Sankar Jayaram, Chief Technology Officer of Intel Sports, talked about ways fans are getting into the game through virtual reality technology on the May episode of “Future Talk”. Intel Sports’ technologies, True View and True VR create immersive and interactive experiences that give users the virtual feeling of being at a game.

Host Marty Wasserman spoke with Jayaram about how the technologies work. Each system uses cameras placed throughout stadiums to capture data. True View creates 3D replays, and True VR places the user at different viewing points.
