Vizrt has announced the release and integration of Viz One (v7) and Viz Story (v2), to enable creatives to make media editing a fully seamless part of their complete live production workflow and create stories more quickly.
The two packages combine browser-based editing and publishing with a fully-fledged metadata backend, which will allow journalists in the field and editors in any location to work together to edit, publish and re-edit both urgent and complex stories for air with greater speed, ease and quality.
Vizrt claims that users will need minimal training to edit from a browser with full access to stored files, stories, graphics and metadata. A story created in the field can also be picked up again in the broadcast centre for further refinement, versioning or complete re-editing for a different platform with full flexibility using non burned-in graphics and concurrent editing tools.
“In today’s environment, high quality, speed and editing from anywhere in an integrated workflow is what our customers are looking for,” stated Daniel Nergard, president of Vizrt Global. “The combined power of Viz One 7 and Viz Story 2 gives our customers an easy-to-use solution to edit audio, video and graphics so they can streamline content production across different platforms in different aspect ratios without compromising very high quality standards.”
Viz One is positioned as a premium production workflow management platform that simplifies collaboration for editorial teams needing to find content and create stories quickly. The latest v7.0 release enables video editing by integrating Viz Story 2 to complement ingest, graphics, content aggregation, logging, metadata association and multi-destination publishing capabilities.
The Viz Story browser-based video editing and multi-platform publishing tool, which now has expanded collaborative video and audio editing capabilities, allows content to be delivered from any location without expert skills due to its integration with Viz One. The new v2.0 release also enables content creators to search for and access assets using metadata, to choose whether to include graphics, and to publish finished articles for broadcast when combined with Viz One 7.
