AE Live provides its graphics solution to The Hundred cricket competition
AE Live is delivering remotely its graphic solution to The Hundred, run by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). They are operating from its newly built graphics suites based at the AE Live Campus. The pods, as the company has named them, are remotely connected to the Sky Sports’ studios in Osterley where Sky Sports’ main production crew will be located. The pods are fully equipped with monitoring, including live camera feeds from venues, and connected talkback with the entire production crew.
From there, AE operators deliver match and presentation graphics for Sky Sports’ coverage, including the inaugural event and the broadcast of the eight match venues. AE Scorer and AE Operator, together with Sky operators, will offer a series of data-driven augmented reality content.
“It’s been very rewarding to work so closely and collaboratively with the Sky technical teams to achieve the new architecture and workflows required to deliver such an exciting summer of cricket”, has commented Dave Gill, Chief Technology Officer at AE. Afterwards, he said “We know the future is remote but there is no one-size-fits-all model, so we have designed these pods, as well as the supporting infrastructure, to be as flexible as possible and able to support a range of different remote workflow models”.
