2013-03-11 17:32:21

See us in Las Vegas, April 8th – 11th 2013. Booth SL3305 NAB is the world’s largest event covering the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums. At this year’s show, representatives from Vizrt’s worldwide offices will be on hand to demonstrate the company’s completely integrated graphics and video workflow. Vizrt technology enables operators to distribute and monetize content to mobile devices, web portals and any screen. Highlights within the Vizrt booth will be its recent advancements for media asset management (MAM), broadcast graphics, as well as online and mobile video delivery. Two public shows, scheduled each the hour, will provide live, interactive demonstrations of the latest Vizrt products in action. One show will focus on new technology for weather reports, while the other will provide a broader overview of using live virtual set and immersive graphics technology. Developing for the future The powerful Viz Engine, Vizrt’s real-time 3D compositing system, now has IP-streaming capability. This allows broadcasters to stream multiple formats and resolutions simultaneously for efficiently creating online and mobile graphic and video content. Broadcasters are beginning to look beyond HD to 4k. At NAB, Vizrt will preview the breakthrough 4k rendering capability of the Viz Engine. Live encoding and high-speed video branding Encode live video from high-resolution to any format at speeds faster than real-time for online and mobile devices with the Viz Media Engine. The multi-platform production workflow allows broadcasters to have high-quality video and custom graphics and branding for every device, all happening in a single step. Automated transcoding of video content is also processed through the Viz Media Engine for video on demand (VOD) services. Graphics and branding are added to the video content during the transcoding process ensuring an efficient, high-quality presentation for the end user. 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. Video integration and clip store Adobe and Vizrt combine to create a package that gives the editor complete control of graphic and video content from within Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 for live and post-production requirements. Video content can be reached from the Viz Media Engine through Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 giving editors access to content across the complete asset management solution from Vizrt or using the Viz Media Engine as a bridge to other asset management systems. The latest version of the Viz Media Engine offers a comprehensive media management platform from ingest to playout for local clip and still stores up to full enterprise media asset management and archive systems. At NAB, Vizrt will show the Viz Media Engine as an integral component of the unique unified workflow solution offering the tools to present efficient multi-platform delivery with consistent branding across all media channels. Complete online workflow This year at NAB, Vizrt will present a highly integrated workflow for online. Journalists and publishers can produce video and text other content from the same solution and use video efficiently in the storytelling. Monetize video content online with a premium workflow with DRM through a cross-platform implementation with the Viz Media Engine and Vizrt partner Vimond. Social TV With the Social TV solution, your audience becomes part of the story. Using interactivity and visualization tools, broadcasters tell the story quickly and compellingly with viewer interaction. Content is captured from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Instagram as well as third party partners like never.no, TrendrrTV and Mass Relevance. Weather and news maps Viz Weather has become a sophisticated weather forecasting and reporting system with the ability to use any data set and a large range of data visualization tools. See the system in action during our Viz Virtual Studio public show. Viz World is Vizrt’s premiere mapping solution. With integrations with DigitalGlobe, OpenStreetMaps and Waze, broadcasters now have access to the world with imagery, streets and traffic data.
