Back in January, at CES 2016, Intel had announced several sports-oriented collaborations, including Replay Technologies, as a testament to the company’s growing interest in the digitization of sports. Intel states that it is especially excited about how data is re-inventing the way people consume and interact with sports media.
Now, Intel is taking the next step in its collaboration with Replay Technologies, stating that:
Together, we will scale this new category for sports entertainment that we call immersive sports, which is attracting the attention of leagues, venues, broadcasters and fans. Immersive sports requires the high-performance computing Intel is known for, and it’s also data driven – fueling the continued build out of the cloud.
For athletes, coaches, broadcasters and fans, the ability to capture, analyze and share data adds compelling new dimensions to the game.
