Vizrt Supports AWS For Media & Entertainment Initiative

Vizrt announces its support for the AWS for Media & Entertainment initiative from Amazon Web Services (AWS), complimenting Vizrt’s Flexible Access Solution Suites.

Daniel Url, Head of Product Management, Vizrt Group, said, “Vizrt has been building purely software-based solutions since the beginning of the company's history, in line with our SDVS (software defined visual storytelling) philosophy. AWS and the cloud have given our customers a real boost in efficiency in recent years. Our Flexible Access software plans and NDI video-over-IP capabilities, combined with AWS Media Services really help 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 partner.”

By building on AWS, Vizrt says customers can quickly develop new paths to revenue with technologies tailored to media and entertainment organizations, enabled by OpEx driven Flexible Access plans from Vizrt that provide high levels of adaptability and customer control.

The Vizrt Production Control solution suite, available through Flexible Access, uses IP connectivity to achieve instant access to, and seamless interchange with sources from anywhere across the network in real time. Operation of the solution can occur from any compatible desktop or mobile device remotely, even in virtual environments.

A major national U.S. broadcaster currently uses the Live Production Solution within Vizrt Production Control for complete live show production on a regular schedule, which has been extremely useful with staff unable to gather on location. A leading mobile production provider is also said to be using the solution to produce a range of corporate live events with stakeholders located in various locations, and a well-known social media platform is using the solution for the same purpose. In these cases, the solution is deployed using AWS for real-time CPU and processing to produce live event programming.
