Canadian Sports Network installs FOR-A virtual studio
Broadcasters create graphics from FOR-A's digiWarp-EX II virtual studio system and flow them right into a ticker system that runs continuously along the bottom of the screen.
The Score, Canada’s sports cable channel, recently acquired FOR-A’s digiWarp-EX II virtual studio system. It is the first time the network has used virtual sets.
All of the channel's 24-hour-a-day sports news and information programming is using the digiWarp-EX II.
Since implementing the system last fall, The Score has cut costs and time by not building physical sets. digiWarp-EX II’s template-based feature allows the channel to easily drop in as many backgrounds as needed.
Graphics from the virtual set can flow right into a ticker system that runs continuously along the bottom of the screen, an effect not possible with a traditional, physical set.
