The intensive synchrotron radiation resulting from quarks interacting with the collective confining color field in heavy ion collisions is discussed. The spectrum of hard photons is presented and is compared with the experimental data showing a feasibility of this magnetic bremsstrahlung-like radiation. A study of the earlier predicted specific anisotropy in the angle distribution of dileptons with respect to the three-momentum of the pair is suggested as a way to select this mechanism among other sources of direct photons and dileptons and to probe the confinement properties.
