SMT's Synthetic Video™ system is a great tool for Basketball broadcasts since it offers several ways to narrow in on the play action and help develop a solid story line for the show. The audience can be led to a court level viewing to see a replay from the player's perspective and witness great pass protection or gutsy moves first hand. The ever-present live audience at a basketball game can be eliminated from the shot to reduce eye clutter and really narrow in on player action. Other distractions from a replay, like irrelevant players, can also be removed to maximize the replay effort.
SMT's data driven technology provides a great resource for illustrating coverage zones with real measurements and other player info. Paired with the facility to maneuver players about the court and provide unique camera angles, the Synthetic Video system works well with critical commentary for basketball replays.
