PinPoint Visualisations, the provider of realtime 3D visualisation, has purchased more Pixel Power broadcast graphics technology to enhance coverage of the US Open and forthcoming major golf championships including the Ryder Cup. Outside the golf arena the technology was recently deployed during the London Marathon and the Oxford – Cambridge Boat Race. PinPoint has purchased a LogoVision unit to use alongside its existing Clarity technology and Pixel Power Control Toolbox. Toolbox is a simple drag and drop development environment for creating custom data entry and control programmes to provide realtime control of Pixel Power playout devices. PinPoint’s systems provide the viewer with 3D visualisations of golf courses (and other sporting environments). This includes millimetre-accurate flyovers of hole and ball location and a player’s eye view. Predictions of the route of a putt are also available. Pixel Power uses the data points produced by PinPoint’s systems to provide precise onscreen graphics giving viewers information like distance from the pin and ball lie. James Gilbert, joint MD, Pixel Power (pictured), said, “Sports is such a demanding arena with coverage always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in order to enhance the viewer experience. Innovative technologies like PinPoint’s are therefore very important and we’re delighted to continue our relationship and work with them to extend their reach.” www.pixelpower.com
