“What people need to remember is that no matter what the technology is, there is a person at the receiving end,” Todd Richmond, director of advanced prototypes at the University of Southern California and IEEE fellow, tells Inverse. “So it’s really about a person’s relationship with the devices.”
That relationship will be shaped by immersive viewing technology, Richmond says. It’s not just virtual reality, which is limited by the number of devices, and online streaming, which opens doors to a wider number of sports but doesn’t offer many other advantages. Expect to see a complete revamp in the viewing experience for 2020 and beyond.
