NewTek Aquired by Vizrt

If you were at the JB&A Pre-NAB Tech Event, you probably got the download on the recent purchase of NewTek by Norwegian company, Vizrt – creator of content production, management and distribution tools for the digital media industry.

This acquisition creates the largest company in the broadcast space that is dedicated to enabling IT based video production. The goal is to make it possible for people to tell their story using video, whether they are a kid in a classroom or a tier-1 broadcaster.

The combined companies emerge as the driving force in the transition to IP video for live production with NDI® and SMPTE 2110, with each serving different needs. The company will deliver flexible end-to-end workflows for all levels of production and software-based products and services for media, sports, entertainment, education, enterprise, and esports.

The combination is a perfect match.

  1. Complementary software-based technology that creates an end-to-end workflow for the growing content creation market.
  2. A dedication to growing the adoption, strength, and accessibility of IP technology for all markets.
  3. A valuable channel network in place, that will benefit from taking a wider portfolio of products to customers.
  4. The new company combines the brilliant minds that invented the NDI protocol with the innovators that invented template-driven real-time graphics. The company will be R&D focused with the vision of providing the software-based video technology that is the foundation of the future of the media industry…

It is professional video editing software that helps you make fixes to flat files. CineXtools allows you to edit new video, audio, and captions without re-exporting. Yes, that’s right. You don’t have to re-QC or re-render the same project again, but focus only on the changes you need to make. Just like working on film!

cineXinsert, the main module, enables overwriting specific data at the essentials’ level. You can set specific in and end points and change only the section between them. Everything else about the video file remains the same.
