During this year’s edition of SVG’s Sports Graphics Forum our VP of North America, Lawrence Jones, moderated the panel on Augmented Reality: The Wave of the Future Has Arrived:
“Although augmented reality is nothing new to sports production — the 1st and Ten line celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2018 — AR has taken a giant leap in the past three years and is dramatically changing the way stories are told, both on the field and in the studio. What are the best use cases, platforms, and workflows for AR? Is it really all just another delivery system for 2D graphics like player stats and matchups, or can AR truly add another dimension to sports coverage?”
In front of a full crowd, Lawrence was accompanied on stage by Zach Bell, Turner Studios, Senior CG Artist; Zac Fields, Fox Sports, SVP, Graphic Technology and Innovation; Isaac Hersly, Vizrt, Director, Business Development; John Howell, SMT, Creative Strategist and Bradley Wasilition, ChyronHego, Director, Sports Analysis and Lead Sports Analyst.
In addition to moderating the panel, Lawrence also joined Zach Bell and the rest of the Turner team on stage for their keynote presentation of “ELEAGUE – The Design Revolution of Esports”. Below you can see the work The Future Group did with Turner for Eleague Street Fighter V Invitational.
