Enhance Your Vizrt Live Production Tools With Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 200 fully featured services from data centers globally. Broadcasters and content creators large and small are using AWS for their live productions to produce more content, better – all while lowering costs, reducing carbon footprint, and becoming more agile and innovate faster.

The Vizrt Live Production Solution is an award-winning cloud-first and NDI®-native live broadcast production solution that provides software-based real-time switching, graphics, and studio automation and enables core and on-demand peripheral studio production, controllable from anywhere in the world. When deployed on AWS, broadcasters enjoy all the capabilities they expect from Vizrt’s industry-leading visual storytelling tools with the additional benefits that the cloud offers.

When deployed using free-to-use Viz Now, the extended Vizrt Live Production Solution (including replay/slow-motion and 3rd party audio mixing and intercom) can be deployed into the AWS cloud in minutes, with no technical knowledge necessary, saving days of IT engineering time.

Vizrt and AWS are better together. Combining Vizrt tools with AWS Media Services really helps our customers exploit the benefits of cloud and remote production workflows. AWS is both an integral part of our cloud strategy and an inspiring R&D sparring collaborator. Ulrich Voigt, Global Head of Product Management, Vizrt Group
