NBA On TNT Games Getting Even More Real With Intel True VR Technology

By Barry Janoff

November 7, 2017: Having already signed deals with MLB, NCAA and the International Olympic Committee, Intel has now joined with Turner Sports to become the exclusive provider of Virtual Reality for the NBA on TNT to “deliver live content for marquee match-ups.”

In addition, Intel will align with the NBA to become an authorized provider of virtual reality and 360-degree volumetric video with Intel freeD technology for official NBA broadcast partners globally.

The deal with Turner Sports will begin this February at the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles, which will be broadcast on TNT.

Financial terms of the multi-year deal were not shared.

“Intel is working with leagues and sports organizations all over the world to develop and deliver the most cutting-edge immersive media experiences that will make sports more engaging for the next generation of fans,” James Carwana, vp and GM for Intel Sports, said in a statement.

“This unique partnership with the NBA will enable us to work with official league broadcasters, including Turner Sports, to take their broadcasts to an unprecedented level and create new ways to immerse viewers in the game,” said Carwana.

Intel True VR technology will provide viewers of the NBA on TNT with a “lifelike virtual reality experience that allows users to choose multiple camera angles. Intel can also integrate 360-degree volumetric video into the virtual reality experience using Intel freeD technology.”

Every VR game experience will be available through the soon to be released NBA on TNT VR app on Samsung GearVR and Google Daydream headsets for download via the Oculus and Google Play stores.

Intel worked with the NCAA to provide hoops fans with its True VR technology earlier this year during March Madness.

In June, Intel began a three-year partnership with MLB to deliver live and on-demand virtual reality experiences to baseball fans.

Earlier this month, as part of its top tier partnership with the IOC, Intel said it would oversee the Intel Extreme Masters PyeongChang eSports tournament gaming experiences as part of the Winter Games in South Korea.

As part of its new NBA alliance, Intel said it would offer 360-degree volumetric video global league broadcast partners.

Looking ahead, Intel said it plans to integrate Intel freeD technology into the virtual reality experience “to enable fans to freeze a moment of game action and view it from the player’s point of view as if they were on the court.”

The technology can also be incorporated into game broadcasts allowing commentators to pause key moments in the game and view the action in 3D from any angle, according to Intel.

According to Will Funk, evp-property marketing and corporate partnerships for Turner Sports, “Turner Sports and Turner Ignite Sports have been at the forefront of delivering thrilling new experiences to fans. This unprecedented partnership, with Turner Sports as the first NBA broadcast partner to offer the latest Intel VR technology, does just that.”
