NBA virtual audience matches with Microsoft Teams: First digital video

With the COVID-19 outbreak, no fans are allowed in the stadium to watch NBA matches. Hence, the NBA has partnered with Microsoft to create a virtual, socially-distanced match experience for fans starting July 30. Microsoft will bring about 300 people to watch the NBA game through Microsoft Team’s together mode. Hence, there will be no empty stadium or cardboard fans to creep out the NBA viewers. Moreover, there will three massive 17-feet tall LED screens on three sides of the basketball stadium. The audience would be visible from these screens. LA Times reporter Tania Ganguli posted a brief video depicting the experience in real life.

Earlier this month, Microsoft launched its together mode on Microsoft teams to improve video meetings. Teams use AI segmentation technology to place people in a shared background. Hence, it will feel like everyone is sitting in the same room while working from home. With the NBA game in progress, 300 people will be present in virtual seats on the LED screens. Since this feature focus on people’s face and body language, it will give people the illusion of being together in the stands. They will be able to cheer for their favorite teams collectively.
