Vizrt XR - ITV Sport - Estudio

The Vizrt XR graphics solution has been used by ITV Sport in collaboration with AE Live to expand the capabilities of its Euro 2020 coverage.

AE Live has joined forces with ITV Sport to create a set of augmented reality graphics that can be integrated into both the British broadcaster’s real studio and virtual environments. The graphics, which include player profiles, group table, banners of various countries and tactical elements, are rendered with Vizrt’s Viz Engine and controlled with the Vizrt XR solution.

One of the main objectives has been to design a flexible and simple workflow, in order to customize the broadcasts when needed. Paul McNamara, Senior Director and Executive Producer at ITV, says: “The AR graphics added greatly to the studio, providing us with complete editorial flexibility at all times.”
