Vizrt has launched a free edition of its Viz Artist 4.2 real-time 3D graphics design tool, as well as a new Viz Artist in Residence program that initiates the search for “the world’s greatest Viz Artist designer.”

Vizrt’s software ecosystem for graphics is used by nearly every major media organization in the world including CNN, CBS, NBC, Fox, Sky UK, Al Jazeera, ZDF, Media Corp, and many more. Within these Vizrt broadcast workflows, using Viz Artist is an essential skill. Viz Artist 4.2 works together with Viz Engine to deliver photorealistic and data-driven real-time graphics to the entire live broadcast ecosystem.
