Vizrt software now integrates with Omneon Spectrum media server

Vizrt has announced the integration of its graphics software products with the Omneon Spectrum media server, providing an end-to-end workflow solution for the creation and playout of live graphics.
With this seamless combination of technologies, graphics are integrated with video from content capture, through to storage, and playout. Selected video is played out through Vizrt’s powerful Viz|Engine 3D renderer in an easy-to-use and continuous production process.
“This is a very fast and user-friendly system,” explained Petter Ole Jakobsen, the CTO for Vizrt. “Video content is the fuel for all graphics creation. We’re using video directly in our graphics system, particularly for real-time compositing and real-time editing. This integration will dramatically change the way people work and enable our users to produce complete stories with less equipment. It’s a very exciting development for our product line, and we’re thrilled to offer this integration to our existing and potential customers.”
By using Omneon’s software development kit, Vizrt developed its own media sequencer plug-in for the Omneon Spectrum video server. Currently, Viz|Content Pilot template graphics software and Viz|Trio character generator system are integrated with Omneon’s media server, with Viz|Weather 3D weather software, and the Viz|Ticker system to be integrated shortly.
"The power of integrated live-action video and animation control provided by the Vizrt system brings significant cost-efficiencies to the graphics production of news and sports programs. We are pleased that Vizrt chose Omneon's open native APIs for implementing such production capability," said Geoff Stedman, vice president of marketing for Omneon Video Networks.
