Broadcasting a live sporting event with virtual crowd noise has been a veritable challenge for LaLiga, a pioneer in this kind of virtualisation, and a step unprecedented among sports leagues around the world. With this in mind, LaLiga has decided to offer a behind the scenes view of the entire process and show fans the innovation and hard work which underpins the technology.
Together they will show fans the process involved in installing a virtual crowd in the stands of LaLiga Santander stadiums for broadcasts. The documentary will show in detail how the virtual sound has been managed, using real audio recorded in stadiums during official LaLiga matches thanks to an agreement with partner EA Sports.
BehindTheCameras is the second documentary produced by LaLiga, which also created TodayWePlay, a special programme examining how the Return to Competition Protocol was produced during the enforced break and on the opening matchdays.
