Vizrt will launch Viz Multichannel 2.5 at IBC 2009, the latest version of its channel branding software. The new version makes the creation, scheduling and delivery of channel branding an automated, cost-effective process.
Viz Multichannel integrates the company's real-time 2D/3D graphics and effects with broadcast automation, traffic and delivery systems, giving broadcasters a smooth and automatic workflow for presenting tickers, banners, snipes and program schedule graphics for more dynamic channel branding.
The software will be shown during the company’s invitation-only “Amsterdam Sessions,” from Sept. 10-15 in the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam.
Multichannel 2.5 provides many new user-friendly features and operational capabilities that streamline and automate the operational workflow, including full integration with Viz Ticker3D — an advanced, flexible, creative tool for designing and building graphics-rich tickers. Ticker3D elements can be positioned on-screen with their “buttons” in a pane, which allows the tickers to be triggered either manually or automatically, timed or by automation. Users can also define the import and update rules for these Ticker 3D graphics to be scheduled either by multichannel or according to traffic/automation system.
Multichannel 2.5 also adds a new settings user interface that is more channel-based, and enables users to import and export settings, save to/restore from default on a per-channel basis; and use multilanguage support.
