Radiant Images captures Pro Bowl streamed live in 8K into 360-degree immersive projection dome over 5G Network
LOS ANGELES (February 5, 2020) – Hawkeye Systems (OTCQB: HWKE) announces that future subsidiary Radiant Images assisted in an 8K live stream of the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl into projection domes through a 5G network, marking the first-ever 5G broadcast of a major sports event.
Radiant is well known for groundbreaking innovations in volumetric video capture and high resolution immersive 8K streaming. The Pro Bowl broadcast in Orlando on Jan. 26 was streamed to a 360-degree immersive projection dome in Miami, providing viewers with a unique first-person POV of the game.
“We are excited to be pushing the boundaries of human experiences and connectivity through technology,” said Corby Marshall, CEO of Hawkeye Systems. “With the rapid evolution of 5G, people will be able to see and experience content in the highest resolution and lowest latency. The audience will now be able to be immersed into worlds previously only dreamed about or in fantasy, based on the capture of historic, live events or live physical content, to give a true sense of telepresence.”
NOTE: Video and images from the production can be found on Hawkeyes’ website at www.hawkeyesystemsinc.com.
The 2020 Pro Bowl, the National Football League’s all-star game for the 2019 season, took place on Jan. 26 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando and was televised nationally by ESPN. Radiant utilized its 360 Live Stream 8K capabilities for the event through a 5G network. Since 2015, Radiant has been making innovative developments in immersive media using 5G with collaborators such as Nokia.
Radiant was part of the production team that utilized a range of 360 cameras and rigs to capture the action in high resolution 8K 360. The content was sent through a 5G network in real time and broadcast on a massive dome in Miami to create a truly unique immersive experience. Viewers inside the dome were transported into the stadium and right into the action on the field, giving fans access to players like never before. The 8K 360 video also was delivered through head-mounted displays as well as through 5G enabled mobile phones.
5G represents the next step into an age of permanently connected, real-time computing. This new age of connectivity is poised to have a profound impact on both consumer and business IT, triggering a wave of innovation not seen since the evolution of the Internet. Companies and organizations across a range of industries will continue to look to Radiant to find solutions and opportunities to more fully harness this evolving technology.
