Virtual 3D graphics and enhancements

Viz Arena is the perfect solution for visualizing the dynamics of a game; for reviewing critical referee decisions, for measuring athlete performances and to visually assist your viewers in focusing on the key action of a game. Viz Arena lets you superimpose any kind of virtual 3D graphics over the live coverage of every sporting event.

Image-based tracking

For select sports(*), Viz Arena incorporates an image-based camera tracking engine. Based on state-of-the-art image processing technology, Viz Arena can track cameras in real-time based on a clean video feed. This makes it possible to apply graphics to the field in the studio using only a single satellite feed (clean or dirty feed) without the need of mechanical tracking heads.

Data-driven graphics & instant replays

The flexibility of Viz Arena allows integration with any type of sports data provider, like Stats or Opta, for live player tracking or statistical data. Visualize the data tied-to-field or above-field and attach graphics to the appropriate player or position on the field. For superimposing graphics onto unknown terrains such as in golf, Viz Arena also integrates with laser measurement devices. Instant replay effects are achieved easily using the tight integration with EVS replay servers.

Advertisement control

Viz Arena allows you to place your sponsor logos manually on the field, or to have a permanent position during the complete game. This feature is very useful in a downstream workflow to insert virtual signage on or around the playing field with an automatic image-cut detection and an internal signal buffer for quality control.

For every sport

Viz Arena virtual graphics can be applied to every sport event and under any condition; from on flat soccer fields, to race courses and to uneven golf greens. The calibration process and the handling of the graphics will be identical. This guarantees a consistent workflow, easy setup, and minimal training for the operators. Viz Arena relies on a compact and mobile hardware solution.
