SportTech Europe in Dublin May 18: Let’s talk about Graphics

SVG Europe’s SportTech event at The Aviva Stadium Wednesday May 18 will feature two major graphics-focused sessions, Best Practice in Live Event Graphics 2016 (sponsored by Vizrt) and Virtual Graphics, Player Tracking and Power of Big Data (sponsored by ChryonHego. It’s our first time in Dublin and our first graphics-themed SVG Europe event.

Best Practice in Live Event Graphics 2016 will be moderated by Ken Kerschbaumer, SVG Executive Director, Editorial Services and his panellists are Daragh Bass, BT Sport, Innovation Producer; Neale Connell, Alston Elliot, Chief Commercial Officer; John Murphy, BBC Sport, Design Director; and Mike Ward, Reality Check Systems, Managing Director, EMEA. Graphics have never played a more integral role in the production of live sports broadcasts. Networks are increasingly looking to incorporate new technologies, such as player tracking and virtual insertion, into their live production workflow. This session examines how producers can identify new technologies that warrant investment, and the impending impact of 4K on operations.

The moderator for Virtual Graphics, Player Tracking and Power of Big Data will be David Davies, SVG Europe Managing Editor. Joining him on stage will be David Eccles, ChyronHego, Account Manager – Sports; Olivier Emery, Trimaran, Co-Founder; Kjetil Horneland, Sixty, Chief Executive Officer; Vincent Noyer, Ericsson, Piero Business Unit, Acting Head; and Tony Page, deltatre, Head of Onstage (Graphics and Data Services).

Player tracking graphics and virtual on-field elements have become commonplace in major sports broadcasts and are seeing increased use on smaller shows as well. Meanwhile, the rapidly evolving market for virtual 360-degree replay and augmented reality systems continues to grow for both live sports broadcasts and studio shows alike – while systems continue to evolve to help integrate existing broadcast graphics with interactive on-air and online graphics for tablets and other smart devices. Get an inside look at how these technologies are changing the way fans view the game.
