Future-proof compact control room

Viz Opus gives you efficient studio automation workflows in a compact format – allowing any media company to create great live production values and return on investment.

Bring any content to life with this powerful live production system. Combining Vizrt’s studio automation workflow and the Viz Engine graphic engine and video playback server, Viz Opus enables world-class production quality, error-free live content and great consistency. A simple, story focused, user interface allows the director to operate all aspects of the live production from a single console. 

Viz Opus is optimised for small to mid-sized production environments and lowers the threshold for going live. A strong backend, together with an easy-to-operate user interface, gives the director all necessary information in a single view, allowing anyone to create live content where storytelling is in focus. 


A standard Viz Opus configuration starts with a single workstation capable of doing vision mixing, video server playout, live Vizrt graphics, and audio mixing. The small form factor lets Viz Opus fit perfectly in any space, with a modern, software based architecture.

Get an amazing on-air look with the rendering power of Viz Engine which allows advanced realtime 3D animated transition effects, DVE boxes and full-frame graphics.

Vizrt’s story planning tool ‘Showmaker’ is included in every Viz Opus package. ‘Showmaker’ is a rundown tool that is tailored for creating rundowns for studio automation, and removes the dependency on an newsroom computer system.

Workflow diagram

Viz Opus supports both live and recorded content as well as Vizrt graphics assets. The user interface allows the director to take any of these assets on-air based on the rundown from a newsroom computer system or ‘Showmaker’ or with a keyboard hotkey. The final live production output will then be outputted through SDI.
