– The entire coverage will take fans closer to the players
– Enhancing the Sound Design
– New Chants for some of the rising players
– Entire broadcast coverage will stand on 3 verticals – Uniqueness, Interactivity & Emotion
IPL 2021: How the visual experience for the fans will be enhanced?
“I can tell you that we are working very closely with our sound designers on enhancing the sound design from last year. There are going to be new chants as some of the rising players who are now not on the cusp of greatness, are already in the midst of that journey. That forms a part of what we’re calling our belief in verticals.
“So, there are three pillars or three verticals that form a part of the overall product experience, the first part is unique. The second one is interactivity. And the third one is emotion. In the viewing experience, we are looking at three components. One is the visual design, which is now that you do not have crowds in the stadium, you can get much closer to players with your camera angles, you can have a lot more replays. You can have many more ultra-motion and super slo-mo replays because you’re not cutting around to the crowd.
“So, I think the action on the ground will be seen much better and viewers will genuinely feel much closer to the action than they have in the past. Now that the stands are empty, you can place your cameras in novel positions from which you can get different views of the game. I think that’s one part of it, which is the visual design.
