Vizrt solutions for online production

At IBC 2017 Vizrt (stand 7.A20), creator of software-based media solutions, will showcase new tools for media companies like a production platform that will prepare them for the future.

The online production suite gives media companies a way to get their live multi-camera productions published to any platform, including Facebook Live and VOD. Viz Opus creates an end-to-end workflow using IP-based tools for live productions from live feeds to any output channel – all in a single box controlled by the journalist. Integrated social TV tools allow media companies to engage with their audience, displaying live Facebook comments and likes that enhance the live experience.
From the same desktop, the journalist uses Viz Story to edit video and audio with multiple language tracks, add graphics, and instantly publish segments from the live production to social media.

Featuring augmented reality (AR) graphics from some media companies, The Big AR Show will show how to tell engaging stories that capture and retain audiences and add new revenue streams by using virtual graphics in the studio or outdoors. The Big AR Show includes photo-realistic augmented reality (AR) graphics, a 7-meter Leyard videowall and an interactive screen. Powered by Viz Engine and Viz Virtual Studio, this tour of AR graphics will take place every hour on the Vizrt booth.

Technology and new ways of consuming media is changing how broadcast production is performed. Viz One brings the entire organization together with collaboration on one platform using a common set of tools to find, produce and manage media regardless of content type and geographical location – now including Amazon S3 cloud storage.

Smart sports production

Today, sports rights holders can only target a single region with the physical ads in the stadium, limiting their global reach and commercial income. The Viz Eclipse virtually replaces perimeter advertising boards with region-specific ads. This allows clubs and federations to sell targeted advertisements in every market, opening up additional revenue streams. Viz Eclipse can handle the virtual ads production directly from the control room, limiting the interaction with existing broadcast workflows and avoiding additional hardware at the venue. After extensive and successful testing over the last months, Viz Eclipse will have regular applications in Europe during the 2017/18 football season.

Viz Arena allows sports broadcasters and production companies to monetize live sports content by inserting virtual ads on or beside the playing field. In addition, Viz Arena also creates added value for sports programs by adding AR graphics tied to the playing field.

The Vizrt booth (stand 7.A20) will feature demonstrations of the latest developments, a social zone where guests can meet with Vizrt executives to discuss the future of media, and daily social events from 17:00-18:00. (8/17)
