The San Francisco 49ers and Foxconn Industrial Internet (Fii) have completed a ground-breaking technological accomplishment with the installation of the world’s first-ever, full-field 8K video replay system. This achievement comes just over a year after the brands announced their multi-year partnership and plan to collaborate on 8K technologies that make Levi’s Stadium the first sports and entertainment venue with 8K video capabilities.
Since the aforementioned partnership announcement in September 2019, the 49ers and Fii have shared a congruent tech vision with 8K video capabilities that would keep Levi’s Stadium at the forefront of fan-centric innovation. That vision becomes a reality thanks to five 8K cameras, positioned inside the stadium to provide full-field coverage and clear views of all goal lines and side-lines, which utilise an incomparable digital zoom without pixilation.
