It is always fascinating to see what people have done with Vizrt technology and for the Olympics in London, our friends at Kenziko and Mammoth Graphics did not disappoint.
Mammoth Graphics was hired by BBC to build a custom graphics package for the network's coverage of the games.
For interactivity, Mammoth Graphics joined forces with Kenziko who had been working with the Microsoft Kinect, Microsoft's motion sensing input device, to control Vizrt scenes with gesture control. The result was a new way for the BBC presenters to display graphics in an interactive way on-air.
Kenziko joined Vizrt on our booth at IBC 2012 and used the Viz Virtual Studio as a platform to show off Kinetrak, their gesture control software.
Chris Black, Corporate Communications Editor for Vizrt, caught up with Pete Lane from Kenziko and Phil Long of Mammoth Graphics Ltd to discuss this partnership.
