MOOV Delivers Graphics For ITV Horse Racing Coverage

News Image
MOOV has announced that it is to provide on-screen graphics, virtual reality and telestration services for ITV's horse racing coverage.

ITV's new four-year deal to show UK horseracing on terrestrial television took effect earlier this month, and the coverage includes live broadcasts of almost 100 days of racing each year across its channels. Commencing with New Year's Day meeting at Cheltenham, MOOV will be involved in 41 days of racing broadcast on ITV's main channel, with coverage including events such as the Grand National, the Epsom Derby, the Cheltenham Festival and Royal Ascot.

At each race meeting, MOOV provides an OB vehicle housing some of the latest graphics technology, including two dual-channel ChyronHego Mosaic turnkey graphics platforms. The Virtual Placement feature utilises scene-tracking technology to overlay virtual furlong markers, finish lines and winning jockey silks on the grass, while Paint is used to telestrate on the action, tagging horses to help identify each one, as well as providing highlights and tracking tools. Paint integrates with the EVS network to allow clips to move backwards and forwards without tying up VT layout lines.

RaceBuilder software from Piranha Graphics incorporates live race data into the on-screen graphics, including runners and riders, condition of the course and betting information.

Nev Appleton, Director, MOOV, said: "We're incredibly proud to have won this prestigious contract with ITV. The leading-edge graphics technology that is now available, combined with the artistic talents of our staff, enables us to present all the race information people need in innovative new ways."
