Vizrt Group and NDI Win Big at 2021 NAB Product of the Year Awards

Taking home four awards across Vizrt Group’s three brands, NDI, NewTek, and Vizrt, the recognition from this year’s NAB Product of the Year Awards showcases the strength of the Group’s software-defined visual storytelling technology.

The awards program, in its third year, recognizes significant and promising new products and technologies that were set to be displayed for the first time at the canceled NAB Show 2021. Instead, the award ceremony was held virtually during NAB Amplify, a digital platform for the industry to continually connect, and will be available to watch on-demand later this week.

“The past 18 months of challenges have brought video storytelling, especially the need for flexible IP video tools, to the forefront. The NDI team’s mission is to help more people create more content, by supporting them with a standardized high quality, low latency platform. NDI 5 advances our mission by making it possible for the whole world to be an NDI-connected studio. NDI 5 strengthens the capabilities of every video storyteller from the individual at home to churches, schools, governments, and broadcasters,” comments Michael Namatinia, president, NDI, Vizrt Group.

“This acknowledgment from NAB’s 2021 Product of the Year Awards, and its panel of judges, highlights our commitment and dedication to bringing best of breed, award-winning solutions to our partners, customers, and users worldwide.”

The awards won by NDI, NewTek, and Vizrt include:

IT Networking/Infrastructure and Security: NDI 5

NDI 5 is a true revolution in video storytelling that turns the whole world into a studio. NDI 5 was awarded for its innovation by enabling creatives, for the first time in history, to connect to any device, in any location, anywhere in the world, and share live, high quality, low latency video.

Asset Management, Automation, Playout: NewTek: 3Play® 3P2

NewTek’s unmatched sports replay solution, 3Play 3P2®, won for its unparalleled connectivity, efficiency, and enhanced operator-centric workflow that breaks the play down to immerse audiences deeper into the game in real-time and 4K resolution.

Graphics, Editing, VFX, Switchers: Vizrt: Vizrt XR Set — Viz Engine 4.3 and Unreal Engine

Extended reality and virtual sets are an everyday occurrence in creative output. With the latest update to Vizrt’s XR Set, combining the power of Viz Engine and the creative freedom of Unreal Engine, creatives have more choice, with less effort and complexity without compromising quality to bring the most engaging graphics to audiences. This recognition demonstrates the exceptional standard of Vizrt graphics.

Remote Production: Vizrt: Vizrt Live Production in the Cloud

More so now than ever, content is coupled with the need for flexibility in deployment, production, and delivery. Vizrt’s Live Production in the Cloud Solution offers an unmatched end-to-end live production workflow from source to delivery to empower the modern storyteller. As it’s also NDI® 5 native, it’s the first production system built that leverages the transformative technology – both of which are now award-winning.

“As a company, our mission has always been to allow anyone with a story to be able to tell it. We strive not just to make the next versions of our products but more importantly how we can innovate and challenge the status quo as we do this. I am so proud to be part of the most amazing R&D team in the industry who are helping push the software-based future of live video,” adds Dr. Andrew Cross, president of product development, Vizrt Group.
