This summer, Jürgens TV asked LUPIXX to support two open-air television live events in Austria and Germany, hosted by German singer Florian Silbereisen, with carefully crafted augmented reality effects. The LUPIXX team aimed to smoothly blend reality and AR tracked to the show’s camera feed to enhance the at-home viewing experience.
LUPIXX began by intuitively previsualising the event’s material in Notch, sending ideas back and forth with the client and adjusting as necessary. With access to industry-standard stadium broadcast technology, the creative team mechanically tracked a Spidercam setup and MovieBird crane, using stYpe and TrackMen systems to ensure their effects were aligned with the live camera and ready for the truck to mix into the live show.
For full power over their Notch-driven graphics, The team used Hippotizer Tierra+ MK2s as their media servers and were left with a stable workflow free of any unwelcome surprises during the broadcast. The show featured many familiar faces within the schlager tradition, and even pop legend Anastacia made an appearance. According to MeinBezirk, it was the show’s most successful year since 2016.
