Vizrt updates Viz/3G Graphics at IBC2006
At IBC, Vizrt will issue a new release of Viz|3G, its platform for delivering real-time graphics and video content to mobile devices.
New features include an improved graphical user interface with a dynamic matrix layout; video streaming support from the new MPEG-21-controlled mobile streaming server and encoding platform; RSS data support for tickers and other similar applications; commercial presentation integration and a back-office system for user and content management.
Viz|3G is based on Vizrt's Viz|Engine renderer and Adactus’ MPEG-21 standards-based multimedia delivery platform. Norwegian developer Adactus is now owned in part by Vizrt.
Vizrt also plans to show that graphics can be produced on its Viz|Trio graphics workstation and distributed via the Viz|3G server to mobile phones. The company will demonstrate a prototype of a lightweight Viz|Engine renderer running on a cell phone. It will provide real-time, hardware-accelerated graphics on the client and opportunity for the customization, localization and personalization of targeted advertising placements.
