Go behind the scenes of the virtual studio BBC Sport has launched for the Beijing 2022 Olympics


BBC Sport, Creative Director, Motion John Murphy discusses design and technology choices

Presented at the Helen Mills Theater in New York on May 24, the SVG Sports Graphics Forum brought together creative and technology leaders behind renowned sports broadcasts for a day of networking, exchanging information and sharing ideas in the rapidly changing world of live sports graphics. In addition to the live event, SVG hosted a special virtual supplement on June 1 as a follow-up to dive deeper into some projects with speakers who were unable to attend the event in New York.

From groundbreaking remote production workflows to stunning virtual studios, BBC Sport has innovated in a variety of ways for its coverage of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022.

After rolling out a largely home-based operation that heavily leveraged virtual studios for its Tokyo 2020 coverage, BBC Sports has unveiled a new VR studio for Beijing that took viewers from a mountainside log cabin to a virtual ski resort, and beyond.

In this virtual case study presentation, find out how BBC Sport’s virtual studio efforts for the two Olympics differed in approach, but ultimately led to the same end goal.
