Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer uses the large-scale Media Wall developed by Perceptive Pixel, featuring Vizrt software, during coverage of the U.S. Presidential Primary races in Texas, Wisconsin and New Hampshire.

Vizrt (Bergen, Norway), a leading provider of real-time, integrated broadcast graphics software is collaborating with New York-based, Perceptive Pixel, creator of an advanced multi-touch display system, including the large-scale Media Wall that has been seen on-air for coverage of the 2008 U.S. Presidential primaries. The project was showcased at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas earlier this year.

Perceptive Pixel's Multi-Touch display solutions, now integrated with Vizrt software, enables broadcasters to use its sophisticated and intuitive multi-touch gestures to control graphics presentations that they create with the full line of Vizrt software.

"Extremely large video walls, used as studio backdrops and as interactive tools during election coverage and weather forecasting, represent a fast-growing trend in production," said Petter Ole Jakobsen, CTO, Vizrt. "The major breakthrough is the integration of Perceptive Pixel's multi-touch feature with any graphical or video element in Vizrt."

Perceptive Pixel's Media Wall is the most advanced multi-touch system on the market, creating new opportunities for collaboration, interactive image manipulation, and breathtaking information visualizations. The Wall is 94 inches diagonal, full HD 1080p resolution, and can sense an unlimited number of touch points simultaneously.

It is a complete turn-key system that can be used with its suite of bundled applications, easily integrated with existing single-touch applications, or support the development and deployment of advanced multi-touch native applications with its included Perceptive Pixel Multi-Touch Application Framework SDK.
