Stream your live production with Facebook Live and Viz Engine

Integration ideal for simultaneous streaming of on-air content and custom live content for Facebook.

Vizrt, the leading provider of story production tools for digital media publishers, will demonstrate a tech preview at IBC 2016 for streaming live video and graphics on Facebook Live and harvesting user comments.

Media companies are able to stream directly to Facebook Live using the real-time graphics engine and video server, Viz Engine, with no conversion from SDI needed. In addition, a simple browser-based control activates the live streaming and harvests user comments in the Vizrt Social TV solution. The user comments can be moderated and added to graphics for display live on air.

“The flexibility of the Facebook Live integration allows media companies to display their live, broadcast quality content simultaneously through multiple channels”, said Petter Ole Jakobsen Vizrt CTO. “The tool is ideal for growing social media followers and harvesting valuable viewer feedback.”
