Hammerhead is now
Same teams. Same skills
New combined powers.
The award-winning Sky Scope technology was back in action for Sky Sports’ coverage of golf’s oldest tournament, The Open.
Using cutting-edge volumetric capture technology, Sky Scope 2.0 enabled Sky Sports to ramp up its on-screen performance analysis of golf’s biggest superstars.
Launched in 2019 at the 148th Open Championship, Sky Scope changed the way fans and players view the golf swing. Highly realistic, volumetrically captured avatars of golf’s top players allowed the Sky Sports broadcast team to track, pause and analyse each golfer’s swing from every angle.
This year our award-winning Polymotion Truck was parked directly on the practice range, allowing the players to be captured in a matter of minutes as they prepared for the tournament. Within 48 hours the avatars were in use live on-air – complete with layered visuals showing the swing path of each player on-screen.
By capturing the swing of The Open champion Collin Morikawa, the Sky Sports team were able to visualise and pinpoint – live on-screen – exactly what gave him his winning edge.
