Nautilus Studio was founded in 1993. It is a privately owned company that currently resides near Budapest, the capital of Hungary.
The company got its name – Nautilus – not just from the famous novel by Jules Verne, but also from the game software one of the founders of the company worked on with a then friend of his in the eighties. This computer game won a Europe-wide competition in 1989 and was marketed in several European countries and in the US as well.
The background of the members of the company is in software development, computer graphics, broadcast video and cinematography.
For almost twenty years, we have been specializing in sports graphics. Software and computer systems developed by our company have been used for the broadcast of many international sports events, among these the basketball European Championship in 1997, Canoeing World Championships in 1998 and European Championships in 2002, Modern Pentathlon World Championships in 1999 and 2008, European Championships in 2006, Freestyle and Greco-Roman World Championships in 2006 and European Championships in 2002, Judo European Championships in 2012. Besides international events, Nautilus Studio has been the broadcast graphics provider on more than two thousand sporting events - either domestic or international - broadcast by Hungarian broadcasting companies, among these MTV and Duna Television (the public broadcasters in Hungary) and almost all major private broadcasters like RTL Klub, TV2, ATV, Hir TV, etc. One of the founders of the company also had the privilege of being a member of the staff that broadcast the fencing competitions for every Olympic Games since Sydney 2000.
Besides sports we developed special computer applications for a number of quiz shows like the Hungarian versions of Wheels of Fortune and Jeopardy and lots of others. We were contracted by broadcasters on quite a few television shows where intelligent, data driven graphics were needed that were impossible to do with off-the-shelf standard broadcast or computer equipment.
