Unlimited possibilities

Viz Virtual Studio presents producers with unlimited possibilities to tell stories easily in any size studio. Easily create complex, interactive, 3D virtual sets, augmented reality graphics, and mixed reality presentations for any production.

Storytelling that engages audiences

Virtual sets and augmented reality graphics are a valuable tool to help presenters tell complex stories in a way that is accessible to the average viewer. This increases program loyalty and ratings by leveraging graphic elements - both in front of and behind the presenter. It also allows the presenter to walk through 3D spaces as the camera moves with them and intuitively interact with virtual charts or other types of infographics. 

Indoor and outdoor productions

Viz Virtual Studio allows augmented reality graphics to be used outdoors with the same ease as in the studio. Augmented reality graphics are increasingly being used for outdoor productions including election coverage, and live sports productions. Viz Virtual Studio integrates with any tracking provider allowing complete flexibility for using graphics in any environment. 

Flexible tracking integration

Viz Virtual Studio converts the tracking data coming from any mechanical or image-based tracking system—or a combination of the two—and converts it to camera data that can be used by Viz Engine. Even complex rigs with error compensation, like gyros, can be defined. Viz Virtual Studio can distribute tracking information to several Viz Engines and includes failover functionality for redundant Viz Virtual Studio setups as well as its own time base for systems that may not be running in sync.

The graphics added a new dimension to Televisa’s coverage and helped its on-air presenters tell the election stories more visually, which in turn helped viewers understand the subject matter more clearly.

We’re seeing more and more applications where virtual graphics significantly help a production attract new and loyal viewers

The demand from viewers for broadcasters to create graphics and on-screen analysis of live clips to tell stories more simply, clearly, and quickly, is constantly growing. Video is the most powerful storytelling tool in history – and virtual, augmented and mixed reality are the sharp end of that tool. The Vizrt XR Suite allows broadcasters to extend the visualization of their stories on to any surface or video wall, turning a set, stadium or any other outdoor location into a blank canvas to tell complex stories in a simple and powerful way.
