Intel will Live Stream MLB ‘Game of the Week’ in VR
Intel recently announced a three-year partnership with the MLB (Major League Baseball) to deliver VR experiences to all baseball fans via Intel True VR application. This started on June 6th and will continue with weekly live streams with the best of games every Tuesday, plus on-demand game replays and post-game highlights.
“As a VR partner of MLB, Intel is delivering a truly immersive virtual reality live stream where fans can experience the excitement of being at the ballpark every week,” said James Carwana, general manager, Intel Sports Group. “The addition of live stats to the Intel True VR weekly games is another example of how we’re giving fans more control to personalize their baseball experience.”
The “Intel True VR Game of the Week” experience powers its content with a full array of state-of-the-art 4K-resolution cameras that allows baseball fans have a closer look at the game and the ability to freely control their vantage point. Fans can select up to four camera angles in every game or a neatly produced Virtual Reality broadcast experience. Baseball and VR Fans will also be able to check updated team and player statistics during the game, including batter and pitcher, along with exclusive in-app commentary.
“We are excited to bring the Intel True VR experience to fans around the country every week,” said Kenny Gersh, EVP, Business, MLBAM. “Our partnership with Intel will keep MLB at the forefront of technological innovation for our fans, bringing them closer to the action.”
