Fans demand more now than ever before. Offer them a standard or below-par viewing experience, and they simply won’t return. Our advanced OTT player, DIVA, has been designed to put the fan at the heart of the action – and its multi-angle camera feature is just one way to ensure your service is miles ahead of the rest!

So, how can DIVA solve three common fan ‘problems’ that get in the way of a A* viewing experience? Read on...

Issue

Your fans are all unique and have different needs, passions, and interests. As a traditional broadcast approach offers everyone the same viewing experience, how can you ensure everyone’s demands are met?

Solution

With DIVA, the fan can become their own director! DIVA’s multi-angle camera ingests broadcast feeds from several cameras into the player, meaning the platform allows the user to select their preferred angle to watch the game.

Say one fan wants to see how Neymar is exploiting areas of space in the attacking third, they can get up and close to the action by controlling their own viewing experience and perspective. If another prefers a more birds-eye view of play, they can simply select the spider cam angle. It means they’re no longer passive viewers, the fan can have the autonomy to shape their own experience as the event unfolds.

Issue

What if your fans look away from their screen and miss a key part of play (think red card, goal, etc.)? In a live environment, ‘rewinding’ isn’t the best option, so trying to rewatch isn’t exactly a simple experience.

Solution

Thankfully, all this rich content available with DIVA’s multi-angle camera isn’t ‘lost’ as soon as the moment is over. If fans want to rewatch a key moment of play, DIVA’s interactive timeline functionality is their savior. All they need to do is jump back and forth between live action and watch the moment from as many angles as they like. Plus, they can either digest them at that moment or relive the game!

Issue

Your fans don’t want to miss a moment, but dare we say it, the linear viewing experience just isn’t offering them enough. They want to really analyze the action and offer their own insights around the state of play.

Solution

With DIVA, fans can not only view the action from multiple angles, they can also enjoy a data-enriched experience to help them really get under the skin of what’s happening. While watching the game from different perspectives, they can also consume ultra-slow-motion replays, augmented reality 4K (or even 8K) graphics, and advanced statistical overlays on every angle. With DIVA, they can really unpick what’s happening before them in more detail than ever before.

Next up, we’ll explain some of the issues that DIVA’s interactive timeline can solve! Watch this space...
