Viz Engine powers graphics for South Africa’s Premier Soccer League

The Premier Soccer League (PSL), Africa’s largest soccer league, has chosen Vizrt solutions and Los Angeles-based graphic design firm Reality Check Studios to produce its graphics packages. PSL games are broadcast on SuperSport, an African all-sports TV network. The South African Broadcast Corporation (SABC) is integrating the Vizrt graphics package designed by Reality Check Studios in collaboration with Johannesburg-based Universal Production.

Reality Check Studios created the graphics for Super Sport using Viz Artist animation software, and Vizrt’s graphics rendering engine, Viz Engine, takes them to air. SuperSport was the first to launch the new graphics package for the Soweto Derby between the Kaizer Chiefs and the Orlando Pirates. The match was seen live in more than 40 countries around the world last November.

The Viz Artist and Viz Engine combination enabled designers from Reality Check Studios to create a standard look for all in-game graphics, which includes lineups, match clock and score, full-screens, lower-thirds and player matchups.
