Vizrt to demonstrate 4K graphics and video playout, studio automation, and image-based tracking at NABShow2015
Live video playout and graphics production in HD, 4K, SDI & IP
The latest version of Viz Engine, Vizrt’s real-time compositing engine, serves live video, clips, and real-time graphics to eight output channels from a single system in HD, 4K, SDI, and as IP streams. The multiple channels can be controlled together or individually. This and other capabilities will be demonstrated at NAB 2015, including Viz Engine running as a stand-alone video server, part of a SAN solution, driving a video wall, and part of a complete graphics and video workflow.
Viz Opus offers broadcasters a quickly deployable, easy-to-use, fully integrated, and compact control room in one system. It combines high-quality video and graphics composited by Viz Engine, the Viz Mosart automation system, and an audio mixer, all integrated to work seamlessly together. A full control room will be demonstrated including robotics at NAB 2015, to display the capabilities of Viz Opus and the Viz Mosart studio automation system
Controlling every screen in the studio
Viz Multiplay will make it’s NAB premiere showing how to control video and graphics content on a video wall and on multiple studio screens. Viz Multiplay allows broadcasters to have configuration freedom for filling screen content with an intuitive screen design tool and an easy to use touchscreen interface.
A one-box system for severe weather alerts
New to NAB will be the Viz Weather Alerts one-box solution, a cost effective severe weather alert system, that manages and controls the display of watches and warnings, overlays maps with satellite and radar imagery, integrates traffic data, and creates easy communication between the broadcaster and the viewers with integrated social media curation and distribution. All this is done from a single intuitive user interface with no monthly data fees.
Graphics and video virtually everywhere
Virtual graphics and augmented reality graphics with video will be featured in several places on the Vizrt booth. The Vizrt public show will feature the latest capabilities of Viz Virtual Studio including immersive and interactive graphics. 4K cameras and tracking systems will provide immersive graphics and video that will be displayed at the Vizrt booth throughout the show.
Interactive news and sports
Vizrt will feature a new package for broadcasters to easily create interactive news and sports presentations using a series of templates available in Viz Trio, Vizrt’s character generator, or through MOS using Viz Pilot. The journalist simply builds a playlist of content using the templates and then goes live on-air driving the pace of the story with an interactive screen.
Engage the audience with Social TV
The Social TV solution is now available in a one-box solution including an interactive, customisable graphics package and that can be quickly integrated into any broadcaster’s workflow. Other new features on display at NAB will be geo-located analytics from any source for heat-map visualisations and the ability to trigger content directly to air using Social TV’s Feed Streamer component.
Promotions and channel branding
The production of channel promotions can be speeded up with Vizrt´s complete workflow for promotions task management, templated graphics, promo versioning, and real-time playout of promotions video and graphics. Promotions projects, clip versions and metadata can be managed with Viz One, which is fully integrated with the Adobe suites of products, amongst other, as well as Viz Multichannel for playlist management, rules and promotions triggering. Record and store the aired graphics into Viz One for multiplatform distribution.
Traffic reports and maps
Help to guide an audience through the morning traffic with the new traffic tools in Viz World, Vizrt’s real-time 3D map system. Traffic data from an integrated data provider, places incidents and traffic flow information automatically on the map and continuously updates with the latest information. When combined with streaming traffic and weather cameras, Viz World gives broadcasters a tool for producing informative breaking news on-air content easily.
