Vizrt has signed a $620,000 deal for the implementation of broadcast graphics products with a new television station in the Middle East.

The deal is for a full suite of broadcast graphics products that will form the foundation of the station's on-air look as well as streamline the day-to-day workflow.

Viz Content Pilot will allow the newsroom editorial staff to manage their graphic content in the newsroom control system by changing templates, creating maps in Viz World, and adding each element to a Media Object Server (MOS) playlist.

In the control room, Viz Trio, Vizrt's character generator (CG), triggers each graphic from the MOS playlist to air. Graphics and templates are designed in Vizrt's real-time 3D design application, Viz Artist.

In the studio the presenters can have control of graphic pacing with Viz Anchor. Viz Video Wall ER provides the backdrop for the studio as a large video wall with infinite possibilities in content.

In Master control, Viz Ticker3D displays text and images in multiple carousels, receiving content from live feeds and directly from the newsroom editorial staff. All graphics are rendered in real-time by Vizrt's real-time 3D compositing engine, Viz Engine.

With these new tools in place, the television station has an end to end graphics solution that provides them with the same technical and graphical capabilities as used by the world's top broadcasters.
