Vizrt signs USD 1.8M broadcast graphics deal with European sports network

(PresseBox) (Bergen, ) Vizrt Ltd. announced today a deal worth USD 1.8 million for the implementation of broadcast graphics products with a new sports network in Europe. The sports network is part of a larger broadcast group that uses Vizrt as its primary graphics systems provider. By using Vizrt graphics products, the broadcast group is able to unify and integrate its graphics production workflow throughout all of its networks.

The deal includes multiple Viz Engines for compositing real-time video and graphic content live on-air in three languages.
