Vizrt announces Viz One 7 and Viz Story 2 to “empower creatives”
Vizrt has announced the release and integration of Viz One 7 and Viz Story 2 with the aim of empowering creatives by making media editing a fully seamless part of their complete live production workflows.
By combining browser-based editing and publishing with a fully-fledged metadata back end, Vizrt said that journalists in the field and editors in any location can work together to edit, publish, and re-edit both urgent and complex stories for air with greater speed, ease, and quality.
With minimal training, any user is said to be able to edit from a browser with full access to stored files, stories, graphics, and metadata. Conversely, a story created in the field can be picked up again in the broadcast centre for further refinement, versioning, or even complete re-editing for a different platform with full flexibility using non burned-in graphics and concurrent editing tools.
Daniel Nergard, president at Vizrt Global, commented: “Our customers live in a world of increased expectations of speed, quality storytelling, and monetisation of content. Making media accessible anywhere to create efficient workflows is our biggest task. The combined power of Viz One 7 and Viz Story 2 gives our customers an easy to use solution to edit audio, video, and graphics so they can streamline content production across different platforms in different aspect ratios without compromising very high-quality standards.”
Viz One 7 is described as a premium production workflow management platform that makes collaboration easy for editorial teams needing to find content fast and create stories quickly. The Viz One 7 release enables video editing by integrating Viz Story 2 to complement ingest, graphics, content aggregation, logging, metadata association, and multi-destination publishing capabilities.
Viz Story 2 is a browser-based video editing and multi-platform publishing tool that is claimed to transform how digital media houses and broadcasters edit and distribute news programs and video content. With only one single installation point, collaborative video and audio editing capabilities are expanded and content can be delivered from any location without expert skills due to Viz One integration. Viz Story 2 also enables content creators to search for and access assets using metadata, to choose whether to include graphics, and to publish finished articles for broadcast when combined with the latest Viz One 7 release.
