Vizrt Mosart Powers New MediaCorp Singapore Facility

Singapore’s media company, MediaCorp, is moving to a new broadcast and production campus that includes two news production studios. The facilities will be powered and fully automated with Vizrt technology.

Singapore’s MediaCorp has installed new studio automation solutions from Vizrt. The new Viz Mosart systems are the first to be installed in Southeast Asia. They complement the other Vizrt production products currently used in MediaCorp’s existing facilities including the Viz Engine real-time compositing engine and Viz Pilot template-based graphics system. The Viz Mosart software solution has been optimized to control each individual piece of control room technology directly to ensure a seamless production workflow.

MediaCorp has also upgraded much of its existing Vizrt production graphics platforms. The design and the implementation of the new technology and production systems is being supervised and executed by local systems integrator Qvest Media.

Norraine Yusof, senior vice president, campus technology development at MediaCorp said the choice to use Viz Mosart was to enable the full automation of the two new production control rooms and news studios on the new campus. “Moving to our new facilities is a major milestone for MediaCorp and we wanted to integrate the best-of-breed technology to make it a success. There’s continuity with Vizrt which has been a long-time technology partner and we know its solutions are the best choice for us as we undergo the next big step for the company.”

Viz Mosart will be integrated into the new facility’s Vizrt graphics systems which is comprised of an Octopus Octopus newsroom computer system, Snell Kahuna vision mixers, EVS playout servers and twinned Shotoku Shotoku robotic camera pedestals on the studio floor. MediaCorp already has an extensive range of Vizrt equipment including Viz Pilot which will be integrated to the Octopus NRCS. It also has dedicated workstations running Viz Artist, Viz World, the Vizrt Social TV solution and Viz Ticker.

MediaCorp also purchased two Viz Virtual Studio systems and a touchscreen system. They were used during news coverage of the recent 28th South East Asian Games held in Singapore earlier this year. The systems will be integrated into the new MediaCorp studios allowing producers to experiment with new studio environments and creative graphics applications.
