Brainstorm's eStudio Used For Rio Coverage

News Image
A number of Brainstorm Multimedia's eStudio virtual studio applications have been used by Radiotelevisione Italiana (RAI) for its coverage at Rio 2016.

Six applications have been deployed, alongside numerous staff and equipment, including two Brainstorm-powered VR studios to provide program output to RAI 2 and RAI Sports 1 and 2. Both VR studios run on a number of Brainstorm's eStudio which are installed on purpose-built FOR-A workstations with internal adjustable delays and with tracking systems customized by Tecnopoint and Cartoni. The workstations receive video feeds from several studio cameras, plus external live input, from cameras located at the Olympic Stadium and the swimming pool at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium in Barra da Tijuca.

The eStudio toolset provides solutions for all real-time graphics requirements, and enables both design and real-time playout of virtual studios and 3D graphics.

Davide Meda, RAI's Senior Graphics Producer, said: "Following the resounding success of the 'The Voice' program based on the Brainstorm eStudio virtual studio application together with FOR-A and other products, we thought that the Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro would be an excellent opportunity to enhance our sports programing output built on the same Brainstorm virtual studio and augmented reality content to provide our viewers with the best, visually engaging and exciting live content from the Games."

David Alexander, Brainstorm Multimeda, Commercial Director, added: "We are delighted that eStudio is at the forefront of the impressive coverage RAI has prepared for the Games. The raw power and versatility of eStudio are paramount in ensuring complex sports programs provide amazing results, and we are proud to be involved at this hugely important sports event thanks to RAI's use of the Brainstorm products."
