A deep dive into the world of Supponor Virtual Advertsing solutions

Overview

Premium, reliable and proven Virtual Advertising solutions in Supponor the world of Sports & Entertainment

Supponor’s award winning products allow customers to increase the value and audience experience of live sporting events by replacing physical real-world objects, such as LED signage, with alternate visuals that are accurately placed and, moreover, simulate the real-world conditions such as sun and shade. In addition to such ‘virtual replacement’, Supponor’s technology is also capable of placing realistic looking objects in and around the sports venue to create additional opportunities to deliver targeted messages and branding. All of this is done in real-time as part of the live TV broadcast.

Supponor is devoted to providing very high quality and visually authentic virtual placement and replacement in a manner that flawlessly blends into the event, while minimising impact on the TV production. Those principles are deeply embedded into the products, platform architecture, integration models and operating practices Supponor provides.
