Viz Virtual Studio Go lets you create graphics right out of the box

Viz Virtual Studio Go is an all-in-one AR graphics kit that Vizrt reckons can get you up and running in under an hour.

Here’s a good stat for you. Research conducted by Vizrt reveals that Gen Z, soon to be the dominant global demographic lest us not forget, wants immersive elements within the content it consumes. 73% of Gen Zers agree that real-time data and virtual on-screen graphics add to their viewing experience, and 64% agree that real-time data and virtual on-screen graphics helps them feel more engaged with content.

Vizrt is looking to not only meet that need but also make it more achievable on smaller budgets with Viz Virtual Studio Go. The key here is that it ships pre-configured and ready to go straight out of the box. That means it includes:

  • Vizrt PTZ3 UHD Camera
  • Viz Arc Control surface
  • Pre-installed and configured software and hardware
  • Pre-calibrated camera tracking system including lens file
  • Sample templated AR graphics, plus customizable virtual set scene
  • Viz University “How to get started” tutorial video
  • Vizrt Support

“For our TriCaster users, Viz Virtual Studio Go is an easy and powerful companion for those who want to take their visual storytelling capabilities to the next level,” says Ulrich Voigt, Global Head of Product Management, Vizrt. “Our mission is to provide the high-quality and easy-to-use platform that every professional storyteller can use to produce video for any channel.”

The release blurb talks about “hybrid corporate town halls, or in education, broadcast, visual radio, or other instances…” and there is no doubt that the demand is there. The difficulty has to date been that, once the tech is a given at an affordable price point, learning to use it is another thing entirely.

Free access to Viz University courses to guide users is going to go a long way to easing this process by introducing them to the main use cases and helping them develop operational skills. For example, upon the initial system start-up, users are presented with a step-by-step Quick Start Tutorial to prepare Viz Virtual Studio Go for its first production in less than one hour.

From there on an Operational course does the heavy lifting of explaining rapidly how to use the provided AR graphics and Virtual Set scenes and how to brand your virtual studio.

Viz Virtual Studio Go is available for purchase through certified Vizrt distributors and resellers. No word on pricing as yet, but we’ve pinged Viz and will let you know what they say asap.
