In a joint effort Mediapro and wTVision designed and implemented a complete augmented reality solution, including virtual crowds and virtual infographics, for the most recent El Clásico (FB Barcelona vs. Real Madrid) live broadcast.
For this particular LaLiga event, virtual graphics with tactical line-ups and results were broadcast as a preview, before the beginning of the first and second half of the match. This was done thanks to the tracking integration with wTVision’s R³ Space Engine and the Omnicam4Sky aero cam.
As for the augmented reality graphics tied to the field, wTVision designed a solution integrating its FootballStats CG with VIZ Arena, Tracab and LaLiga´s Mediacoach. The combination allowed FootballStats CG to pass all of Tracab’s positional data (together with the Mediacoach data) to the VIZ graphics scenes in real time and generate powerful virtual graphics with real-time data, main statistics and players’ positions.
Like in every LaLiga match, El Clásico also had a virtual crowd solution developed by wTVision and Mediapro. This immersive virtual solution was generated with VIZ Arena, controlled with FootballStats CG and managed from Mediapro´s centralised production and distribution hub.
