Intel’s immersive video production system True View has found a home in two more NFL stadiums: Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
The system is now installed in 13 NFL stadiums total including the home fields for the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots and Washington Redskins.
Intel wouldn’t comment on plans to install True View at additional NFL stadiums but said it continues to work to explore opportunities to deploy and expand Intel True View implementations across the league.
True View works by installing 38 5K Ultra HD cameras around the stadium to capture volumetric footage. The footage is then processed (at a rate of 1 terabyte for every 15- to 30-second clip) by Intel’s servers and computers and rendered at 3D multi-perspective clips.
True View produced clips through the NFL Mobile app and the NFL channel on YouTube as well as at the stadium. Intel said it also partners with NFL broadcasters CBS, FOX, ESPN and NBC to create clips and replays with its production technology. For Super Bowl LI, Intel and Fox Sports offered the “Be the Player” perspective and let broadcasters pause the game and show the field from the player’s standpoint.
Intel True View has been used during the Super Bowls in 2016, 2017 and 2018, the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, 2016 NBA Finals, MLB’s 2016 All-Star Weekend, and the 2017 and 2018 NCAA March Madness Final Four. The technology is installed in the home arenas for the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks, and in La Liga soccer stadiums including Camp Nou (FC Barcelona), Santiago Bernabeu (Real Madrid CF), Wanda Metropolitano (Atletico de Madrid), Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan (Sevilla FC), San Mames (Athletic de Bilbao) and Mestalla (Valencia CF).
