Super Bowl: CBS Sports to Employ Vizrt HD Graphics
1/31/2007

CBS Sports will use Vizrt HD graphic software for its coverage of Super Bowl XLI at Dolphin Stadium in Miami. Vizrt's HD nonlinear editing (NLE) plug-in for its Viz|Trio CG system is to be used for the broadcast.

With the plug-in, various graphics templates can be used within an NLE system without modification. The Viz|Trio controls and features are designed to allow CBS to change texts, images, 3D objects, scaling and positioning within the NLE, according to Vizrt.

The HD NLE plug-in supports Avid editing software using Avid Visual Extensions. CBS can "stack" arbitrary graphics pages and automatically create seamless transitions, using a single video output channel.

CBS Sports plans to use nearly 50 HD cameras throughout the stadium and an array of other HD-centric equipment, including some new devices, according to TV Technology.   Print Page
