Going live: Solent University students prepare for final project

Solent University‘s Virtual Production Studio, installed by CJP, becomes the focal point of an exciting live basketball broadcast showcased in a recent article by TVBEurope. CJP is thrilled to see the state-of-the-art facility in action, empowering students to push the boundaries of live broadcasting.

The six students driving the project wanted to do something “a bit different that has not been done before on their course” for their final project. They combined their regular live basketball match coverage with the studio presentation opportunity presented by using the university’s brand-new LED virtual production wall.

TVBEurope discovered that coverage of Solent Kestrels games is usually presented from a courtside position, but the team decided to employ Solent’s new virtual production stage for this special broadcast. “Having the presenters and pundits in our brand new virtual production studio will allow us much more time and space to really get inside the game and bring to life the key talking points both pre game, at half time and post-match,” explain the students.

“The LED volume will allow us to bring up clips and graphics such as player images and scores tables to highlight the narrative the presenters are communicating to our viewers. The studio presenters will throw across to the pitchside reporter at appropriate times to get updates from court as well as player and manager interviews.”
