The show will include a 7-meter Leyard video wall to show combined video wall and AR graphics capabilities for any studio.

Photorealism and augmented reality graphics
New for NAB 2017, Vizrt will demonstrate photorealistic textures and lighting on AR graphics in the studio, creating a new level of advanced storytelling for any environment.
Vizrt’s virtual sets and AR tools are part of a template-based workflow allowing journalists to define graphics, text and video content for live production. The journalist workflow, combined with design tools that free the graphic artist to build photorealistic graphics and virtual sets, create the most powerful virtual graphics system on the market.
The fastest story creation tool on the market
Vizrt’s brand new story creation tool, Viz Story, will be demonstrated at NAB 2017. Viz Story gives the journalist an easy to use tool to edit video and audio, add high-quality graphics, and publish complete branded video stories to social media within minutes – all from a single browser-based interface.
Live production automation for on-air and online
Vizrt’s automation tools allow media companies to create complex productions accurately, every time, with no need for expensive production switchers and requiring only a minimal infrastructure. At NAB 2107, Vizrt will show how our automation tools control components of a modern control room with a single interface, including video switcher, video server, graphics and audio.
Viz Opus, Vizrt’s compact control room solution, provides newscast automation, real-time graphics and video playout, including playout of commercials, all in a single cost-effective system. Viz Opus is perfect for producing an IP-based live show, podcast, and other smaller productions with minimal space for a “one-man-show” production and playout.
Vizrt’s Viz Engine: At the forefront of the IP development
Vizrt will support complete IP production and playout workflows at several partner booths. Vizrt’s solution helps broadcasters meet the challenges of the SDI to IP transition and for operating effectively in both hybrid SDI/IP and IP-only environments.

A new html plugin for newsroom editing
New for NAB 2017, Vizrt will introduce Viz Pilot Edge, a HTML5-based tool for newsroom integration that gives the journalist freedom of platform and workflow.
