SONY CES 2022 – ‘fill the world with emotion, through the power of creativity and technology’
Sony CES 2022 showed that it is still a massive company with some of the most innovative TV, camera, camera sensors, gamers consoles, movie/music production, drones, and much more. It is also developing EV and AV/VR technology.
It is working both sides – with creators to ensure their vision gets to the end-user and vice versa the end-user to ensure they see what creators intended.
For example, during COVID lockdowns, Sony’s Crystal LED Theatre frees creators from various restrictions in shooting, such as location, weather, and time, by implementing a production environment that integrates the background image with the subject in real-time. A special Sony VENICE camera enhances the creators’ toolset.
Sony’s Hawk-Eye Innovations’ latest achievement introduces new skeletal tracking and data-visualisation systems. These systems make it possible to track the movements of athletes and objects instantly and accurately from the live game video captures, collect the skeletal data and virtually recreate the live-action.
Sony is also conducting a PoC (proof of concept) with Manchester City Football Club to create a next-generation global online fan community that integrates the physical and virtual worlds. The PoC will leverage Sony’s image analysis technology and sensing technology, as well as Hawk-Eye’s tracking systems, to explore the creation of new forms of entertainment to engage sports fans all over the world.
