FOX Sports Japan
Integrate a multitouch screen into live studio environment
The success story of in-studio touch applications continues. We have travelled halfway across the globe to install a 103” touch screen in the brand new studio of FOX Sports Japan in Tokyo. The idea was to bring more graphics control to the host and thereby allow for a more dynamic flow of the program.
The touchscreen is now the centerpiece of the studio, located between the newsdesk and the discussion area. We provided FOX with the necessary hardware and the M2Touch gateway and plugins to assure a smooth and comfortable touch experience. Naturally, we took care of the installation and integration ourselves on set. The application running on the screen ranges from displaying schedules to player comparisons and lineups. It even incorporates a telestrator functionality for in-game analysis. FOX Sports Japan will use the application mainly to upgrade their full live broadcasts of Japanese pro baseball games.
