World’s first 6k quality 360º VR multi-channel live stream

Iconic Engine powered a live 360 stream of a Telekom Baskets game.

On the 9th of December 2019, a Telekom Baskets game against EWE Oldenburg Baskets was broadcast for the first time in the Magenta VR app – live from the Telekom Dome in Bonn, in high-quality 360-degrees video. The live stream was available for free to Magenta VR users. The online VR distribution of this basketball game allowed sports and basketball fans to be present up close via the App.

With the Magenta VR App, you can cheer with the teams in 360 degree VR directly from the sidelines. Deutsche Telekom used Iconic Engine's innovative technology for the live stream alongside partners including TiledMedia and their Tiled-Based Stream, which transmits the video in the user’s direct field of view in HD resolution. With a VR headset live streaming users feel even more present in the stadium, live, while the game unfolds.
