Intel Acquires Voke VR to Immerse you in VR Sports
Intel has acquired VOKE VR, a startup in immersive sports video experiences that counted the Sacramento Kings among its investors.
The core of VOKE’s business is a product it markets as TrueVR, which is based around a special stereoscopic camera that is used to record experiences, as well as software to then deliver it to various devices.
Becoming Part of Intel Sports Group
“VOKE’s technology lets fans be where the action is without ever leaving their living rooms,” said James Carwana, General Manager of the Intel Sports Group, in a statement. Notably, the VR experiences can be delivered live, which opens up an interesting market for how VR could be used in a number of real-time, mass market use cases.
The new Intel Sports division will also include its freeD technology team, which joined Intel when the company acquired Replay Technologies earlier this year. “We’re making great progress bringing innovative technology and amazing experiences to the world of sports, but there’s more to come,” Carwana notes.
