How do you make two people thousands of kilometers apart appear side-by-side in a virtual studio instantaneously? Teleportation technology. While it may sound like science fiction, Vizrt regularly brings people together from separate locations across the globe with help from a pair of Matrox® Monarch EDGE 4K/multi-HD encoder and decoder devices when producing its own VizrTV online series.
The Monarch EDGE encoder and decoder pair alongside Vizrt’s software-defined visual storytelling tools for broadcasters allowed Vizrt to ‘teleport’ resident experts Chris Black, Vizrt’s Norway-based Head of Brand and Content Team, and Gerhard Lang, Vizrt’s Austria-based Chief Technology Officer into a virtual studio in Vomp, Austria – along with guest experts from anywhere in the world. With the ability to seamlessly execute both remote and cloud-based productions during different episodes, the Monarch EDGE has become Vizrt’s go-to broadcast-quality encoding and decoding appliances for delivering low-latency, strikingly-realistic virtual interviews.
