Viz Story 1.0 brings easy video storytelling to journalists

The release of the new story production tool from Vizrt provides an easy tool for editing video and distributing to any platform including social media and media asset management systems.

 

Good storytellers shouldn't need to be technical wizards. They just need the tools to tell their story easily, professionally, and get it to their audience immediately. To accomplish this, Vizrt has created Viz Story, a browser-based (HTML5) editing tool that allows the journalists to quickly create compelling video stories with state of the art 3D graphics, and easily distribute them online and to social media.

Capture

Use video from any source, including professional video shot from the field, mobile phone video, or files from a media asset management (MAM) system. Search your ingested media  and add to a timeline for editing. Combine Viz Story with Vizrt’s MAM system for live editing on growing proxy video.

Edit

Edit with multiple clips of any aspect ratio on a timeline. Add high-quality graphics to your video using templates for a fast way to add text and define the style of Text On Video (TOV) content. Graphics are rendered by our state-of-the-art 3D graphics rendering system.

Easily edit videos for multiple aspect ratios. Adjust the position of your video in your project with keyframed panning. This keeps the point of interest always in the center of the frame – even when using 16:9 video in a square video project.

Other editing features include:

  • Overlay video, audio and graphics
  • Video transitions
  • Preview of graphics animations

Share

Instantly publish your final video anywhere, including Facebook, FTP, to disk, or to our media asset management system. The system also includes a third-party REST API for custom publishing workflows.
