Developing Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence for best-quality and cost-effective live sports production and distribution

Project description

Live sports broadcasting gets augmented

Next time you watch a live sports event on TV, take a moment to consider what is going on behind the scenes. Not many realize that live sports production is complicated and expensive. In fact, It's one of the most technically challenging assignments for any production crew. The EU-funded OZeye project will provide the technology to make sports production less infrastructure demanding and less costly. The project aims to develop an automated system that includes software technologies to remotely control robotic cameras and allow unmanned production of football games. This new broadcasting platform is powered by augmented reality technology to recreate the atmosphere of a live football game realistically. What is more, contrary to the current situation, OZeye will give thousands of local football clubs in Europe the opportunity to have their matches produced and broadcasted; easily and affordably.
