How did Apple make this 4/5 split screen?

Here is a screen shot of a 4/5 split screen, and the person in the last 5th is walking towards the other side of the stage. How can they keep the person in view in the last 5th of the screen while he is walking? Do they use a tracker to move the whole frame? Here is a screen shot.

Here is the actual video.

That's switched live during the event through a production switcher. Live camera is feeding the speaker walking around and the rest of the screen is filled with the graphic. The camera operator keeps the speaker centered and that image is cropped and put into the proper location by the technical director.

Super easy to do live and can also be pretty easily created in graphics.

Thank you for your response. I would never have guessed that. My boss was asking if I could do this in post production.

Sure that's super simple. You can either crop and place the video or use a Matte to place the video into.

Then lay the graphics alongside however you see fit.

It's just a multi-layered screen. It's easy to do in both PPro and AE.

Just make sure your camera operator is smooth and has a good fluid head tripod to follow the action!

Have done similar live production using a TriCaster switcher, with presenter headshot inset next to his PowerPoint graphic, worked out great.

Thanks

Yes Walter,
The problem I have is the camera operator did a poor job of keeping him centered in the video because the guy walking made sudden moves. Only when he is standing still or walking slowly does this work for me. So certain times I can do it as long as the camera keeps him centered. I was
thinking there might be a way to have the video, which would be under the graphic layer, somehow motion tracked to keep the speaker centered. Too much work and time even if I could do it.
