Lecture Abstract:

The freeD (free dimensional video) Volumetric Video format had been successfully used and leveraged to enhance sports consumption as we know it. We shall discuss the technology, how does it work, and what does it mean to embed and introduce a novel disruptive technology into an existing eco-system of sports. We shall look at the various transformations from raw-technology into working products, and how those were introduced successfully for usage in the commercial sports world.
