VIZRT Viz Anchor

Controlling graphics from the palm of your hand
Viz Anchor is a Vizrt app targeted at news, sports and weather presenters in the studio. The app runs natively on Apple’s iPad and allows users to control newsroom playlists, including video and graphics, directly from the iPad.

Our award-winning control app empowers your on-air talent to do what they do best: present content in a compelling way, free from a range of common newsroom restrictions. It provides a subset of the functionality of Vizrt’s other control applications, such as Viz Pilot and Viz Trio, enabling the presenter to have an updated version of the playlist available in the palm of his or her hand - without going through the control room.

Viz Anchor integrates seamlessly with existing Vizrt workflows. Once the latest rundown is updated, the presenter may easily run graphics directly on-air, or for instance, start and stop animations on a Video Wall or in a Viz Virtual Studio. Video clips and graphics scenes can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the studio. This allows for a more dynamic presentation with a smooth and organic flow.
