Vizrt provided a 4K graphics workflow for Sky Sports Ultra HD test at the Ryder Cup.


The Norwegian company provided two 4K-compatible v3.7.0 Viz Engines with Matrox DSX LE3 4K SDI video cards and a Viz Trio character generator to create onscreen graphics for the trial workflow. “We weren’t doing a full production, just showing selected holes, so we only used a small percentage of the graphics during the main show. That said, pretty much everything we tried from our Vizrt HD graphics worked in 4K straight out of the box,” said Sky Sports VFX supervisor Phil Madge.
