Vizrt has formed a strategic partnership with ABATEC Electronic in Austria to integrate ABATEC's patented local position measurement (LPM) technology within Vizrt's complete broadcast solution to deliver a real-time data positioning system for live sports production.
ABATEC's LPM system is based on microwave technology and provides real-time position data of unlimited objects with extreme accuracy. It works with small sensors placed on people or objects. The LPM system determines the position, permanent speed, acceleration, distance traveled, and provides analysis of a multitude of objects at sporting events.
For example, LPM can determine the current positions, speeds, and distances between all race cars on a track in real time.
The Vizrt/ABATEC system displays the position, velocity and acceleration of an object in real-time as either standard graphics or as virtual overlays.
