Vizrt has added an extended reality package to its recently launched Flexible Access product offering.
Vizrt XR is aimed at both in-studio and outside broadcast productions and includes virtual, augmented, mixed, and extended reality graphics and video wall control.
According to the company, the new package provides “a range of capabilities allowing broadcasters to extend the visualisation of their stories to tell them better”.
“Video or virtual studio walls and floors as well as the pitch and stands within sports arenas or any other outdoor environment become blank canvasses allowing for interaction between presenters and graphics objects on scales ranging from finely detailed to gargantuan,” said Vizrt.
Elements that scale to meet customer needs within Vizrt XR include the following:
Vizrt XR Set which can be used for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor productions, augmented reality (AR), virtual set, and videowall tools work within one workflow. The studio or any other location can be reset from one show to the next in a matter of minutes.
Vizrt XR Venue employs camera tracking and AI keying technology to create hyper-real, precise graphics and enable broadcasters to improve sports coverage with minimal efforts.
Vizrt XR Playbook includes virtual views, 3D camera flights and analysis tools let the presenter break down the match interactively in the studio, delivering insights on a touchscreen or virtually inserted in the action on the pitch.
