Sports in 4D: 4DReplay Video Technology Shows 360-Degree Immersive Views to Sports Fans
TOKYO, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology that, within five seconds of a point-scoring play in a tournament, will show on a television screen a 360-degree replay highlight video. For the viewer, the highlight video is just as immersive as the original footage, because it can be seen from multiple angles. The technology is 4DReplay, a real-time replay video system that is popular among sports fans worldwide. 4DReplay's ability to show not only the exact moment that a point was scored, but even the sweat on the athlete's face and broadcasting of games/tournaments from many different angles. Sports in 4DReplay technologies 4DReplay, a technology developed by 4DREPLAY, a member of Born2Global Centre, a Silicon Valley-based global media technology startup, can capture and replay key moments. For example, a 360-degree rotating view from sporting events. The principle is simple: 50 to120 special cameras that are installed at the stadium or venue, filmed in real-time, detail videos of an athletes' every move. Then these events, without rendering, are immediately edited at the stadium's operating console and played during the live broadcast. It is due to its ability to render exciting moments from tournaments or matches that spectators want to see again and again which creates an "even more real" experience than the original live footage. 4DReplay is currently used for diverse sporting events, such as the broadcast of a San Francisco Giants game (MLB) in 2017. 4DReplay is also used today in live broadcasts of global competitions, including the NBA, NHL, PGA, LPGA, Australian Open, and UFC. Of note, 4DReplay will be used starting on July 23, at the world's largest sporting event, which is held this year in Tokyo. 4DReplay, which has been installed at 11 stadiums, will be used to film approximately 50 sporting events and is expected to produce many dramatic videos, including the opening ceremony at Japan National Stadium. Exciting performances by athletes for such sports as athletics, artistic gymnastics track, golf, volleyball, 3X3 basketball, sport climbing, skateboarding, BMX racing, Taekwondo, wrestling, and Judo. For Taekwondo and wrestling, 4DVar, an official game judging system, will be used. For Judo, the video solution 4DLive will be used as a means of supplementing the sportscaster's commentary. Hongsu Jung, CEO of 4DREPLAY, said, "The prolonging of COVID-19 and the resulting consistent hosting of sporting events without on-site spectators is making viewers even more nostalgic for the feeling of watching a game offline in person. The broadcasting company personnel who are responsible for streaming the world's biggest sporting event have the added responsibility of conveying the atmosphere on-site to fans watching from home so that fans feel like they are physically present. 4DReplay features each athlete's performance in a 360-degree view, which allows us to show every movement made by the world's top athletes—the outcome of years of sweat and tears—in a high degree of detail that we believe will impress viewers. For team events, performances will be shown for different angles per team. Our videos will help viewers to better understand a particular sport through their multi-angle portrayal of athletes' momentary decisions and performance."

LONGi is also at the forefront of wind tunnel testing to validate the design of its modules, which are subjected to a maximum wind speed of 60m/s, equivalent to a 17 magnitude hurricane. In hail test, LONGi goes as far as enlarging the size of hailstones to more than 35mm to ensure that a module is capable of resisting catastrophic weather. Reliable material introduction: stringent testing conducted to select the best In terms of management standards, LONGi applies the most stringent criteria to BOM, reliability monitoring and the material introduction process. For raw materials such as glass, ribbon, EVA, backsheets, frames and junction boxes, etc., only those suppliers meeting the LONGi BOM standards can be considered. Only those that pass this rigorous testing process can be introduced into mass production. In this way, LONGi has referred to industrial criteria of 824 items, taking the reliability of LONGi's standard BOM to a new level. On the basis of superior product design and material introduction, LONGi was awarded 'High Achiever' status by RETC for the third consecutive year for its thresher testing of products (i.e. three times the IEC standard) and receive top marks in all nine categories. It was also rated as a 'Top Performer' by PVEL for the fifth consecutive year, achieve this ranking in all six available categories. The extreme nature of product and material testing is in order to achieve the highest standards of reliability. Selection of reliable materials is the cornerstone of module quality for PV manufacturers and, going forward, LONGi commits to there being no compromises on materials or quality standards in order to increase power or reduce costs. Reliable manufacturing: comprehensive quality control ensuring lean manufacturing Quality control systems, including ISO9001, ISO45001, ISO14000 and IEC TS 62941, are observed to comprehensively control LONGi's manufacturing quality. The company has also established a comprehensive quality control system covering raw material control, manufacturing process and end-product reliability monitoring. Specifically, LONGi has introduced several advanced digital management platforms that are present throughout the whole quality control process, making the implementation and traceability of management standards more efficient and transparent. With LONGi module factories being based around the world, the process has allowed consistent control of materials, quality and testing standards to ensure that all modules are manufactured to the same standard and quality, regardless of location. In LONGi's automated and intelligent workshops, by delicacy management, there are 22 manufacturing procedures, 153 items under quality inspection to ensure standardization of the production process, ensuring that every module produced by the company is of the same excellent quality. LONGi conducts comprehensive annual, quarterly and monthly product performance monitoring. For example, a high-frequency monitoring approach is applied for monthly tests, such as PID, LID and LETID, covering all product models and each set of BOM. Hail test, salt mist, fire protection, etc., LONGi being the first company to integrate these elements into mass production monitoring. To protect the rights and interests of its customers, LONGi adopts digital methods to handle the anti-counterfeiting validation of each module and has also set up post-sales services.
