ARISE News chooses Ventuz software3 July 2013
24-hour global TV news network ARISE has chosen to use Ventuz graphics software. The software is being used for the company’s broadcast newsroom solution including realtime 2D/3D graphics, HD video walls and interactive in-studio applications.
London-based Spotted Zebra led the system design and integration, having previously worked for the BBC, CNBC, Bloomberg and TRT. The newsroom solution for ARISE included touchscreen interactivity, on-air graphics, live video feeds and data-driven weather and financial graphics using the Ventuz software suite running on VBox graphics hardware.
At ARISE studios in London and New York, Ventuz software controls the interactive screen elements via a contact-free, multi-touch infrared laser system. It also controls the video wall backdrop, and is responsible for real-time rendering and compositing, as well as real-time graphics, full frame graphics for weather, animated, data-driven or interactive business graphics and live video.
Ventuz is also used to keep graphics updated in ARISE’s studios across the globe. Using the software, one studio can create graphics or video wall content and have that content mirrored to the other news studios, to integrate live broadcasts.
