Raymond James Stadium will soon feature an Intel True View replay system, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are planning to complete installation during the season.
The Intel True View replay system will utilize 38 5K ultra-high definition cameras, positioned throughout Raymond James Stadium. The system allows for an immersive 360-degree reconstruction of plays, giving spectators at Raymond James Stadium an opportunity to see plays from every angle. Installation has not been completed yet, but the Buccaneers are hoping to have the system up and running by November, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
An Intel True View replay system is not the only change coming to Raymond James Stadium this season, as the Buccaneers are also debuting revamped food offerings and new team gear featuring a Nike Concept Store at the Bucs Team Store, which is now managed by Fanatics.

Through these partnerships, we are providing the finest products and service to our fans. We are also proud to welcome superstar Tim McGraw this Sunday to provide our guests a great show before we officially kick off this special 100th season of NFL football against the 49ers.”
