EuroLeague fans will have the chance to experience the most thrilling momentum of the season from a first-person perspective as the referees officiating the two semifinals and the championship game at the 2023 Final Four in Kaunas will do so while wearing revolutionary MindFly AI ultralight-powered bodycams during the action.

The semifinals, which will be played on May 19, will mark the first time that MindFly technology will be deployed in a Turkish Airlines EuroLeague game, with the bodycams poised to capture an immersive experience that provides both video and audio feeds, replicating the closest experience that anyone can have on the court.

All fans will have the possibility to experience the immersive content that will be created with this revolutionary technology with the special clips that will be created and published on EuroLeague Basketball’s official web and social media platforms.

Eran Tal, CEO and co-founder of MindFly, said, “The videos we produce for EuroLeague events should generate immense interest among basketball enthusiasts. Our technology enhances the experience for passionate viewers and fans who want to follow every possible angle of all the action on the court, especially during decisive game-changing moments.”
