Plus AR Fan Cam can be run on Facebook and Instagram so anyone can create their own Club effects, take videos or photos to instantly share. This user generated content vastly increase the reach and engagement with Fans at the Stadium and online.
Developed by Catalyst’s Augmented Reality team who created AR effects for the 2018 AFL Grand Final and Big Bash Cricket, the AR Fan Cam platform allows sporting teams and sponsors to run the latest augmented reality technology in stadiums and engage fans with the face-masks, effects, lenses and filters which have been so popular on Social Media in recent years.
“Face-masks and lenses have been huge on Social Media - its so exciting to amplify the engagement at stadiums. The AR Fan Cam platform we’ve developed opens up so many options for augmented reality effects and animations by Clubs and Sponsors.” Gabriel Howard, Creative Director Catalyst.
Fans can also create their own videos and photos using the same AR effects seen on the big screen via the Club or Sponsor’s Facebook page. This greatly increases the reach and engagement of AR Fan Cam, increases social media followers and branded content being shared by Fans.

The future of fan engagement at live events
AR Fan Cam builds on the huge popularity of “Dance Cams” and “Kiss Cams” which have become famous across all sporting codes since they were introduced in the early 1980s. AR Fan Cam takes the experience into the modern era and increases fan engagement and interaction with the latest augmented reality technology and user generated content for social sharing.
Lenses, Face-mask and effects on Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram have become hugely popular with everyone from Sports Stars and Musicians to Politicians and Royalty creating their own to share across Social Media. Now teams and sponsors can amplify this engagement using broadcast screens inside stadiums with thousands of people watching and generate social engagement with people creating their own on their smart phone.
