AE Graphics delivers successful World Cup studio for SuperSport in South Africa
AE Graphics has announced its South African team successfully delivered a comprehensive studio graphics solution for SuperSport for the World Cup in SuperSport’s custom built space in Johannesburg.
This solution included an array of augmented reality (AR) graphics, featuring 3D-modelled stadia, group tables and interactive maps of the host country, Russia, across multiple cameras using Stypegrip’s Red Spy tracking system.
Also at the World Cup, AE Graphics provided the graphics elements for the BBC’s eye-catching studio at Red Square in Moscow.
For SuperSport AE Graphics designed a touchscreen system, including a fully integrated analysis system that was controlled by pundits using a tablet device driving AR content on the studio floor, and imitating the touchscreen analysis graphics displayed on the large studio screen. The company stated this, “offered a truly immersive feel”.
Multi-language graphics in both English and Portuguese were also being provided, featuring full integration with the official FIFA data feed for live match and player statistics.
Commented Stuart Coles, chief commercial officer at AE Graphics: “One of our most eye catching graphics was the scrolling ticker that was a constant presence and enabled producers to keep viewers up to date with the very latest developments throughout the tournament.”
