Get ready for “advanced 5G viewing experiences” for fans of Mexican Premier League soccer.
A multi-year partnership has been reached between Verizon and Univision Communications. It sees Univision exclusively launch the TUDN Vision content portal experience on Verizon devices. This gives fans digital access to the stadiums where games are held, with 360 camera views. It is designed to bring fans closer to the action.
Verizon will also work with Univision to virtualize and enhance production processes over 5G, and partner with Univision on an Enhanced Data Analytics feature.
“TUDN Vision is a 360 portal experience that provides fans the opportunity to experience exclusive, interactive content from Liga MX games,” Univision says. TUDN Vision will be available in the TUDN mobile app or web browser in the United States; Mexico license agreements prohibit use of the app within the country.
TUDN Vision gets its official launch on Saturday (4/17), during the Cruz Azul vs. América match.
Verizon also plans to work closely with Univision to virtualize and enhance broadcast production processes over 5G Ultra Wideband for the U.S Friendlies this fall, pending U.S. Covid-19 restrictions. Games will take place in Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband-enabled stadiums, where Univision’s production teams will be enabled to execute an end-to-end production process over Verizon 5G. Verizon and Univision will also continue to develop new immersive experiences for fans at the stadium.
Further, Verizon will partner with Univision’s TUDN on an Enhanced Analytics feature. This technology will leverage proprietary cameras in stadiums to capture data analytics metrics and superimpose AR overlays to enhance the fan viewing experience in linear feeds, leveraging technology from Chyron and Tracab. This feature will enable in-game custom features, such as replaying the most exciting plays of the game. It will also feature in-studio segments hosted from a custom set in “Contacto Deportivo” and “Mision Europa,” covering the best plays of the game, leveraging unique graphics and AR packages.
