Vizrt announces Viz Sports Online
Vizrt today announced Viz Sports, a software package that incorporates Vizrt’s creative tools and widgets, that helps create content immerse sports websites right out of the box.
Viz Sports Online is a flexible, modular suite of user-friendly, preconfigured Vizrt tools, providing users with complete creative freedom over the look and feel of web page layouts, image versions and sizes, and overall site structure.
With Viz Sports Online, all video, graphics, text, images, maps, statistics and web publishing tools are available from within a single, user-friendly, drag and drop-based interface. Design-savvy templates let users produce dynamic, branded graphics, maps and web pages that they can fill on the fly with text, images, headers and titles. Viz Sports Online also offers a full video repository with video editing, video playlists, picture-in-picture, and video ad integration capabilities.
Since websites are interactive by nature, Viz Sports Online-created websites let the audience contribute with their own blogs, comments, and personalized user profile pages, as well as participate in discussion forums with thumbs up or down ratings.
Interactivity is further enhanced by real-time user activity updates; the integration of RSS and Twitter feeds; as well as sophisticated, real-time sports statistics provided by Stats.com. Users can create relationships between this real-time sports data and editorial content, such as pages devoted to teams, players, matches, games and special events, to keep viewers fully informed and engaged.
Custom skins give websites a consistent, branded feel. And an extensive widgets library-packed with story pages, image galleries, a video player, animated carousels, menu overlays, tabbed navigation and statistical listings-make it possible to manage content, web page layouts, and microsites without the need for a technical staff.
