TELEFOOT, the new Mediapro sports channel, kicked off on August 21st with the vital help of wTVision. A 24-hour channel dedicated to the world of French football, designed with cutting-edge technology.
Our creative team worked on all visual aspects of the brand new channel and implemented their concept into impactful broadcast graphics.
Everything from overlay and on-air graphics, video design and Augmented Reality was conceived by our designers, that created the complete identity of TELEFOOT and quickly adapted it to a TV concept. In addition, wTVision was responsible for the complete branding package, including self-promotional videos and trailers, bumpers and openers.
Every visual aspect of TELEFOOT was designed from scratch by a completely dedicated team, that joins its creative capabilities with years of experience implementing branding concepts to TV.
Software and operation
At the center of the huge operation is wTVision’s Studio CG. Our video and graphics control system is responsible for the entire studio environment and live production of TELEFOOT, offering a customizable workflow and an intuitive interface.
Both the on-air graphics and all augmented reality are controlled by Studio CG in a combination with R³ Space Engine, wTVision’s 3D render engine. This was possible thanks to the integration with StYpe’s Redspy tracking system, which is part of the solution for all virtual graphics.The AR solution is used in two studios and it includes virtual infographics. With this setup and by integrating with Stats Performance, that provides real-time data, wTVision can generate immersive augmented reality graphics with official statistics.
wTVision’s Studio CG also provided two plugins to boost all of TELEFOOT’S live shows automation. With our NLE plugin – NLE Studio Editor – we developed a solution that allows editors to connect to our server, choose and fill in the template they want and automatically generate an animated template that is sent to AVID’s Media Composer.
Our NRCS Plugin – NRCS Studio Reporter – allows journalists and editors to work with the INEWS newsroom system. The NRCS offers journalists the means to write their pieces, choose and fill in the graphics and send them to the timeline. The plugin is integrated with Stats Perform, so journalists can have graphics automatically filled with tables, results or scorers.
TELEFOOT represented a huge step when it came to create, build and operate a complete channel from scratch. wTVision’s team worked on almost all aspects of the broadcasting industry to make sure nothing went unnoticed, from the technical and creative point of view.
This channel is part of a larger footprint that wTVision is leaving in French Football, since we’re also responsible for the creation and implementation of all on-air graphics for Ligue 1 and Ligue 2.
This comprehensive project was an end-to-end solution developed by wTVision’s team for French football, since we were able to develop a workflow that incorporated both the competitions and the main broadcaster (TELEFOOT).
