Vizrt, a provider of software-defined visual storytelling tools (#SDVS) for media content creators, has announced Vizrt XR (Extended Reality), a solution that allows in-studio and outdoor broadcasters tools to further develop their visual storytelling capabilities and sports analysis, including virtual, augmented, mixed, and extended reality graphics and video wall control. Vizrt XR is one of five software Solution Suites made available exclusively through Flexible Access, Vizrt’s new recurring billing model that provides access to the company’s ecosystem of software-defined visual storytelling tools “while avoiding the need for up front, capital-intensive investments”.

By any measurement, Vizrt XR contains the most powerful visual storytelling tools ever designed, setting the storyteller free from the boundaries of the physical world. We’re making it easier to run immersive, extended reality shows so storytellers can unleash their boundless creativity with speed, efficiency, and high quality to delight fans and viewers alike.”
