Vizrt integrates with Signal for Facebook and Instagram
Vizrt has extended its partnership with Facebook to provide more tools to help broadcasters build audience engagement and discover valuable Facebook and Instagram content. The new tools are featured in the Vizrt Social TV solution’s integration with Signal.
Signal for Facebook and Instagram is a free discovery and curation tool for journalists who want to source, gather, and embed newsworthy content from Facebook and Instagram across news, culture, entertainment, sports, and more – all in one place. Journalists interested in seeing what conversations are resonating on Facebook can monitor which topics are trending and then quickly display related content that has been shared publicly – unranked and in chronological order – from both people and pages for deeper context on those trends.
The Vizrt Social TV solution integration with Signal provides media companies with the ability to include Facebook and Instagram posts, images or videos, selected by their journalists, into custom collections which can then be integrated with broadcast graphics packages for on-air display.
“Through the combination of the Vizrt Social TV solution and Signal, journalists have a way to gather news as it happens in real-time,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, CTO, Vizrt. “This is a powerful addition to the storytelling a media company can do on-air as well as online, right where the conversation is happening.”
