Broadcast graphics are expected in news and current affairs programming – even in short, segment style output. Importing graphics into an editing system will allow the user to enrich the segment but they’d need to be edited for each variant of the content, created a much longer production process. This approach to editing content and adding graphics before exporting and uploading it creates a fairly long process for social or online content that should, by its very nature, be fast-paced and quickly published. The cost of adopting multiple plugins, systems and applications to perform one task will also quickly escalate. Similarly, using expensive engineers’ time to upload content is an unattractive prospect – especially if the content producer is publishing to multiple platforms. As soon as you have two of these channels, it takes twice as long – if there’s four, four times as long and so on. At Vizrt we have produced a tool which allows just this – the easy edit, export and upload of content to social and online channels. And it’s called Viz Story. Viz Story allows media companies to quickly create compelling video stories with full real-time, state-of-the-art 3D graphics and easily distribute them online and to social media. The new tool makes engaging content rapidly available to today’s audiences on any device. Operators can use the tool to select the content they want to feature, easily amend the desired aspect ratio in-system, add broadcast-quality graphics and queue it up for uploading to social channels. No middle-men, processes or additional plugins are required, Viz Story looks after everything from ingest to publication with nothing but a single user operating a single interface. Viz Story also features a collaborative editing element. This lets multiple users anywhere in the world edit a project’s timeline simultaneously from any browser, on any device. This rich editing experience makes sure all users have the latest versions of content through a synchronized, real-time timeline. Existing tools used to create video reports have become inadequate in meeting the demand of today’s audiences who expect content-rich storytelling on online platforms. Publishing content to multiple platforms at the same time needs to be done quickly and efficiently. With Viz Story users can repurpose existing video content in custom resolutions, including Facebook’s square video format. Add Vizrt’s state-of-the-art, real-time 3D graphics and publish your story to online, social media, VOD platforms or any website. Viz Story is perfectly suited for use with breaking news for online, as it only takes minutes for graphics-enriched news stories to be available for multiplatform publishing.
