- Why it matters to you Intel’s immersive True VR technology will put viewers of the 2018 Olympic Games on the slopes with the world’s greatest athletes.
- Intel said it plans to broadcast 16 events live and offer another 16 on demand from the 2018 Olympic Games in South Korea, broadcast using Intel’s True VR technology — the same tech Intel is using to broadcast one MLB game every Tuesday.
- Intel CEO Brian Krzanich acknowledged the chicken and egg problem at the event, and said that VR from the Olympics should ensure a great supply of content.
- Intel stressed how the partnership would improve the experience for Olympic fans, citing another technology: Intel Free Tech.
- The advanced cellular network promises more than just speed: It will let viewers gain insights directly from athletes, deliver a wider array of content to broadcasters, and give fans the opportunity to experience the games anywhere, Intel said.
