deltatre and Vizrt expanding partnership for Magma Pro Football solution

Magma Pro Football

Italy based sports media and technology company deltatre and Vizrt broaden their partnership with Magma Pro powered by Viz Libero for the upcoming Football World Championship. Magma Pro powered by Viz Libero extends deltatre’s Magma product offering typically used for TV graphics and tournament statistics (including tracking data) with the virtual graphic capabilities and 3D camera flights offered by Viz Libero.

Viz Libero, Vizrt’s 3D sports analysis tool, accesses the Magma database to attach and display deltatre statistics to a player within the Viz Libero analysis, either by applying tied-to-pitch graphics such as heat maps, or with player pointers to tag the players on the field. The integration of Magma’s player tracking data allows for very-fast turnaround analysis clip preparation, as well as direct and easy interactive analysis by the studio expert. In addition, Magma Pro powered by Viz Libero enables a very smooth and fast workflow for accessing the game events and video footage stored in Magma within Viz Libero.

deltatre has been using Vizrt broadcast graphics products since 2004. Earlier this year they added several new Vizrt products to their production setup. Viz Trio, Vizrt’s character generator (CG), is being used extensively for live production of all real-time graphics, including lower thirds, match-ups, and score boards. Viz Virtual Studio creates augmented reality graphics on set, providing presenters with a new way of highlighting key players and match-ups.

Jim Irving, Commercial Director at deltatre, said, “We have a successful track record of integrating Vizrt products into innovative solutions for deltatre’s clients. Therefore, it’s fitting that the culmination of this relationship, Magma Pro powered by Viz Libero, will be used prominently during the biggest sporting event of 2014.”

“This solution will make anyone’s coverage of the World Cup really shine,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, Vizrt CTO. “The mix of deltatre’s high-quality sports event data and production with our Viz Libero produces a system that gives viewers unparalleled insight into what is happening on the pitch. I can’t wait to see it live during the tournament.”

Magma Pro powered by Viz Libero will be unveiled for the first time this December in Rio de Janeiro in preparations for the upcoming Football World Championship. More information about the solution can be found at http://magma.deltatre.com and on www.vizrt.com.
