PGA Tour Taps Intel To Produce Live VR, 360 Video Content at Six Tournaments

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 17:19:17 -0400

The PGA TOUR and Intel have inked a deal to produce and globally distribute live virtual reality and live 360 video at six PGA TOUR events in 2017 and 2018. Beginning with the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Sept. 21-24 and the Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, NJ, Sept. 28-Oct. 1. Intel will produce the live VR experience with Intel True VR technology, providing access to areas of the course that can’t be experienced anywhere else — even by fans onsite.
 
Intel True VR uses panoramic, stereoscopic camera pods to create a more natural and realistic view from any direction for a more immersive VR environment.
 
“After two years of experimenting with virtual reality on the PGA TOUR, we are very excited by the viewer experience that Intel produces,” says PGA TOUR Chief Media Officer Rick Anderson. “From the TOUR’s perspective, our goal with VR is to create an experience that is completely different than what you can get as a fan at our events or by viewers of our traditional-media platforms. We are confident that Intel’s True VR technology allows us to achieve this goal. The exclusive partnership with Intel furthers our mission of creating a total fan experience that showcases our product on a global stage.”

SMPTE Approves ST 2110 Standards for Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 17:22:05 -0400

SMPTE announced the approval of the first standards within SMPTE ST 2110, Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks, a new standards suite that specifies the carriage, synchronization, and description of separate elementary essence streams over professional internet protocol (IP) networks in real-time for the purposes of live production, playout, and other professional media applications.
 
With SMPTE ST 2110 standards, intrafacility traffic now can be all-IP, which means that organizations can rely on one common data-center infrastructure rather than two separate facilities for SDI and IP switching/routing. The foundation for the first SMPTE ST 2110 standards came from Video Services Forum (VSF) Technical Recommendation for Transport of Uncompressed Elementary Stream Media Over IP (TR-03), which VSF agreed to make available to SMPTE as a contribution toward the new suite of standards.
 
More information about SMPTE ST 2110 standards is available at www.smpte.org/st-2110.

The program encompasses collaborations with acclaimed manufacturers of field recorders, VR live cameras and live-streaming software, mixing plug-ins, and VR platforms.
 
Aaton Digital CEO Jacques Delacoux says, “VR is an exciting development with enormous potential, and we are delighted to collaborate with Sennheiser to add this VR-enabling interface to our latest Aaton Digital location sound recorders Cantar X3 and CantarMini.”
 
The Cantar X3 and CantarMini digital multitrack sound recorders are in use globally for movie and broadcast production and also for music recording.
 
“The future of audio is in immersive-sound experience, and perhaps this is nowhere more apparent than in the field of VR,” says Véronique Larcher, co-director, AMBEO, Sennheiser. “With the launch of the AMBEO VR mic last year, we have provided an easy-to-use tool for 3D-audio productions, while our AMBEO Blueprints website provides ample information on recording and mixing 3D audio. Now our new partnership program helps content creators to design the full VR experience with ease.”
