【SPORTS VIEWING RE-IMAGINED】Kirari! technology for real-time surround video synthesis
A high-definition and ultra-wide video with quality exceeding 8K will be produced using surround video synthesis technology, which integrates videos from 4K cameras seamlessly in real time.
【SPORTS VIEWING RE-IMAGINED】Swarm operation and communication control technology
Viewing sporting events using a swarm of groundbots. Being able to view an event in the entire space is achieved by running a swarm of groundbots – robots on rollers equipped with a display - and controlling the captured videos in real time.
【SPORTS VIEWING RE-IMAGINED】Kirari! technology for highly realistic sound localization
By utilizing wavefront synthesis technology, the sounds of players and balls being struck can be heard in a game of goalball. Using this technology, which can produce an acoustic field anywhere in a space, we re-produce the acoustic space of a game of goalball.
