Singular overlays were recently showcased during the live stream coverage of the Danish 2nd Division football league, produced by Danish media company Ekstra Bladet. Using overlays from a Singular Marketplace theme as the basis for the look, the package includes a set of lower thirds, a scorebug, and a watermark.
With up to 12 matches being produced simultaneously, 4 different operators each use their own instance of Singular Studio and reference an external Google Sheet to quickly copy image URLs of team logos and other assets into the Studio control fields.
After COVID-19 lockdowns delayed the start of the season in March, the league’s first match finally aired mid-June. With the success of this cloud-based Singular workflow, the Danish 2nd Division and Ekstra Bladet are planning to expand their Singular use in future seasons to include even more types of overlays.
