Vizrt says Version 2.0 of its Viz Video Hub plug-and-play asset management system provides extended support for archiving through a Tape Robot feature, among other bonuses. That means “huge amounts” of video storage, according to the company.

The Tape Robot support lets broadcasters archive more video assets directly within Viz Video Hub. The Tape Robot can also serve as a long-term storage solution because the hardware exchanges outdated tapes automatically.
The new version is also now integrated with Avid’s NewsCutter video editing software. As with previous versions, Viz Video Hub also supports Apple’s Final Cut Pro NLE software.
“Viz Video Hub 2.0 helps media organizations maximize the value of their media assets by making them easily accessible throughout the organization,” said Vizrt CTO Petter Ole Jakobsen. “The new Avid NLE integration is extremely smooth and the Tape Robot feature greatly increases its storage capacity, making this a system capable of storing huge amounts of video. We are extremely enthusiastic about the possibilities this system creates for our customers. “
Viz Video Hub is a scalable, upgradeable system for IT-based production and archiving. Viz Video Hub 2.0 is directly tied to Viz Ingest Manager, a control interface for managing automatic recording of live feeds, as well as Viz Capture from tape, providing easy control of multiple Viz Video Engine video servers.
With the integration of Viz Video Hub 2.0 and Viz Escenic Content Studio, Web journalists can now search and add video content stored within the Viz Video Hub to their online news stories directly from the Escenic Content Studio interface.
Vizrt will be at Government Video Expo in Washington, Dec. 2-3, at Booth 425.
