Vizrt has revealed this week that it will be highlighting extensive new functionality and integrations for its MAM system at NAB 2015.
Vizrt recently released version 5.7 of it’s state-of-the-art MAM system - Viz One - a future-proof investment for broadcasters to manage all of their assets. Viz One’s technology comes from more than 15 years of experience in the MAM industry and is featured in more than 200 installations worldwide.
New and enhanced features at NAB 2015 will include:
Next generation 4K/UHD and IP encoder and transcoder
At NAB 2015, Vizrt will feature a video production workflow that streams IP and inserts graphics into live content up to 4K resolution. The workflow brands content easily for multiplatform distribution while not requiring any extra transcoding.
Extensive new web editor capabilities
Viz One’s browser-based interface, Studio, is improved with new capabilities including truly frame-accurate proxy video. It now also supports file viewing during ingest. Studio does not require any additional plugins and includes the search and preview of subtitles as well as the ability to make simple edits to video. Studio also includes a new preview for graphics that have been stored on the video timeline.
Store and preview any content
There’s no longer a need for extensive transcoding of media and creating “house formats”. Viz One now enables users to store and preview any material in any format, easing the production of content for web and mobile.
Log and segment to find and air the right media
Viz One’s Logging tool now supports high-res playback for high-res compliance and QC workflows. Other new logging features include the new segmentation mode that enables defining segments on assets and the new thesaurus metadata component that drastically improves metadata entry and search.
Viz One Workflow Engine
The latest version of the Workflow Engine includes a new graphical workflow designer tool based on BPMN 2.0, simplified reporting tools and panel integration in Adobe Premiere Pro.
New virtualisation and cloud media storage options
Viz One now supports Amazon S3, Glacier connector and OpenStack Swift. This allows customers to use object oriented storages for their media.
Managing online and on-air video content
Vizrt will show Drop Desk, a new easy way to publish video online from a newsroom control system like iNews. Vimond’s Highlights system also integrates with Viz One, using open Rest APIs, to give journalists access to online content used for web allowing it to be repurposed for on-air use and managed with Viz One.
Vizrt’s Viz One MAM solutions will be on display on the company's Vizrt booth (SL2417) during the NAB Show between 13-16th April, 2015.
