At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, AE Live delivered a multi award winning studio for BBC Sport in Moscow. The studio that looked over the iconic Red Square had two LED screens that acted as virtual windows, depicting various Russian landmarks that moved in perspective with the camera.
As well as delivering augmented reality graphics next to presenters, our studio solution included a virtual wall that masked cameramen and equipment to give a 360 degree immersive feel. Within this virtual area we delivered a live feed window from match venues and a range of AR graphics.
We pride ourselves on being on the forefront of new technology to help our clients deliver unique experiences for their audiences. Our virtual studio team are utilising the exciting power of gaming engines to create photo realistic environments that enable us to deliver fully 360-degree virtual studios.
The BBC Sport VR studio uses data driven graphics built in Zero Density which enables us to merge data-rich AR graphics into the virtual environment. This is achieved using AE’s own control application, which facilitates the use of real-time data driven graphics in a Zero Density workflow.
The solution included development of design production tools, blueprints and procedures to enable easy creation, integration and data population of graphics templates in Unreal Engine/Zero Density reality.
Our investment in R&D and our focus on innovation has seen us deliver a number of ground-breaking solutions for our clients including pundit-driven augmented reality graphics driven by tablet devices and interactive touchscreens used for in-depth analysis.
