KCTV5 adds Viz graphics renderers, Trio CG for HD newscasts

KCTV5, the CBS affiliate in Fairway, KS, serving the Kansas City, MO, and KS, market, recently began broadcasting the station’s nightly newscasts in HD with all graphics powered by Vizrt software.

Three Viz Engine real-time renderers installed in the station’s control room power the graphics created by a Viz Trio 2-D/3-D character generator. The graphics are used for all the station’s lower-thirds, full-screen and opening graphics, as well as interstitials. KCTV5 also employs Vizrt software for sports graphics production during broadcast of Kansas City Chiefs football games and for other special live events.

In addition to basic CG functionality, a set of advanced features supply the station’s graphics operator with complex graphic and operational abilities. Viz Trio enables connectivity to multiple newsroom systems and integration with nonlinear editing systems.
