Vizrt Demonstrates Immersive 4K Graphics At NAB

Vizrt will be showing visitors how high precision, immersive graphics integrated with live 4K pictures can be achieved with a handheld camera for the first time at NAB 2014.
The demonstration will show a handheld Red One camera, fitted with an Ncam tracking system, shooting 4K images at Vizrt's booth (SL2419). These images will then be processed through Vizrt's real-time 3D compositing system, Viz Engine, which adds virtual elements to create an immersive augmented reality experience of 4K live video aired in real time.
Viz Engine generates the graphics using an NVIDIA Quadro K6000 graphics card and video key and fill is being output from two Matrox dsxle 3 4k cards. The output will be shown on a Christie Quad-HD 84" flat panel LCD display and a Panasonic 65" 4K Ultra HD display.
The combined setup offers the unique ability to create immersive graphics tied to a freely moving camera, at full 4K resolution, and allows the operator to capture quick shots at any location. In turn, producers have the ability to very quickly set up a shot from any location, with immersive graphics added for branding purposes and production value.
Vizrt's CTO, Petter Ole Jakobsen added: "Broadcasters and production companies are keen to experiment in 4K to see what new opportunities it unveils and to revel in the sheer beauty of 4K resolution.
"As the industry looks at the advantages of 4k and how they can develop high-value content, this is something that we'll be bringing to our customers in the very near future to help them better evaluate and enhance their 4K plans."
The demonstration, as well as all other Vizrt products, can be seen at NAB 2014, booth SL2419.
