Virtualizing BBC Sport's Olympics
Coverage: Moov & Brainstorm
or the Tokyo Olympics coverage,
MOOV delivered a ground-breaking
Virtual Graphics Production for BBC
Sport. Although the initial idea was to
do a virtual production from the IBC
in Tokyo, as the pandemic struck, with
doubts on the games even happening,
and later on the travel and attendance
restrictions, the BBC redirected the
presentation back to UK, to Dock 10
Studios in Media City, Salford.
MOOV built the multi-layered virtual
studio design proposed by Toby
Kalitowski (BK Design Projects) and Jim
Mann (Lightwell). The company also
did all the keying, masking, tracking,
graphics, and production control
required to create a virtual 360 city to
surround the studio, which also had to
run in real-time, all the time.
The set
F
held
graphics,
Olympic
branding, and video imagery, and
being a 24/7 live production, the
studio, and everything in the scene,
and had to work for day, dusk and
night setups, which were switched at
the click of a button.
A total of 5 cameras were used in the
production which consisted of a rail
camera, a jib camera and 3 pedestal
cameras, with Mo-sys StarTracker
on each camera to provide with
tracking data that would feed into
the 5 Brainstorm render engines, one
for each camera. The Virtual Studio
solution was powered by Brainstorm's
InfinitySet and complemented by Epic
Games' Unreal Engine. InfinitySet
enabled MOOV to control all the
incoming video and tracking feeds,
apply garbage and dynamic masks
to the scene, and add functionality
through a web interface so that
operators simply had to click buttons
to change the scene or animate a
screen.
MOOV took advantage of the
latest InfinitySet developments,
such as Layers, with which the final
composition of background (Unreal)
and foreground (Camera) was done
internally in InfinitySet. Also, all the
external feeds were controlled by
InfinitySet and then transferred to
Unreal Engine. On top of that, MOOV
prepared
a
custom
GUI
designed
internally in InfinitySet and controlled
through a WebApp. The layout for the
operator was tailor made exposing not
just the regular editors in InfinitySet
but also any parameter in Unreal as
defined with the Brainstorm Unreal
Control application.
The production was effectively onair
24/7 across the Olympics, with
just little gaps in the late evening
for just a couple of hours, and, most
importantly, the technology really
stood up to it, without any fall outs,
which is fantastic for that amount of
studio output.
On top of that, the show received
great feedback not only from the
industry but also from the audience,
proving, once again, that virtual
technology is mature enough to cope
with any broadcast requirement.
