Ross Video’s innovative sports graphics solution PIERO will help MagentaTV’s pundits analyse all 51 matches during Euro 2020.
The solution is being used by PLAZAMEDIA GmbH, which has been commissioned by Deutsche Telekom to host MagentaTV’s EURO 2020 studios and oversee the production of all matches on four channels in 4K UHD and HD.
PIERO uses image recognition or encoded camera heads to overlay tactical graphics on sports content.
“With its range of visually engaging and informative effects, PIERO helps experts and pundits crack open the key moments in any game, giving audiences valuable insight into the decisions, tactics and actions that win or lose the match,” said Vincent Noyer, director of sports graphics analysis at Ross.
“MagentaTV’s coverage will be incredibly extensive and their slogan for this tournament is ‘More EURO Isn’t Possible!’” says Hardy Steinweg, COO at PLAZAMEDIA. “We’ll be bringing audiences the most innovative and engaging programmes, and PIERO will be a very important part of the recipe. It’s a powerful and visually compelling tool that really helps tell the story of a match and gives our experts new ways to get under the skin of the action.”
