Vizrt integrates Curious World Maps with Microsoft Virtual Earth
Vizrt has integrated its Viz|Curious World Maps software with: Viz|Artist graphics design tool, Viz|Trio real-time CG, Viz|Content Pilot content management and control software, and the Viz|Weather real-time broadcast weather solution.
Following its 2005 acquisition of Curious Software, Vizrt offers a new map server, which serves as an Active X plug-in for Viz|Artist, Viz|Content Pilot, Viz|Trio and Viz|Weather. The map server bridges the Vizrt graphics applications with Viz|Curious World Maps.
Vizrt recently demonstrated a newly developed integration between Viz|Curious World Maps and Microsoft’s Virtual Earth platform, which lets broadcasters use imagery products stored on Microsoft’s Virtual Earth platform with the same control they are accustomed to with Viz|Curious World Maps.
Vizrt also recently introduced version 7.0 of Viz|Curious World Maps, which adds the latest update to the map database from Collins Bartholomew.
