Studio productions are becoming more complex as broadcasters add more screens to give the journalist more storytelling options. The high number of screens in the studio requires a system that is easy to use and flexible enough to allow different content to be distributed to different screens with different configurations.

Multi-screen control

Viz Multiplay controls a variable number of screens from a single interface. Screens can be of different resolutions and aspect ratios for creative freedom of studio configuration. Viz Multiplay controls an individual screen or triggers content to multiple screens at one time.

Viz Multiplay comes with a powerful design tool to create unique video wall configurations easily. These configurations become presets, allowing the positioning of content in the video wall to be changed live with animated effects.

Playlist of content

Selecting content and building a playlist is very simple with tools to browse media including clips from Viz One, Vizrt’s media management system, graphic animations, stills, or even web content using the optional Screencast tool. Newsroom journalists can also define content for Viz Multiplay using Viz Pilot in their native newsroom control system (NRCS). Journalists define the channel on which the content will be triggered and the configuration: single item trigger or multiple item trigger. The playlist is reflected in the Viz Multiplay interface in the control room.

Control room operation

In the control room, Viz Multiplay operates as a standalone control system or integrated with Viz Trio or Viz Pilot. The Viz Multiplay playlist appears as a series of thumbnails depicting the content of each media item. The operator either triggers the playlist as it was created in the rundown or makes on-the-fly rearrangements of the content. For clips, a countdown is given displaying time remaining. Manual changes to the Viz Multiplay playlist, including the addition of new content and rearrangement of content, are immediately reflected in the Viz Trio or Viz Pilot playlist and vice-versa.

The presenter in control

Viz Multiplay is platform independent and has an intuitive interface designed for easy control on a touch screen or tablet. The presenter in the studio can take control of the Viz Multiplay playlist and trigger content to each screen in the studio at their own pace. The system can be configured to allow the presenter to control content for each screen individually or send content to many screens at once.

Flexibility of output

Viz Multiplay sends content to Viz Engine, Vizrt’s real-time composition engine. Viz Engine displays the content in real-time as a SDI, DVI or IP stream for maximum flexibility output options. Viz Engine easily controls live video inputs, clips, graphics and still images. Viz Multiplay is configured to control a single Viz Engine or multiple Viz Engines, in both single and dual channel configurations and spanning across multiple graphic channels.

Capture online content

Screencast is an optional tool that allows content from any desktop, including web pages and streaming video, to be displayed on-air in real-time and as stored elements. A journalist defines the area of the screen they wish to be displayed and the content is visualized through Viz Engine and displayed as a SDI or IP signal for use on-air or in a monitor in the studio. Screencast is aspect ratio independent, allowing broadcasters to display content in any size.
