Real-time 3D graphics and asset management tools provider Vizrt has ended 2011 with major multi-million dollar deals for the implementation of broadcast graphics products with Romania’s RCS & RDS.

Claimed to be the largest TV and internet provider in Romania, RCS & RDS broadcasts three sports channels, one film channel and several music channels and has begun work on a news-only channel to be launched in 2012.
The offerings will now be enhanced with a full Vizrt broadcast graphics solution used in the studio for set virtualisation and immersive graphics and including real-time HD graphics. The deal will also see use of a character generator (CG) for live events in the RCS & RDS the control rooms. Producers will also be able to create content throughout the facility, displaying real-time weather maps and managing post-production graphics through the Vizrt suite .
"Our goals for the graphics system were high", said Costin Niculescu, Digi TV Technical Manager. "We wanted a system capable of giving the best graphics look, and with Vizrt's graphics system we are able to accomplish all of our goals and more."
