Laver Cup global VR streaming with the highest video quality using YBVR tech
An outstanding immersive experience for tennis fans to enjoy Laver Cup in Virtual Reality.
The best VR video live experience will be broadcasted from the Laver Cup tournament: 8K at 60 frames per second video, with instant camera change from the user, who can choose any of the 12 camera positions at the tennis court.
The best tennis captured with two 360 degrees cameras close to the benches of the players and two 180 ones at the edges of the court, to follow your team like you were there in the front row or better.
Fans will be able also to enjoy tennis from the Director’s Chair, where they can select which view out of 8 cameras they want to enjoy at each moment, with the same choice capability that the Broadcast Director.
Laver Cup VR application will be available for Oculus Go (Oculus store) and HTC Vive Focus (Viveport store) from the beginning of the tournament. Highlights of the day, match points and featured immersive content will be available globally. Live matches will be watched from Europe.
The five live Laver Cup VR session times are as follows:
- Friday, September 20: 13:00, Match 1 (singles) f/b Match 2 (singles)

VR Highlights and more content will be available by 24h after the match and can be watched into the Laver Cup VR APP after the event. With 4 different camera feeds, fans will be able to change their viewing positions from each team bench to a spot behind each base line, a seat no money can buy.
This VR experience will provide fans with a unique look into what goes on away from the court. From players teaching each other new tricks to team chats, warms ups and games, a VR clip with 2x 4min features will be created (1-week after) that showcases the special nature of the Laver Cup environment from each team’s perspective.
The focus here is a look away from the action, into the fresh shift in mindsets of the players from individual to team. Where else can you see two of the greatest tennis players ever sit on the one team and discuss tactics?
