Epic Games has published an 80-page ‘Field Guide’ for producers who want to adopt real-time video-game technologies for broadcast and live events.

The guide offers insight on the opportunity, challenges, and future of real-time in broadcast
and live events, as well as practical guidance on establishing pipelines and workflows, rethinking team hierarchies and skill sets, and best practices for the craft.
The Guide contains tips and input from companies such as Creative Works London, Disguise, Illuminarium, Moment Factory, Myreze, The Carolina Panthers, The Weather Channel and XR Studios, showcasing real-time workflows for live sporting events, concerts, news, AR-enhanced broadcasts.
“Throughout, we’ve also spotlighted many of the best and most impactful real-time broadcast and live events projects, sharing interviews with the teams and individuals behind them,” says the Guide.
