KWCH, KSCW Take Local News HD with Vizrt Graphics

Sunflower Broadcasting’s Wichita, KS, CBS affiliate KWCH and The CW affiliate KSCW began broadcasting local news in HD with Vizrt software powering all of the graphics. The two stations share a facility, where four Viz Engine real-time renderers power the graphics created in Vizrt Artist 2.8, Object Store, Content Pilot, Template Wizard, and Template Manager 5.1.

The stations also use Viz Curious Maps, along with Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Adobe After Effects CS3. The new systems are used for lower-third, full-screen, and opening graphics, as well as interstitials.

California-based Reality Check Studios installed and integrated the graphics systems.
