Vizrt Ltd., a world-wide supplier of production tools for the digital media industry, provided a complement of sports graphics solutions to FOX Sports for coverage of the NFLs Super Bowl XLV, held Sunday, February 6th, at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
FOX Sports began using Vizrt at the beginning of the 2010 NFL season and deployed multiple Viz Trio and Viz Engine systems for the Super Bowls expanded coverage. The new system proved a huge score for the broadcaster.
We were given an incredible opportunity to display our graphics throughout one of the most stunning facilities in the world on Super Bowl Sunday. Vizrt enabled us to create elegant graphics, incorporating them into our pre-game by displaying graphics in Jumbotrons outside the stadium, in our booth displayed on an LED backdrop, and of course within our on-air presentation said Zac Fields, Director of Remote Graphics, FOX Sports.
FOX Sports has embraced Vizrt systems based upon the softwares superior capabilities, said David Jorba, Senior Vice President, Operations, Vizrt Americas. The speed with which it can make production changes and its inherent flexibility make the Vizrt system a winner with FOX Sports.
We owe a huge thank you to our Vizrt contacts for their incredible support during the Super Bowl production, said Gary Hartley, Executive Vice President/Creative Director, FOX Sports. The Vizrt presentation was seamless. In all, I believe it was one of the most visually impressive Super Bowls ever.
