Viz Libero 8.2 Dominates Data with Code-Free Integration

Vizrt, the provider of real-time graphics and live production solutions for content creators, has released Viz Libero 8.2. This update of the comprehensive sports analysis tool focuses on data with the introduction of Datacenter and data visualisation tools.

“This release is about getting the most from your data by centralising data sources while adding more variety, volume, and speed to data visualization and analysis. We have natively integrated data providers used most by our customers into Datacenter, and will be adding more in the coming months,” says Edouard Griveaud, Senior Product Manager for Viz Libero, Vizrt.

Vizrt Datacenter makes it much faster and easier for operators to connect live data sources to fields in graphics templates without any scripting, custom coding, or special knowledge. They simply select which data they need. Operators can also connect incoming live data fields into scenes such as clock-and-score graphics, as well as heatmaps.

Additionally, all data is contained in one repository, so there is no need to switch out providers every time for different matches or leagues. The data can be accessed in a single central, connected Viz Libero project.

Innovative Data Visualisation Tools

Viz Libero 8.2 gives eight new native data visualisation options, including penalty maps, attack maps, and player and team comparison statistics. All the operator needs to do is select the visualisation option and click on the match or team to auto-populate data into the graphics.

Transparent AR

The Transparent AR feature removes the playing field when flying into AR mode, presenting only the pitch or field grid, giving broadcasters even more AR visualization options. All the graphics in Viz Libero can be presented as either Augmented Reality or Transparent AR.

Tool of the future – AI Cutout

Released in Viz Libero 8.1 for basketball and soccer, AI Cutout has been expanded in this release to enhance any sport, including the notoriously difficult-to-key sports of swimming and ice hockey.

The AI Cutout exploits the power of Viz AI to intelligently recognise and mask players to generate near-perfect cutouts in record time, saving valuable processing time.

“We timed an experienced operator. What previously took him 12 minutes to create by manually masking the outlines of players, brushing, and finetuning to remove overlaps, could now be done in 2 minutes, shaving valuable time. This makes AI-based analysis, such as 3D flights, possible mid-match, to give viewers richer insights into the game,” adds Griveaud.

The click of a button is all it takes to create an AI cutout. The algorithm is so exact that it ignores objects like players, cars, ads, and anything outside the calibration grid. Viz Libero 8.2 also includes backend refinements and replay integrations to better support sports productions.
