Norwegian graphics provider company Vizrt Ltd. announced on Nov 22 that a new deal has been signed worth USD 360,000 for the implementation of broadcast graphics products with BEC Broadcasting Center Co., Ltd. (Channel 3) in Thailand, reports Reuters.
Channel 3 has been a Vizrt customer since 2007 and has a wide range of Vizrt products already in use at its broadcast center. This new purchase is part of an HD upgrade and adds additional Viz Engines for rendering graphics in real-time for on-air use. Also included is Viz Trio, Vizrt’s character generator (CG), which will control the content that is sent to air.
Viz Ticker3D is now added to their on-air graphics systems in each of their studios. This will allow Channel 3 to have live data-driven graphics displayed at all times as a ticker on the screen.
“With the purchase of Viz Media Engine earlier this year and now this new investment, BEC Broadcasting Center Co is fast becoming one of Vizrt’s largest customers in the region”, stated Martin Burkhaulter, Vizrt CEO. “This deal is another example of how Vizrt is a partner in growth for many of our customers, rather than just a supplier of technology. As our clients expand, go for new markets or just are looking to capture greater market share, we are there right with them to provide the tools that enable them to do so.”
