NTT has teamed up with the Taoyuan City Government and the Rakuten Monkeys on 9 October, to showcase an immersive and interactive game service in Taoyuan City, Taiwan. Leveraging NTT’s ultra reality viewing technology, audiences at the Taimall Shopping Center Plaza were able to watch the live game at the Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium, as if they were sitting inside the stadium, NTT said.

Back in October, NTT conducted the first ultra reality viewing game experience in the US2. NTT has installed equipment for shooting and video processing at the Taoyuan Stadium to transmit HD images (12K wide) from the game scene to an ultra-wide screen at the remote site in real-time. The ultra-wide screen together with surrounding sound system are designed to create a sensation that the remote viewers are watching the game from the seats of the Taoyuan Stadium, NTT said. 

With support from Industrial Development Bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), NTT in Taiwan is now developing a new interactive mobile application for the Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium. With the mobile application, fans can buy tickets, order food and beverages, check game schedules or scores and play interactive games all on their mobile phones. Future updates for the application will include promotion of local travel, accommodation, food and transportation among others.
