This time the abstr^ct:groove team has been involved in a very special project.
Commissioned by SKY, we were asked to design something quite unique in the world of TV shows: a projected interactive scenography for one of the most successful sport shows in Italy , the UEFA Champions League.
Playing with modular transformations, we developed a series of sets that can be switched and changed in real time from a software interface as requested by the TV show director.
The studio set features 21 interchangeable backgrounds and a projected interactive table.
Some of the backgrounds are supplied with virtual monitors that can display infographics, charts and live camera signals from the various soccer matches around Europe.
