Viz Story offers media companies a tool that is unparalleled in the industry for easy creation of high-quality branded stories that’s easily consumable on online and social media platforms.

Editors can quickly edit multiple videos on a timeline, add real-time 3D graphics using templates, and choose the format of the video they need. They now have a complete story package that can be sent directly to Facebook or to a VOD platform.
