Bergen, Norway, February 06, 2013. Vizrt Ltd. (Oslo Main List: VIZ)
Vizrt Ltd. announced today a deal worth USD 570,000 for the implementation of
broadcast graphics products with a television station in Eastern Europe. The
broadcaster is a new Vizrt customer and is building a newsroom workflow and
virtual studio with Vizrt's products.
Included in the deal is a newsroom workflow centered around Viz Content Pilot.
The system will give journalists access to graphic templates inside of their
newsroom control system. The journalists fill out the templates, create maps
from Viz World and build a MOS playlist that is then
sent to the Viz Trio
systems in the control room.
From the control room, operators of Viz Trio, Vizrt's real-time 3D character
generator (CG), will trigger live graphics from the MOS playlist to air. The
studio will include Viz Virtual Studio for creating a real-time virtual set that
is flexible and easy to use. Viz Trio will be able to control content in the
Virtual set as well as other live on-air graphics.
Vizrt provides real-time 3D graphics and asset management tools for the
broadcast industry - from award-winning animations & maps to online publishing
tools. Vizrt's products are used by the world's leading broadcasters and
publishing houses, including: CNN, CBS, Fox, the BBC, BSkyB, ITN, ZDF, Star TV,
