Outdoor AR in the fast lane, Sky Germany tell the F1 story
Producing live sports remotely has become part of a broadcaster’s everyday repertoire. Doing so with cutting-edge Augmented Reality graphics is still a stretch goal for many. In recent Formula 1 and Deadline Day productions, Sky Germany have been leveraging XR Venue powered by Viz Arena to engage fans with live AR graphics. Their set-up has been completely streamlined, with a skeleton 2 person crew on site and everything else done from their Munich studio, all live and all without any delays.
Join this live session, where we will talk to Stefan Glatzl, Head of Sports Graphics | Sports Production and Alexander Kohl, Team Lead GFX Analysis Ops | VIZ Artist from Sky Germany about how they have evolved their sports graphics production and operation, and used the last two years to their advantage to successfully experiment with graphics tools. We will discuss their unique “mobile” use of Viz Arena, and show how they have full flexibility to place their AR graphics in any outdoor environment, all from a remote production facility. Then our experts will show how easy it is to use Viz Arena to add AR graphics in any sports production, anywhere in the field, stadium, track, court, stands or anywhere else where the excitement takes place. We will finish this session with live Q&A, where you can ask your questions to the Sky Germany team and our experts.
