TV network Azteka uses d3 for the official African World Cup football


The mexican TV network Azteka used d3 to simulate and output content for the offical World Cup TV studio in South Africa. Mexican based production house Darmah used d3 from the very beginning when designing the set of the studio and could therefore easily identify unforeseen problems. As a new TV show needed to be created everyday, with updated content, d3 was the obvious choice to handle the swift changes and updates.

The d3 solution

With d3’s advanced projection methods, the high-res screens could easily be merged into one canvas or be treated as individual groups of screens without any need to change the content’s format or reconfigure the LED processor. Also, as there was a requirement to create a consistent look between the video and lighting, Darmah’s lighting desk controlled the timeline of d3 using Midi Show Control.
