“Our AR solution utilizes Viz Engine for rendering. We add on the Viz Virtual Studio software on top of that to manage the tracking data coming in for any tracking system. Viz Engine is the same tool that our customers are using today to render all their graphics and playout video. This means that the same engine that is being used for a video wall for one show, can be used to display AR graphics for the next, giving the broadcaster a lot of flexibility and saving them money,” said Gerhard Lang of Vizrt.
“Our solution with Viz Virtual Studio and Viz Engine can be used with any tracking system so the customer is free to decide which works best for their budget. Many different options are available so considerations need to be made for how they want to use the system. Will it be in the studio? Outdoors? Do they want the AR graphics to be interactive? For all these questions there are tracking systems that will work well and are easy to set up and maintain. Vizrt’s professional services team will make sure that the broadcaster knows their options so they can make an informed choice and then will ensure the system is set up and the broadcaster knows how to maintain the system on a daily basis,” said Lang.
