It was today announced that global sports producer Sunset+Vine has been commissioned by World Rugby to produce coverage of the tournament which will take place in Cape Town this weekend.
Following on from the huge success of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, where the producer was the host broadcaster, Sunset+Vine is partnering with World Rugby to deliver more than 39 hours of coverage for the three day event.
Coverage of each of the matches is enhanced with the use of more than 20 cameras, including Spidercam as well as innovative AR graphics which provide engaging visualisations of all of the vital stats and data, giving fans a truly immersive experience.
As well as world feed, Sunset+Vine will also be producing Super Sessions, available to rights holders, which will include features, highlights, interviews as well as additional content from the tournament.
Held once every four years, the Rugby World Cup Sevens will see 40 teams from all six World Rugby regions compete in the knockout tournament to see which team will be crowned world champions. New Zealand currently hold the title for both the men's and women's teams and will be hoping to defend their titles in South Africa.
In addition to coverage of the tournament, World Rugby have also commissioned Sunset+Vine to produce The Hot Desk, an innovative programme for both digital and broadcast which will be presented by Elma Smit and Greg O'Shea.
