Vizrt enhances Viz Media Engine
The next generation of Viz Media Engine (VME) video production system will be on display at IBC, providing users with what the company calls the most efficient and fastest video production workflow as well as an optimized multi-platform delivery workflow.
The VME production workflow can also be used within existing MAM systems and Vizrt partner Vimond Media Solutions will join Vizrt at IBC, demonstrating how to best monetise end-user experiences based on live and on-demand video services. The Vimond video player supports simultaneous streaming to different devices and enables payment for and access to content directly through a television set. The combined Vizrt/Vimond solution allows broadcasters to create and offer their own online video services through HTML5, as smooth streaming, as a Flash player, etc.
The Viz Multichannel playout system will also be a key part of the Vizrt booth at IBC this year. As broadcasters increase the number of channels, master control room tools for branding, automation and playout become increasingly critical to the bottom line.
Viz Multichannel simplifies the playout of playlists, providing a single client that handles the playlist elements of one or multiple channels. With this application, broadcasters can insert commercial messages on multiple channels in a fully automated way. It combines pre-scheduled, timecode-based playlist operations with the possibility of adding real-time 2D and 3D graphic effects and powerful branding capabilities.
