   Vizrt Ltd. : Vizrt signs USD 1.5 million deal with a North American News
               Channel upgrading from tape based to digital MAM

Bergen, Norway, February 04, 2013. Vizrt Ltd. (Oslo Main List: VIZ)

Vizrt has signed a deal worth USD 1.5 million for media asset management (MAM)
products with an international News Channel in North America. The  broadcaster 
has been a Vizrt customer for many  years and the new investment will  replace 
existing tape-based storage systems.

Viz Media Engine, Vizrt's complete asset management system (MAM), will be  the 
core of a new MAM infrastructure for the broadcaster. All archival storage  is 
being moved to a digital format for easy reference and all new content will be
ingested utilizing Viz Dart, Vizrt's digital asset recorder. Transcoding tools
in the Viz Media Engine will convert file formats as needed when  transferring 
files to  other  storage systems  throughout  the broadcaster's  other  global 
offices.

Viz Content Pilot, Vizrt's template-based content and control application will
give journalists access  to graphic  templates and  video content  in the  Viz 
Media Engine from within their newsroom control system (NRCS).

In the  Control Room  the  MAM system  is  integrated with  Vizrt's  broadcast 
graphics systems included  in the  purchase. This includes  Viz Trio,  Vizrt's 
real-time 3D character generator (CG). Playlists in Viz Trio will include both
video and  graphic content  that will  be triggered  in real-time  and  played 
through multiple Viz Engines with full video playback capability.

"This new  purchases will  bolster  an already  impressive MAM  and  broadcast 
graphics installation at  this TV  station," stated  Martin Burkhalter,  Vizrt 
CEO. "Vizrt's commitment to a complete end-to-end graphics and video  solution 
is what  allows  every broadcaster,  from  the  local level  to  major  global 
networks, to have easy to use systems for controlling all of their content and
thereby improving their workflow in terms of speed and efficiency."
