Field viewer and remote viewer experience synchronization.

Disclosed is a system, method, and program product that supports a field viewer and remote viewer synchronization while a remote viewer watches TV.

Some events, such as, football games may be watched by people in a stadium and others may watch the event remotely, such as, on a TV. A field or stadium viewer is

already in the stadium, so the attendee can view each and every action directly from the location. The field viewer can change their focus to look at any place on the field at any point of time. The remote viewer does not have the options available at the stadium, they can only view that which is being displayed on the TV. Figure 1 depicts users of mobile devices with various focus of attention. The concentration of the focus vary from point to point. Some areas have more viewer attraction and some points have less viewer attraction. The User's focus direction may be captured based on direction of head mounted displays and are extrapolated. Based on the aggregated focus direction, different point of attraction are identified. The identified points of attractions are aggregated and ranked based on how many people are focusing in that area. Eye tracking may be used to supplement the information on orientation of the glasses to improve reliability of identification of the area being viewed.
