Vizrt Highlights IP Streaming, Integrated Approach to Video and Graphics Production and Distribution at Broadcast Asia 2013

At the Broadcast Asia Show, the emphasis in the Vizrt booth (#5H3-01) will be on the importance of an integrated workflow for video and graphics production and distribution. Vizrt will demonstrate the IP media streaming capabilities of its Viz Engine real-time compositing and rendering engine, which is at the heart of the Vizrt graphics, newsroom, and presentation workflows.

Multi-platform content distribution

This past April, at the 2013 NAB Show, Vizrt introduced a new IP version of Viz Engine that’s capable of real-time IP streaming VizEngine_Multiplatform 5 28 13input and output, including compositing of 3D graphics and HD/SD video. Multiple Viz Engines can render the same content and output different formats for multiple platforms. Removing the need for a costly video card or transcoding capability for every platform, the IP version provides an affordable and compact solution for online delivery.

Vizrt will also show a multi-platform workflow enabled by the Viz Media Engine media asset management system, which automatically encodes live video from high-resolution to any format at speeds faster than real-time for online and mobile devices. As part of its file-based transcoding and media asset management workflow, it also integrates video, graphics, and branding tailored to the targeted device in a streamlined way.

Efficient newsroom workflow

Vizrt gives journalists the edge for getting a story on-air and online quickly and efficiently with a newsroom workflow that integrates easy-to-use templates with the journalists’ native newsroom computer system (NRCS). With Viz Content Pilot, journalists access these templates for creating graphics, editing maps with Viz World and selecting videos from Viz Media Engine to add to a playlist for on-air use and online multi-platform delivery.

Vizrt partner Mosart will demonstrate the tight integration between its newsroom automation system and Vizrt’s live graphics workflow to enrich the content and quality of newscasts while also reducing costs.

Complete online workflow

Vizrt will present a highly integrated workflow for online with the Vizrt Online Suite. Journalists and publishers can produce video and text other content from the same solution and use video efficiently in the storytelling.

Social TV

With the Vizrt Social TV solution, Vizrt will demonstrate how the audience becomes part of the story with social media content captured, moderated then visualized using Vizrt’s 3D graphics capabilities. Content is captured from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Youtube, Instagram as well as third party partners like never.nonever.no will be at the booth with Social TV demos that will highlight the latest enhancements to never.no’s Interactivity Suite – the technology that connects fragmented media platforms across broadcast TV systems, mobile, and social media platforms — enabling real-time viewer participation, social TV, and synchronized companion apps.
