Several template-based graphics systems, including Vizrt’s Content Pilot software (pictured), will help Al Jazeera International create stunning HD graphics with ease.
Al Jazeera International, the 24-hour English-language news and current affairs channel, has selected a high-definition graphics system from Vizrt for its four broadcast centers in Doha (HQ), London, Kuala Lumpur and Washington DC. The company said the deal is the second biggest in its history, with systems to be installed by the end of this year. The channel is set to broadcast globally in early 2006.
The Vizrt real-time 3-D graphics systems will be used for breaking news graphics, maps and template graphics, which are all accessible through an Octopus newsroom system. News producers can access animations and template files created in any of the broadcast centers through constantly mirrored graphics file servers connected to a secure network.
