We calibrate broadcast footage of a sports event to learn the pan-tilt-zoom configurations used by a camera operator. We combine this information with tracked player positions to build a structured predictor. Given unseen player positions from a new game, we use the learned predictor to generate target pan-tilt-zoom values for a robotic camera. As a result, the automatically generated broadcast footage looks more human-like.
