Sports broadcasters – content producers, distributors and technologists – have never been faced with more challenges, nor, arguably, opportunities, than they are today.
Morphing consumption habits across the globe are leading to demand for all manner of content formats: full-length live action, of course, and with as many angles and overlays as possible, but also behind-the-scenes footage, short-form, athlete or fan-produced snippets, and the latest immersive tools that promise to bring the game to life or cast it in a different light.
At the same time, VR, AR, and 4K are technologies that seem tailor-made for sport, and there can be no better proving ground for them.
Improved workflow processes and efficient IP and cloud-based production and editing systems are helping broadcasters become more efficient, but the traditional broadcast revenue models are shifting too, and in many cases, more has to be done with less.
