FIFA said that another new feature for 2018 will allow fans to also follow the matches in virtual reality – both as a live experience and as 360° video-on-demand.
In terms of TV coverage, each match will be covered using 37 cameras – including eight with UHD/HDR and 1080p/SDR dual output, another eight with 1080p/HDR and 1080p/SDR dual output, eight super-slow-motion and two ultra-motion cameras.
“Thanks to a hybrid UHD/HDR/1080p setup multiple choice of video formats will be available (1080i, 1080p or UHD HDR) at the back of one single production chain,” said FIFA in a statement.
“The use of progressive scanning as a baseline production format and HDR will guarantee improved image quality for all Media Rights Licensees, regardless of their delivery format.”
