IBC 2015: Vizrt will use IBC to debut new automation products, including Showmaker a new tool for building and amending rundowns and rundown elements within the Viz Mosart studio automation system (pictured) and Viz Opus control room solution.
Showmaker allows producers to script stories and edit graphics templates and videos through a web-based interface.
The new tool also integrates with Viz Pilot, allowing users to access graphics templates and search video files to add to show rundowns in Viz One.
Vizrt’s Viz Opus compact control room has a new X.Mio3 Matrox board with a total of 12 I/O ports, with eight that can be used as inputs, as well as IP-based in and out. Upgrades also include new support for Cleanfeed and PGM output.
Viz Mosart and Viz Opus also have an enhanced feature set with the company’s file-based workflow tool Viz One, allowing the automatic triggering of file transfers for adapted graphics and multiple OTT platforms.
“Automation today means solutions that are flexible, IP-enabled and easy to use,” said Vizrt chief technology officer Petter Ole Jakobsen.
“Vizrt is committed to continually evolving our tools to meet changing production needs and new media platforms.”
