Vizrt Releases VizSocial

VizSocial is a cloud-based subscription service allowing editorial staff to moderate and curate social media content for broadcast.

Delivered in collaboration with audience engagement specialists Never.no, Viz Social connects directly with data fields in popular Vizrt graphics tools, allowing broadcasters to tell stories driven by social media content, curated on the fly. Real-time graphics workflows are enhanced by Viz Social.

“Broadcasters today need tools that make it easier to work efficiently with social media content that provides access to breaking news, as it frequently does,” says Helen Blackburn, Viz Social product manager at Vizrt Group. “Viz Social combines leading edge mapping of collected social media content from Never.no with the most flexible and visually compelling graphics platform in the world, so torrents of social media content can be tamed and used to tell stories that are clear, concise, and up to the minute.”

Viz Social lets customers search and monitor conversations on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and RSS feeds in order to quickly track and respond to content as it develops in the online sphere. Filters and moderating techniques can be applied to send the most relevant and compelling content to air through content mapped directly to Vizrt scenes and tools. There are inline compliance tools in Viz Social.

Interactive audience engagement tools allow immersive conversations to play out with the audience across primary and secondary screens in real-time.

“This new partnership integrates our next-level social media monitoring, search and aggregation services, and audience interaction capabilities with the raw data visualization power of Vizrt’s real-time graphics platform. By collecting and visualizing social media and live interactive content, Viz Social engages audiences in ways they’ve never experienced before,” says Scott Davies, CEO at Never.no.
