Immersive Experience for Football Fans with Intel True View
In partnership with Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC and Manchester City, Intel will deliver immersive experiences via 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.
As three of the most recognisable and innovative football clubs in the world, Arsenal, Liverpool and Premier League champions Manchester City will leverage Intel True View to capture every match element from every angle. 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 unmatched data-processing capability to deliver the experience to fans.
Beginning March 10, Intel’s leading volumetric technology will bring fans as close to the action on the pitch as the starting XI from the world’s most iconic football clubs. With dedicated supporters across the globe, football fans are passionate about the tactics as much as the goals scored, and Intel True View will highlight the immersive experiences unique to the style and skill of football.
The partnerships will introduce features that include multi-angle views of a play, laser wall – a virtual plane giving viewers a clear picture as to where players are positioned on the pitch, and be the player capabilities. 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.
After content is captured, a substantial amount of data is processed with servers powered by Core i7 and 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.
