Following the ground-breaking acquisition of NewTek by Vizrt earlier this year, IBC2019 will play host to the newly combined group’s first joint presentation.
The acquisition, which is five months old, saw two of the world’s most innovative companies in video join together to become the leading voice in the future of IP-based, software defined visual storytelling content production.
NewTek, as well as Vizrt and partners, will be using NDI, the most widely used IP video standard on the planet, throughout all the exhibition halls at IBC.
At IBC2019, Vizrt, a world-leading provider of visual storytelling tools for media content creators, will be promoting the latest updates to its core platforms and product ranges for the future of media;
- Viz Engine 4, the cornerstone of the future of media workflows, will launch at IBC2019, following its preview at NAB, and will feature throughout The Big AR Sports Show
- Efficient newsroom and automation workflows presented in Connected Storytelling, with new features in the automation range that will prepare media companies to succeed in a future of complex, live productions easily and error-free
- The importance of IP as the format of the future will be presented at A New Era of Live Production, looking at why NDI is one of the key standards for achieving efficient IP production
- IP-based, software defined visual storytelling (SDVS) production and traditional SDI enhancements to production platforms will enable powerful automation-driven storytelling capabilities
The Vizrt Stage on Stand 7.B01 will also premier a range of disruptive thought leadership presentations, as well as fresh content for the renowned feature presentations. This includes The Big AR Sports Show which will show audiences how the Vizrt Sports software can be utilised for easy-to-use AR, play analysis, and the monetization of sports and live events content.
The Vizrt Sports offering will be an important feature for visitors from sports broadcasters and rights holders in preparation for the Olympics, UEFA EUROs, and other major sporting events in 2020.
