Vizrt (Bergen, Norway) announces that Viz Multichannel 2.5—the latest version of its powerful channel branding software—will be unveiled during the company’s invitation-only “Amsterdam Sessions,” September 10-15 in the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam. Viz Multichannel integrates Vizrt’s realtime 2D/3D graphics and effects with industry-leading broadcast automation, traffic, and delivery systems, giving broadcasters an effective, hands-off workflow for presenting tickers, banners, snipes and program schedule graphics for more dynamic channel branding.
 
“This new version makes the creation, scheduling, and delivery of channel branding an automated, cost-effective process that will benefit broadcasters in today’s demanding, multi-channel business environment,” said Ran Yakir, head of R&D Israel, Vizrt.

“Creating and delivering effective, visually compelling channel branding is essential to attract and retain loyal TV viewers.”

Multichannel 2.5 provides many new user-friendly features and operational capabilities that further streamline and automate the operational workflow, including full integration with Viz Ticker3D—an advanced, flexible, creative tool for designing and building graphics-rich tickers. With this integration, 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 may 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. It is more channel-based, and enables users to import and export settings, save to/restore from default on a per-channel basis; and utilize multi-language support. The import/update mechanism in Multichannel 2.5 was improved, resulting in dramatic performance enhancements and the ability to work with all traffic and automation systems available.
