Dimension brought free-viewpoint swing analysis to Sky Sports coverage of golf Championship, The Open, in both 2019 and 2021.
Sky Scope enables pundits to track, pause, and analyse a full 360-degree inspection of the swings of golf’s superstars, using award-winning volumetric capture.
With Dimension and MRMC’s Polymotion Truck, we brought the stage to the range, and capture golf talent directly on site.
“You’ve never seen a golf swing from in front, because the ball is coming at you and it’s a dangerous place to be. Now you’re seeing it and that’s quite a wow factor.”
“There is a real reason why we’re doing this, but at the same time you’ve got to have the viewer going ‘that’s amazing’. I think we’ve absolutely got that balance right.”
“You can pause at any moment you want and analyse any intricacy that makes that golfer unique. I think it’s one of the most innovative steps forward we’ve ever had in sports broadcast analysis.”
Volumetrically capturing golfers' swings gave a unique experience for broadcasters and viewers to visualise and pinpoint live on-screen – exactly what gave Colin Morikawa the winning edge for the 149th Open Championship.
