ESPN PlayBook Touchscreen

Year: 2010
Type: Broadcast touchscreen
Employer: ESPN

Project roles:
• Concept development
• UI design and layout design
• VizRT implementation, animation, and scripting
• Studio support and analyst training

The ESPN PlayBook touchscreen gave football analysts on live SportsCenter broadcasts the ability to create, analyze, and forecast plays with an interactive field. In addition, analysts could make player substitutions, launch player stat panels, and draw atop the graphic.

As each player chip on the field was repositioned, a breadcrumb trail was generated on the field to indicate the starting position and the path of movement.
