Vizrt Selected for Graphic Design Overhaul at Top Argentinian Networks

Publish date:

Bergen, Norway, October 17, 2006 - Artear Channel 13, broadcasters of Argentina‘s top-rated news program, and owners of the 24-hour news channel, Todo Noticias, have selected Vizrt graphics software to update both networks‘ logos, promos, news, weather and traffic reports. Artear Channel 13 chose three Vizrt Viz|Trio real-time 3D character generation and graphics systems. For Todo Noticias (TN), which broadcasts throughout South America, two Viz|Trio systems and two Viz|Artist 3D animation design interfaces have been installed to enhance the overall graphic look of its news coverage. Both networks outsourced the graphics design and implementation process to Gizmo Studios based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“Vizrt was the only product in the market capable of making a real change to our networks‘ images,” said Ricardo Pipino, General Manager, Artear Channel 13 and Todo Noticias. “We felt the competitive products were just typical character generators, and we wanted the dynamic approach that only Vizrt could offer.”

Because TN operates a live, 24-hour news channel, it had to train its staff on the new Vizrt system in a way that wouldn‘t interfere with getting programs to air. To implement this change, Pipino hired Gizmo Studios.

“Gizmo Studios did an excellent job creating a brand new graphical look for our networks, while training us at the same time until we were ready to go on air with the new look,” Pipino said.

“We discovered several, distinct advantages with the Vizrt system,” said Emmanuel Verruno, Owner, Gizmo. “First among them is that you can run a considerable amount of effects and graphics in real time, so there‘s no need to edit the graphics or work on effects in post production. This is why Vizrt software is so appealing for live broadcasters.”

Gizmo‘s goal was a complete overhaul of Artear‘s and TN‘s on-air graphical image. Thanks to the new Vizrt system, both networks now have a more dynamic, global feel. The quality of the new look was a direct result of the work done by Gizmo Senior Designer Lucio Santinni, a specialist in television branding, who determined that Artear‘s and TN‘s new look would be a mixture between European and American styles. Their new look incorporates that of a European newscast with effects more commonly seen in the U.S.
