The Vietnam Cable Television Corporation (VTVcab) announced today that they are officially beginning operation of advanced production systems featuring Vizrt’s complete media solutions. Vizrt is the world leader in advanced real-time 3D graphics, automation, sports analysis, & asset management for the digital media industry.

The solutions from Vizrt include: Media asset management (MAM), newsroom systems, design and control of 3D graphics, and studio automation. The technology being implemented represents the most advanced systems used by major broadcasters and media companies around the world. 

Advanced studio productions

A key feature of this system is a virtual set with augmented reality (AR) capabilities, and a physical studio with AR. Both studios will be controlled using the Viz Opus compact control room, which features automation, graphics, and video controls all in a single system. This new approach to studio production future-proofs VTVcab’s news broadcasting capabilities, allowing them to be able to bring information to their audience faster and with stunning visuals to make any story easy to understand. 

VTVcab will gradually apply this technology to sports news and analysis shows on TV Channel, Football TV, and Sports News HD. Entertainment, cultural programs, and other programs will also benefit from the production solutions.

The solutions VTVcab are putting in place also take into consideration the strength of social media in the Vietnam market, the growth online video services, the rapid increase of the number of mobile devices, and the trend of using online video services over internet-connected devices. The automated technology application program allows VTVcab to supply the fastest VOD service in the country, and actively produce quality programs that are distributed to multiple platforms, reaching their audience no matter how they prefer to consume content.
