Title: Visual Computing in Sports Broadcasting

In the last decade new algorithms and computational power opened up many possibilities to revolutionize tv production. Static on-screen graphics has been replaced or complemented by dynamic real-time rendered content being populated by databases and sometimes triggered in automatic rundowns. More recently studios which are being augmented with virtual graphics become more mobile and demand for new solutions. One domain which has constantly been innovating in this respect is sports broadcasting. In this talk I will show which role Visual Computing plays nowadays, while elaborating some concrete examples. Furthermore, I will point on some topics which will have an increasingly important role in the years to come.

Remo Ziegler is 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 layed on innovation and development. At the same time he also took over a part time role as a Sales Manager and had even the role of Director of Sales Europe ad interim for eight months. His research interests include image-based rendering, 3d reconstruction, immersive displays, and video technology. He received a master of science in computer science from ETH Zurich in 2000. During two years, Ziegler worked as a Research Associate at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) in Boston while being a teaching assistant at Harvard Extension school. After a short year as a Research Associate at NICTA in Sydney Australia, he started a PhD in Computer Graphics based on holographic imaging. During this time he had published several patents and written various publications with one achieving the EUROGRAPHICS Best Paper Award in 2007. 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.
