Intel took another step into what CEO Brian Krzanich has called the digitization of sports with the purchase of Israeli 3D video technology firm Replay Technologies on Wednesday.

Intel has been focusing on finding new technologies that make use of its chips and has been working with Tel Aviv-based Replay since 2013.  At an NBA All-Star weekend in February, Intel used Replay’s “free dimensional” or freeD video on TV and online.

This system allowed broadcasters to give fans a 360-degree view of key plays,”.
