Encourage team from home? Yamaha saves the atmosphere of the games behind closed doors

With the déconfinement progressive in the different countries comes the resumption of sporting competitions and the return of the players or professional athletes in the stadiums. But these must most often occur in front of the stands empty because of camera imposed, not taking advantage, therefore, not encouragement of their supporters.

To remedy this, the japanese company Yamaha has designed a system that allows viewers to send their applause - and their whistling - to their team, through a mobile application. They are then streamed into the stadium through the loudspeakers installed in the platforms.

To do this, the fans do not have to give them voice. They will simply have to select the shout of their choice from a list pre-recorded in the application. The more they are likely to do, the more they will sound loud in the stadium. Fans will also be able to choose from what forum their encouragement will be issued, so that each team can know if they are being addressed.

A growing market

"the screams of The fans are an essential element of the atmosphere of the matches. The players need the encouragement," explains in a press release Junpei Takaki, a leader of the club japanese Shimizu S-Pulse, who has tested the application.

The ability of interaction with the audience is a crucial element of the dematerialization of sports and cultural events, a required passage until the end of the epidemic of Covid-19. In Paris, the Apollo Theatre broadcasts performances via streaming, and allowing the performers to see the reaction of the public on screens installed in the room.

More broadly, devices that allow to enrich the simple retransmission of a video stream, such as virtual reality, have experienced a resurgence of interest in recent months. Apple has made the acquisition of NextVR, a company specializing in concerts and sporting events. The CEO of Sony Kenichiro Yoshida told the Financial Times that he expected an increased demand for concerts and games without in-person hearing in the future.
