Super Bowl replays that show what Tom Brady seesFor Super Bowl 2017, 360-degree replay technology developed by Intel allows TV viewers to see a player's point of view. Think of it as a virtual camera inside a player's helmet.
[MUSIC] Well the 38 cameras around the stadium all work together to create this volumetric capture of everything that's going on On the field. So to sync those, each camera is tied to a computer of its own, a server in a rack that then reconstructs all the video into one big volumetric capture of everything that's going on. And so, essentially that's how it's synced, is it's completely reconstructed into three dimensional video, with. For every square inch that is on the field. And so we call that a fox hole. Which is basically a three dimensional pick hole. We've also develope a whole new feature, the be the player feature. We'll be really close to see the players on the field, even thought the cameras are actually mounted up into the rafters. But through this new volumetric capture You can use a virtual camera, and the virtual camera can get very close to the action on the field, it can be anywhere on the field, as a matter of fact, and what you'll see in the Visa Player Feature is we'll position the camera as if it's right in front of the facemasks of one of the football players. [MUSIC] This weekend [UNKNOWN] you're gonna see 3 clips from the intel 360 replay system. 2 of them are gonna be the player, where you can actually position the virtual camera where you can look like you're seeing through what the player's thought and then there would be one intel 360 replay which is Basically a 360 angle view of a key play.
