Viz|World Version 1.2 Creates 3D Channel-Branded Maps In Minutes

Vizrt has introduced the latest version of its Viz|World mapping software � Viz|World Version 1.2. Viz|World is a template-based solution that enables users to create branded maps and geographical animations in real-time from within most of Vizrt�s control applications.
Viz|World�s embedded interface within other Vizrt software applications allows users to quickly generate branded, animated maps and add them to graphic templates or directly to a 3D scene.
The new version of Viz|World is now fully integrated with Microsoft�s Virtual Earth platform - for on-demand delivery of high-resolution satellite and aerial imagery. Through this product integration, broadcasters can now use imagery products stored on Microsoft�s Internet-based Virtual Earth platform with the control they are accustomed to with Viz|World. 3D graphical elements can be added to the satellite imagery in real-time using a template-based system.
Viz|World is also now also fully integrated with the newest version of Viz|Artist � Version 3.0. Among the many advances inherent in Version 3.0 are: RTT Advanced Materials plug-ins for photo-realistic rendering of 3D objects and materials, new Visual Data Tools (VDT) plug-ins for increased financial and statistic database functionality, and enhanced interactivity with touch screen devices.
Viz|World is powered by Viz|Curious World Map technology. Maps or templates are first prepared using Viz|Curious World Maps and Viz|Artist design software. Those templates and maps are stored within a Viz|World server that can be accessed by any number of users throughout an organization. Maps are available to clients such as Viz|Content Pilot control and management, Viz|Artist, Viz|Trio CG, and Viz|Weather software. The Viz|Engine renderer accesses the Viz|World server to play out the maps.
�Thanks to the power of our template-based system, users can define the look and feel of maps with consistent branding in real-time,� said Halid Hatic, VP Business Development, Mapping Technologies, Vizrt. �From within the familiar Vizrt software, users can easily define how the map operates, whether it�s the inclusion of 3D objects or animation, and the operator can play out the content of the map. Previously, maps created within a 2D template could not be changed once rendered. With this latest version of Viz|World, maps can be changed at the last minute � at any stage of the process.�
Vizrt will be showing Viz|World version 1.2 at Broadcast Live, June 19 to 21 on stand C87 at Earl�s Court 2.
