In this highly-practical, workshop-based, advanced subject, you will dive deep into the world of international sports broadcasting, including real-time, augmented reality 3D graphics technology. The rapid adoption of VizRT technology has created a demand for qualified motion graphic designers and operators, cross-discipline journalists, broadcast operators, and technical crew. Through immersive, hands-on practical work, and specialised training, you will gain in-depth knowledge of sports broadcast production, virtual reality and real-time 3D graphics. You will also work together as large production crews to produce sports broadcasts that are streamed live to the world.
