001 when it was used for the XFL by NBC Sports where it was referred to as the X Cam.
