LaunchPad at Euro 2016
8 March 2016
Vizrt and Reality Check Systems (RCS) are providing a specialised version of LaunchPad for Euro 2016 and the Copa America.
The interactive solution is designed to facilitate plug-and-play full screen graphics and highlight analysis for studio programming around football competitions.
The technology, which fuses Opta data with dynamic RCS templates, as well as Viz Engine and Viz Libero, will be on display in 4K at NAB 2016.
LaunchPad enables integration of full screen graphics directly into broadcasts via switcher or on-set via a touchscreen controlled by talent.
Using the solution, graphics for Euro 2016 and Copa America including results, standings, fixtures, touch, pass and shot maps, as well as player and team profiles are instantly available on-air.
“Data and analytics have become standard for programming surrounding major sporting events, and this version of LaunchPad gives broadcasters a flexible solution to engage Euro 2016 and Copa America viewers with real-time tournament graphics and in-depth data,” said Jeff Heimbold, VP of business development, RCS.
“By collaborating with partners like Vizrt and Opta Sports, we’ve created an affordable solution for both data-driven graphics and interactive analysis, allowing broadcasters to bypass traditional integration pains and costly infrastructure investments.”
