Abstract

Outdoor sports television broadcasts often require additional information besides the video images to enhance the understanding of the status of the competition. A realtime photorealistic simulation of the ongoing event based on the localization provided by a GPS and the terrain information in a GIS is proposed in this paper. The system developed is based on the high performance graphic toolkit OpenSceneGraph for the generation and rendering of the simulation in realtime. It also considers the adaptation of the output for broadcasting and streaming without requiring any special hardware what makes it affordable also for tight budget producers.
