Vizrt to show new 3-D map-making software

Vizrt will unveil updates to its Viz Curious Maps Clients 3-D mapping software — Version 8.0 — at NAB2008.

Viz Curious Maps is a template-based software solution that enables users to create branded maps and geographic animations. It can be extended to a server edition that can provide real-time, branded map imagery to several clients embedded within Vizrt’s control applications.

Templates created within Viz Curious Maps can be dynamically accessed through Viz Trio character generation software and Viz Content Pilot, creating an easy-to-use workflow for journalists. In this new version, Viz Curious Maps acts as both a creation tool and a server platform. Maps or templates first prepared using Viz Curious Maps and Viz Artist design software are stored within a Viz Curious Maps server that can be accessed by any number of users throughout an organization.

The enhancements within Viz Curious Maps, Version 8, greatly strengthen connectivity between programs through the Viz Curious Maps server. Users can seamlessly create branded, animated maps and add them to graphic templates or directly to a 3-D scene.
