Name of Project: BT Sport app
Recipient: BT Sport
With: Second Spectrum, Sceenic, Visualise, Tiled Media, Deltatre, Moov, Opta
Project summary: With football and other major sports forced to take place behind closed doors, fans missed the shared experience and camaraderie. BT Sport moved rapidly to develop technologies from Sceenic, winners of the BT Infinity Lab innovation competition. Watch Together allowed fans to watch the game from home while still enjoying the social interactions they were used to, in the stadium or in the pub. Viewers with Apple TV could even use their iPhones as cameras and microphones to be seen and heard by their friends on the big screen. A timeline feature on smart TVs allows fans to create their own replays.
