What’s New: Intel and the National Football League (NFL)* have installed Intel® True View, the leading immersive media technology, in two more NFL stadiums: Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, and the home of Super Bowl LIII, Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Together, the NFL and Intel will deliver immersive 360-degree replays that will retell amazing moments of the game in the 13 stadiums equipped with Intel True View and across digital and mobile platforms.
“With the expansion of Intel True View into more stadiums, we have the opportunity to let fans experience game-changing plays on sports’ biggest stage. We’re redefining the way that fans can watch games, as Intel True View brings unique perspectives and insights for everyone, from the casual follower to the die-hard fanatic.”
– James Carwana, vice president and general manager of Intel Sports
Why It Matters: By providing immersive replays, sports fans can see highlights from every vantage point, even from the players’ perspective, without using a helmet camera. Intel True View highlights are the best way to relive amazing NFL moments:
- Determine what really happened by reviewing the call from multiple perspectives
- Study form and technique from the best view possible
- Analyze game strategy and tactics with added commentary and graphics overlay to provide a deeper understanding and appreciation of the game
How It Works: For the 2018 NFL season, 13 NFL stadiums will be equipped with dozens of 5K ultra-high-definition cameras that capture the action, while Intel-based servers process up to 1 terabyte of data for volumetric presentation (height, width and depth) for each 15- to 30-second clip. Using voxels (pixels with volume), the technology renders dynamic replays in multi-perspective 3D to create 360-degree reconstructions of plays that can be viewed from any angle.
Where to See It: Intel True View is installed in 13 NFL stadiums across the AFC and NFC. Starting this week, content is accessible via NFL.com/trueview, the NFL Mobile app, the NFL channel on YouTube* and other endpoints across the NFL and participating teams. Fans will also experience the enhanced replays in-stadium for closer views of the action on the field at the following stadiums:
