CBS Sports uses Vizrt HD NLE plug-in for Super Bowl
CBS Sports deployed Vizrt's HD nonlinear editing (NLE) plug-in for its Viz|Trio CG system during the live broadcast.
The plug-in allows graphics templates from a Viz|Trio system to be used within an NLE system without modification. All standard Viz|Trio controls and features that allow a user to change text, images, 3-D objects, scaling and positioning are available within the NLE.
The HD NLE plug-in supports Avid's editing software using AVX (Avid Visual Extensions). The plug-in also features Vizrt's "Look Ahead" transition logic. Users can stack arbitrary pages and automatically create seamless transitions, using just one video output channel.
