    Rowing Championships Weekend

    We produced the rowing championships for the Ivy League, the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and the Colonial Athletic Association. Used a Tricaster Mini SDI to feed both an outdoor spectator LED video board, and live video streams to ESPN+, SnappyTV, Stretch Internet, and Sidearm Sports.

    Here are some photos:

    "Real-time" is not that accurate.
    The drone obviously has a GPS chip, but it turns out that getting that info onto a broadcast-friendly Google Map page was quite difficult.
    So we created some animations in After Effects with the yellow dot moving on the map. Each animation was a different duration, based on how long we expected to each race to take.
    Then we started the map video playback right when each race started, and overlaid it on the live video every now and then. The location was actually quite accurate, and no one could really tell that it wasn't "Real-time".
    We never showed the map close to the finish line, because that might be quite inaccurate. But the first 3/4 of the each race were fine.
