Monumental Sports & Entertainment (MSE) has moved to enhance presentation of Washington Wizards games with the installation of Intel True View technology at the NBA basketball franchise’s Capital One Arena.
The new tech will provide fans with access to 360-degree highlights in-arena, on-air and via digital channels for Wizards regular season games this season. As part of phase two renovations at Capital One Arena, a total of 38 5K cameras were mounted around the venue to capture volumetric video that, once processed, renders 360-degree replays, freeze frames and compelling stories from any perspective on the court.
Zach Leonsis, senior vice-president of strategic initiatives at MSE, said. “Intel True View enhancements will give broadcasters and fans access to replays from every angle in the arena, magnifying the viewing experience in the venue, on NBC Sports Washington, as well as digitally.”
James Carwana, general manager of Intel Sports, added: “Intel Sports is excited to partner with Monumental Sports & Entertainment and the Washington Wizards because of their commitment to delivering unrivalled live experiences through the use of innovative technology.
“This partnership is a great example of how sports and technology leaders are collaborating to enhance the fan experience. Intel True View will deliver next generation immersive media experiences and provide fans with more ways to engage without boundaries or limitations.”
MSE owns and operates both the Wizards and Capital One Arena. In July, it was announced that fans visiting the arena and Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium would have access to 5G after Verizon rolled out the technology in four new US cities.
