Orad graphics helping to raise the bar for RFPL coverage
As the result of a collaboration between Orad and Liga-TV – a media rights management company and official broadcaster of the Russian Football Premier League (RFPL) – million of Russian football fans are now able to view extensive real-time full-screen and lower-third graphics documenting sophisticated football statistics.
The graphics are displayed live from the studio during the games themselves, as well as in pre- and post-match shows.
Ilya Gerkus, CEO of Liga-TV, comments: “We looked for a solution that would showcase our graphics and statistics, and bring Russian football production to the highest international level. Now, our spectators can enjoy lots of interesting facts presented in an exciting way. We are very happy with the result, and looking forward to working with our partners.”
Anton Maximovsky, CEO and president of Motion Path, adds: “The development of real-time graphics for sports is a complex task, both creatively and technically. We believe that we managed to push the traditional boundaries of real-time graphics by designing a package for RFPL that looks like high-end post-production material. Orad’s real-time platform and its sophisticated authoring tools provided us with a great degree of artistic freedom. As a result, RFPL received an aesthetically rich and sophisticated package with the ‘Nash Football’ brand being the core element. The end product featured a wealth of interesting data, communicated clearly with a dynamic and rich look.”
Eight times a week during each tour, the Russian Football Premier League broadcasts rely on Orad’s sports platforms and Motion Path’s graphic templates to display lineups that include clips of the players, yellow cards, team captains; comparison between groups according to defined criteria; player comparisons including “top three” in each category such as “best forward,” “goal keepers,” etc.; referee statistics, smart game calendar showing upcoming games dynamically, and more on its “Nash Football” channel. The clocks themselves also provide statistical information during the game, such as corners, who held the ball the most, substitutions, fouls and more.
