In partnership with Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC and Manchester City, Intel will deliver immersive experiences via Intel True View at Emirates Stadium, Anfield and the Etihad Stadium.
Now their fans worldwide can enjoy the biggest moments of the match from every angle, whether they’re watching the Rights Holders’ live broadcast and highlights or reliving the action post-match from their favourite clubs’ official website, mobile app or social media.
Intel True View re-creates the action on the pitch and presents that from an ideal vantage point or player’s perspective, using Intel’s data-processing capability.
Beginning March 10, Intel’s volumetric technology will bring fans as close to the action on the pitch. The partnerships will introduce features that include:
- Multi-angle views of a play: Intel Sports’ volumetric video process creates 360-degree replays and highlight reels from every conceivable angle, using 38 5K ultra-high-definition cameras.
- Laser wall: A virtual plane giving viewers a clear picture as to where players are positioned on the pitch.
- Be the player capabilities: Intel True View freezes a moment in the match to let fans see the pitch from the eyes of a player. This also enables presenters and pundits to share a new level of insight into the tactics and decisions made by players.
How Intel True View Works
The process begins with volumetric video, the capture and rendering technique behind Intel True View. Using the volumetric capture method, footage is recorded from 38 5K ultra-high-definition cameras that includes height, width and depth of data to produce voxels (pixels with volume). After content is captured, a substantial amount of data is processed with servers powered by Intel Core i7 and Intel Xeon processors. The software then re-creates all the viewpoints of a fully volumetric 3D person or object. That information renders a virtual environment in spectacular, multi-perspective 3D that enables users to experience a captured scene from any angle and perspective and can provide true 6 degrees of freedom.
