Soccer in 360 degree

The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute cooperates with Telekom Deutschland GmbH to produce video content in high resolution for 360 degree and VR applications at this year’s Telekom Cup. Therefore, the soccer event will be recorded with the OmniCam-360 of Fraunhofer HHI.

With the help of Fraunhofer HHI’s OmniCam-360, panorama recordings can be made for immersive applications. The OmniCam-360 is equipped with ten micro-HD cameras and records an UHD panorama video with a maximum resolution of 10K x 2K pixels. The flexible system is therefore suitable for a wide variety of 360 degree panorama productions.

On July 15, 2017, the ninth Telekom Cup will take place at the Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach, Germany. On board are host Borussia Mönchengladbach, FC Bayern München, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim und SV Werder Bremen.
