Sky Scope and Polymotion take Best Technical Innovation in Sports at Broadcast Awards

We’re thrilled to announce that the Broadcast Tech Innovation Awards last night named Sky Scope Best Technical Innovation in a Sports Broadcast.

The Broadcast Tech Innovation Awards celebrate the exceptional teams behind the most outstanding broadcast productions of the past year and spotlight the industry talent creating the television productions with the most impact. 

The 148th Open | Sky Sports' Volumetric Capture

Sky Scope featured an incredible use of volumetric capture technology, allowing a full 360-degree inspection of a volumetric golfer’s swing. The Open pundits analyse technique like never before, using holograms of players including Dustin Johnson. The project, a collaboration between Dimension, MRMC, Nikon, Sky Sports and Sky Creative Agency, was the debut use of the Polymotion Stage, the world’s first mobile 3-in-1 solution volumetric capture studio.

"The possibilities for volumetric video in live broadcast are mind-blowing and I’m delighted that Sky Scope has won another prestigious award. Thanks to Broadcast, to Sky, and everyone involved in bringing this innovation to life - not least some of the world's best golfers, who took the time to be scanned on the Polymotion Stage."

Simon Windsor | Co-founder and Joint Managing Director, Dimension
