Showmax will this Sunday introduce a multicam-feed viewing experience for football fans who will be watching the highly-anticipated El Clasico (Barcelona vs Real Madrid). With this feed, users will be able to view the game from multiple angles while also getting the games stats and info.
The on-demand entertainment service provider calls this the ultimate viewing experience and says it is the first of of its kind in the African space. The Multicam feed will give users a range of options to customise their way of watching football.
These will be the different feeds Showmax users will be able to access:
- Main screen: This screen includes a special form of superfeed that highlights the main special cameras included in the broadcast. The base feed will be the view from the master camera, complemented by views from the rest of the cameras, drone shots, graphics and live stats.
- Following the ball: Aerial camera combined with detailed shots. These cameras are always focused on the ball and the player in possession, providing a closer image to follow the player’s actions in detail.
- Around the goal area: This window shows all the action around the goal area where viewers see the very best shots from every attack on goal as well as highlights of each and every intervention from the keepers.
- Camera on the bench: This feed alternates between shots of the home and visitors’ benches. The viewer will be able to follow the coaches’ instructions, reactions to key moments in the match and also keep a close eye on the subs.
- Stats window: The four-image feed leaves space at the bottom of the screen for a layer of dynamic graphics and visuals featuring stats from the match.
The standard live stream will also be available.
“We are proud to be the first online streaming service in Africa to introduce the multicam feed for such a highly anticipated game. Fans are constantly looking for ways to enhance their viewing experience and with this cutting-edge technology, viewers can watch football in style, like Pros,” said Barry Dubovsky, Chief Operating Officer for Showmax.
