A Winner!

Our recent competition to win two tickets to the Dagenham & Redbridge vs Hartlepool United match certainly attracted plenty of interest. The winner was Anthony Mercer who correctly identified Dagenham & Redbridge's home ground as 'The London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium' and was then first out of the hat in the prize draw.

Anthony is a great football enthusiast and is well known in East London for his work with a number of clubs. He took his son, Elliot, to the game last Saturday and they witnessed a late equaliser for the visitors as the points were shared in a 1-1 draw.

Elliot had his picture taken with Daggers' manager John Still by top TGS snapper, Dave Simpson. Thanks to Anthony for allowing the use of the pic in this blog and a complimentary print is on its way to him right now...



A big thank you to everyone that entered and to Dagenham & Redbridge FC for supplying the tickets. Watch this space for more competitions in the near future!

A Wave!

Here at TGS, we always like to feel welcome when we cover a game.

Enfield 1893 manager, Kevin Lucas, certainly seemed pleased to see the TGS tog at last Saturday's match with Bethnal Green United.

Good to see you too Kevin and ta very much for the wave and smile!...



A Wide One!

With some additional computer processing power installed in the TGS Hub, we've dusted off our GigaPan panoramic head and are starting to use it in anger!

So, what's a GigaPan? GigaPan consists of three technological developments:

» A robotic camera mount for capturing very high-resolution panoramic images.
» Custom software for constructing gigapixel panoramas.
» A new type of website for exploring, sharing and commenting on gigapixel panoramas and the detail users will discover within them.

Here's a 1.48 gigapixel image of Hackney Marshes taken last Sunday (yep, that's gigapixel!). It consists of no less than 264 separate frames stitched together by specialist software. Feel free to explore at your leisure and please add some of your own snapshots...



If you would like to commission a GigaPan of your sporting venue, just let us know. It can certainly add a unique twist to your organisation's website and it is possible to produce stunning panoramic prints of the image.
