We present a formalism how to calculate differential distributions for dilepton production in semicentral heavy ion collisions. In this new approach, the differential cross section is calculated using the complete polarization density matrix of photons resulting from the Wigner distribution formalism. The formalism is used to calculate different distributions of the invariant mass, dilepton transverse momentum and acoplanarity for different regions of centrality. The results of the calculation are compared with recent experimental data. We also study the contribution from different parts of impact parameter space.
