Canal 13’s Coverage of Copa America 2015 Stands Out with Real-Time TV Graphics by deltatre

by Press Office

With the Copa America currently underway, the second oldest television station in Chile, Canal 13, is delivering more than just the ‘regular’ type of football coverage to its audience for the South American international competition.

Indeed, building on their successful World Cup collaboration, the Chilean TV station has again chosen sports digital and broadcast specialist deltatre to provide the design, technology and delivery of a fan-engaging, on-screen and studio-based football graphics – including match and presentation graphics – to gain unrivalled football coverage of the oldest tournament in Latin American.

Joining forces with providers Datafactory (data) and Vizrt (production tools), at the heart of deltatre’s personalised solution for Canal 13 is Magma, the firm’s powerful proprietary sport software that instantly turns live sport data into broadcast-ready TV graphics with visually stunning components of the tournament in Chile.

The solution, relying on official data ingestion for content foundation, can provide football fans with new levels of insight, and help the presenter with a comprehensive and interactive information tool, rich in pre, in-match and post match analysis and statistics.

Marco Antonio Cumsille, Executive Producer of Deportes 13 said “We rely on deltatre’s leading experience in providing cutting-edge sports solutions; the TV Graphics project brings all key moments of the Copa América beyond the screen and strengthens the way Canal 13 encompasses technology, whilst creating a new way for our audiences to consume and enjoy football.”

“Thanks to Canal 13’s ambition to deliver visionary sports coverage, deltatre can add a new dimension of value to their audience viewing experience” said José Luis Kruyff, deltatre’s Commercial Manager (America): “Being able to drive fans is paramount to today’s TV sport, and Canal 13 is doing it with a perfect mix of new, dynamic and visually compelling elements.”
