Barco And Vizrt Demo Integrated Backdrop Solutions At IBC 2007

At IBC 2007, Barco, Hall 1, Stand 235 and Vizrt, Hall 2, Stand 219, will demonstrate the two company’s best-of-breed backdrop solution.
Vizrt and Barco recently completed the integration of Barco’s displays and processors with Vizrt’s 3D graphic renderer, Viz|Engine.
The combined Vizrt and Barco systems enable very high resolution backdrop outputs that allow the studio presenter to work interactively with the displayed graphic materials on set. This is achieved by integrating the high-resolution graphic output provided by Vizrt with Barco displays. It creates a more flexible set design capable of easily inserting interactive graphics and background scenes while maintaining the natural delivery of the presenters.
Barco’s IBC booth will feature a 3x3 times mDG50 50" OverView D series video wall system, that integrates cutting-edge DLP technology and is designed and optimized for use in 24/7 mission critical environments. Vizrt’s IBC booth will have a Barco 4x2 times cDG67 67" Overview D series video wall system utilizing Viz|Video Wall ER technology on display and Peyote Design’s interactive technology within its booth. The demonstration will highlight a complete production workflow solution, including integration with the full line of Vizrt software, including Viz|Trio character generator to control the real-time interactive show, Viz|Multi-Platform Suite (MPS) for real-time graphics and video content delivery to mobile devices; Viz|Curious Maps mapping software; and Viz|Quattro, a still and clip store workflow solution.
“The integration of our Viz|Video Wall ER technology with Barco’s versatile display technology brings our shared clients the industry’s most flexible solution for studio backdrop solutions,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, Corporate Technical Officer, Vizrt. “By combining these best-of-breed technologies, we can assure our joint customers that their integration will go smoothly and that they will realize the most presenter-friendly and interactive solution possible for studio set designs.”
“The integration of our processors and display technology with Vizrt’s Viz|Video Wall ER technology is a natural fit,” said Alain Solomon, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Barco Security & Monitoring Division. “Therefore, with this relationship, we deliver more value to our joint customers and ensure high performance, real-time interoperability of the systems we provide our clients.”
