Live productions are becoming more complex using multiple screens in the studio to give presenters more storytelling options. Viz Multiplay gives media organizations a simple way to control studio screen content from a single interface. The easy-to-use and flexible application enables content to be distributed to multiple screens with different configurations.

Using a single interface, content for all screens can be previewed and played-out, from the control room or in the studio from various touchscreen devices. Screens can be different resolutions and aspect ratios for creative freedom of studio configurations. Control of individual screens or triggering of content to multiple screens occurs with a single touch or click.

Viz Multiplay comes with a powerful layout design tool to create unique configurations including video wall displays. These configurations become presets where the positioning of content changes live with transitions and animated effects.

Selecting content and building playlists is very simple with tools to browse media including clips, graphic animations, and images from the Vizrt Viz One media management system. Newsroom journalists can also define content from rundowns for Viz Multiplay using Viz Pilot in their native newsroom control system (NRCS). Playlists are reflected in the Viz Multiplay interface as a series of thumbnails depicting the content of each media item. Operators either trigger playlists as they were created in rundowns or makes on-the-fly rearrangements of the content. 

Viz Multiplay sends content to the Vizrt Viz Engine real-time composition platform. Viz Engine easily controls live video inputs, clips, graphics and still images. Viz Multiplay is configurable to control single or multiple Viz Engine systems supporting multiple graphics channels.

What is Viz Multiplay?

Viz Multiplay revolutionizes studio display management by offering a single interface to control graphics, templates, clips, live feeds, and images, all with seamless transitions. Say goodbye to the hassle of managing multiple content sources – with Viz Multiplay, you can easily switch between sources and create a dynamic display that captivates your audience.

A single operator can control various types of content on screens with any ratio or video wall layout, significantly reducing time and resources for the entire production. The tool offers total flexibility in customizing the video wall layout, editing images, and looping videos – all in a user-friendly web interface.

Building playlists and selecting content is straightforward. It includes tools to browse media such as videos, live ingests and images from Viz One (Vizrt’s media asset management system), as well as graphics and templates from local storage or Vizrt Graphic Hub (the graphics asset database). Newsroom journalists can define the content and create rundowns for Viz Multiplay using Viz Pilot Edge in their native newsroom control system, allowing for the integration of pre-existing media assets. Elements in the playlists are displayed in the Viz Multiplay interface as a series of thumbnails, which operators can either trigger as originally arranged or rearrange on-the-fly.
