For producing the international football match between Germany and Brazil, German public broadcaster ZDF as a first timer in football used new possibilities for image composition leveraging the Robycam cable camera system and augmented reality elements. During the friendly, which took place on March 27 at Berlin Olympic Stadium, ZDF used the Robycam cable camera system along with a Broadcast Solutions production team. Together with augmented reality elements, implemented by the graphics service provider netventure production GmbH, new graphic elements could be inserted during the camera’s movement in the stadium. The Robycam signals, including the actual location data in the stadium, and the virtual graphics of netventure were mapped in the computer and then sent. Using these new innovative tools, ZDF was able to offer its viewers additional content and information, even while moving the cable camera system in the stadium.
