Realistic 3D replays

Viz Libero combines realistic 3D replays and advanced virtual graphics for a sports broadcast, giving TV viewers insight into controversial or tactically interesting sports situations. Viz Libero generates realistic virtual camera images. It does not require any additional infrastructure in the stadium, making it suitable not only for hassle-free remote productions but also fully-featured studio applications. An interactive telestration and annotation system combines the full flexibility of Viz Libero’s 3D scenes with an interactive user interface for TV experts.

Content sponsoring

Embedding virtual advertisements into the generated content provides an excellent opportunity for your commercial partners to place their brand together with the 3D flights. Content sponsoring allows for the placement of tied-to-pitch advertising banners in a perspectively correct and unobtrusive way.

 

Integration with Viz Engine and Viz Artist

Viz Libero is tightly integrated with Viz Engine, Vizrt’s real-time 3D compositing engine, to create eye-catching telestration graphics and animations while giving the operator real-time preview and playout. The integration allows designers to create customized Vizrt’s modeling and animation tool.

Branded graphics

Design your own customized graphics and animations with Viz Artist, making the Viz Libero graphics appear even more advanced and with your own look and feel.

Automatic Player Tracking

Viz Libero’s Automatic Player Tracking is the first of its kind to automatically track players on the pitch and accurately show their movement without needing any special cameras installed at the stadium. A user simply clicks on one or more players and Viz Libero will automatically track the players and correct itself if the view of a player becomes obstructed at any point. This capability removes the need for keyframing players in post production, meaning the graphics are ready to use seconds. The player tracking can even be carried out from a broadcaster’s own studio, using Viz Libero and a direct satellite feed from the venue.

Virtual Presenter

Place your talent on the field in a sports analysis clip. Viz Libero’s integration with Viz Engine allows your talent to be part of the 3D analysis and explain the game and tactics virtually, walking on the field amongst the players.

Viz Libero for coaching

Viz Libero helps coaches illustrate complex messages quickly to players.  All that’s required to run Viz Libero for coaching purposes is a standard laptop equipped with a good graphics card. Footage is imported and is then ready for analysis. Content can then either be played out onto a screen, or clips can be exported and sent to players to watch individually. Several features are invaluable to a coaching team including realistic 3D replays, new perspectives from different angles, distance measurements, player moves, and automatic tracking of multiple players.
