Engine Connect is an app designed for broadcasters to control Vizrt content from an iPad using multi-touch capabilities. As the use of presenter-controller graphics for TV is rapidly increasing, Engine Connect brings all the rendering power of Viz Engine™ to an iPad without sacrificing the quality of the rich media.

“The low latency between the creation of a frame on Viz Engine and it being displayed on the iPad coupled with a frame rate of up to 30fps defines Splashtop as the only solution for interactive Viz scenes on the iPad. Interactivity for news, sports and weather will reach a new level with Engine Connect!” -- Gerhard Lang, Chief Engineering Officer of Vizrt

Targeted for news, weather, and sports broadcasts in the studio, Engine Connect enables presenters to connect to and control interactive real-time animations and graphics on Viz Engine, a state-of-the-art real-time renderer for broadcasting. It complements Viz Engine by extending its powerful feature set to the iPad, such as multi-touch, scene selection, full control of in-scene animation and live-streamed video updates.

Engine Connect takes advantage of the award-winning Splashtop Remote technology to stream high-quality video and audio content from your computer, and allow you to interact with powerful desktop applications.

Engine Connect requires an existing Vizrt infrastructure and is not a standalone product.
