Intel Partners Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City Football Clubs to Give Fans Immersive Experience

Intel is working with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City football clubs to give fans a truly immersive experience that would allow them to relive moments from a match from any angle, including from the perspective of their  favourite player as they run up to take a penalty or make an improbable goal-line clearance.

Beginning 10 March, fans will be able to enjoy Intel True View’s volumetric capture to 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.

James Carwana, vice president and general manager of Intel Sports, said, “Immersive media experiences continue to create more opportunities for sports teams and leagues to put the fan experience first. With the expansion of Intel True View into more stadiums with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City, we have the chance to transform the experience for fans of one of the world’s top sports leagues with our leading and differentiated volumetric technology.”

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.

Intel True View’s volumetric capture 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 to provide an entirely new perspective to fans.

Billy Hogan, managing director and chief commercial officer of Liverpool Football Club, said, “We’re delighted to be working with Intel to bring this advanced Intel True View technology to our supporters. Intel True View enables fans to immerse themselves even further into the game and has the power to add a new depth to match highlights, which can significantly improve the supporter experience. This technology has the potential to add a new dynamic to how people interact with the game and create different conversations with our fans around the world. We strive to utilise the latest technology to be at the forefront of the experience our supporters have, whether that’s on-screen or online, and with the help of our newest partner Intel, that is certainly set to continue.”
