Title: Visual Computing in Sports Broadcasting

Abstract:
In the last decade new algorithms and computational power opened up many possibilities to revolutionize TV production. Especially in Sports Broadcasting the urge for innovation and new technologies is very big. Static on-screen graphics has been replaced or complemented by dynamic real-time tied-to-field content being populated by databases and sometimes triggered in automatic rundowns.
Although, there is a big market for second-screen and interactive television, this talk will focus on the technology for the main broadcast signal. I will show which role Visual Computing plays nowadays, provide some examples of the FIFA Soccer World Cup 2014, recent Red Bull Air Race in Abu Dhabi 2015 and explain some of the methods we came up with in order to cope with the challenges posed. Furthermore, I will point on some topics which will have an increasingly important role in the years to come.

Bio:
Industry: Remo Ziegler is currently the Head of Research of Vizrt Switzerland. He has originally joined LiberoVision AG, a start-up company from ETH Zurich, in 2008. During the time at LiberoVision AG his main focus laid on innovation and development. At the same time he also took over a part time role as a Sales Manager and had the role of Director of Sales Europe ad interim for eight months.
Currently his main interest is to innovate the broadcasting industry with novel ideas, which find the way from the labs to a final customer. He enjoys working with excellent scientists and engineers, discussing and realizing possible solutions for real world problems, while creating the elements of desire for tomorrow.
Research: Remo Ziegler’s research interests include image-based rendering, 3d reconstruction, immersive displays, player-tracking, pose-estimation and video technology. After his Master from ETH in Computer Science, he spent two years working as a Research Associate at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) in Boston while being a teaching assistant at Harvard Extension School. It followed a short year as a Research Associate at NICTA in Sydney Australia, before starting a PhD in Computer Graphics based on holographic imaging at ETH. During this time he had published several patents and written various publications with one achieving the EUROGRAPHICS Best Paper Award in 2007.
