Viz Vectar Plus - part of the Vizrt Live Production Solution.
Advanced Systems Group (ASG) has allied with Vizrt to integrate the Viz Vectar Plus software-based live production switcher into ASG’s Virtual Production Control Room. It will do so using Vizrt’s NDI video-over-IP protocol. NDI is also a component in the VPCR ecosystem.
“NDI quickly established itself as the de facto standard for IP-based live video production, and it’s a critical element of the Virtual Production Control Room infrastructure,” said Dave Van Hoy, president of ASG. “Vizrt has also done an excellent job adapting its existing technology for cloud-based production, and Viz Vectar Plus is a welcome addition to the Virtual Production Control Room.”
Part of the Vizrt Live Production Solution, Viz Vectar Plus features direct support for videoconferencing call applications, web browsers, and multiple streaming protocols. Its resolution, frame rate, and aspect ratio independence provide support for multiple outputs to accommodate programming for various device types.
“Real-time cloud production is finally a reality, and software-based production tools are more advanced than ever,” added Pino Barile, sales manager, Vizrt. “The flexibility of Viz Vectar Plus helps content creators include a variety of sources into a single production environment without compromise. We’re proud to be a part of ASG’s collaborative, off-prem solution.”
Instead of an all-in-one service with limited options, ASG’s VPCR is a multi-vendor control room solution. “The VPCR platform is supported by more than two dozen companies, with multiple product options in almost every control room position,” says Hoy. “The VPCR remote production service is powered by Google Cloud for real-time, broadcast-quality coverage of live events and other programming. No on-prem services are required to deliver secure, cost-effective content. Not only does the system support major videoconferencing applications with multiple live participants, productions can include video switching effects, multi-channel audio, graphics, animations, captions, and more.”
