Vizrt Signs USD 1 Million Broadcast Graphics Deal in France
Martin Burkhalter, Vizrt's CEO, stated, "This deal is a very good example of a broadcaster signing up to our integrated technology philosophy, which is steeped in the economic realities of the media industry. Following implementation, the customer will have a cost efficient way to produce, store, repackage and reuse compelling, high quality and uniformly branded content. The station will also have multichannel and multiplatform distribution capabilities, thereby increasing their addressable audience, critical in today's quest for advertising revenues, while at the same time protecting the bottom line."
The deal provides the station with tools for news production, including Viz Content Pilot, Vizrt's content management solution. Viz World is easily accessible in the newsroom, control room and design department, and will allow the broadcaster to display branded maps.
In Master Control, Viz Multichannel will handle all channel branding on multiple networks while being triggered by the stations automation system. Viz Ticker will also be in place to provide constant scrolling of news information. Real time, HD content will be handled by Viz Engine.
The company is also bolstering its online and mobile presence with an investment in the Vizrt Online Suite and Viz Media Engine. The Vizrt Online Suite will be driving web and mobile content by providing a sophisticated CMC and back-end web publishing platform. Viz Media Engine will provide transcoding for videos published to the web and mobile devices.
