Having already been tested during last phase of the basketball World Cup, FIBA has launched a second-screen app powered by Intellicore and EVS.
evslogoCurrently only available for iOS mobile devices, the second-screen app allows fans to select action replays from each game and watch them repeatedly from different camera angles which they can choose.
The FIBA Replay app paves the way for further developments at future FIBA events from 2015 onwards.
"We are delighted to work with EVS's world-class sports technology to deliver this solution for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup," said Christian Trotobas, CEO of Intellicore. "It took us less than four weeks to launch the live service which will be a state-of-the-art replay experience for basketball fans everywhere."
"Thanks to the seamless integration of our cloud-based multimedia distribution platform and the FIBA Replay App design by Intellicore, the fan experience will be transformed," added Joop Jansen, CEO of EVS. "Key action can now be viewed and replayed on mobile devices from multiple camera angles as the action unfolds on the court."
