Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Many of our readers will not necessarily have come across Vizrt, a public company traded on the Frankfurt Prime Standard and on the Oslo Main List (VIZ, ISIN: IL0010838154) as they have played primarily in the TV space up until now – basically they can be best described as a developer of real-time 3D graphics solutions and video assets management for the broadcast industry.

Anyway here we see them announce a strategic partnership with C-nario that will see C-nario’s digital signage platform extended with various 3D, live and video capabilities.

Bottom line, every single display managed by C-nario’s content creation, management, control and monitoring solution can now be turned into a full 3D interactive kiosk – with Vizrt’s technology, each display can be addressed individually to maximize the impact of the message which means that live content and specific announcements can be displayed as full 3D graphics!

François Laborie, Executive VP Marketing at Vizrt told us “Our core technology is already adopted worldwide to cover elections, news and sports events. Whenever interactive graphics, video content and live data meet we are always there”

He added “With the recent evolutions of the digital signage market, it was only a matter of time before a key player decided to offer a higher level experience to its customers … C-nario has always charted the new territory and is regarded as an innovator in this market, and we are happy that they chose Vizrt to complete their extensive offering”

The Viz Multi Platform Suite technology uses Vizrt’s Viz Engine render technology to render and composite video, sound, graphics and text directly on an end-user device, this of course makes it possible to deliver specific and personalized 3D real-time graphics and video content that match the client platform specifications – IMPORTANTLY this technology is now integrated as an optional plug-in component in C-nario’s software offerings and the user of course benefits from high video quality, highest quality graphics and text for better readability.
