Viaccess-Orca Live Streams UHD 360° Football

Viaccess-Orca and French TV channel TF1 trialled a live UltraHD 360° VR broadcast of a football match on the 29th March. The signal was encoded using HEVC and sent to a private test audience. The intent was to provide the audience with an actual stadium ambience. Harmonic, Keepixo, VideoStitch, AmpVisual TV and Digital Immersion also worked on the trial. The broadcast will also be shown at NAB 2016, on stand SU1210.
