Vizrt celebrates 10 years of Viz University with mission to upskill the next generation of content creators

For a decade, the team has created valuable content to empower customers, nurture new talent, and grow the Vizrt community, paving the way for the future of content creators. 

Vizrt, the leader in real-time graphics and live production solutions for content creators, celebrates the 10-year anniversary of Viz University. During a remarkable decade, Viz University, a learning platform that offers customers, partners and freelancers a library of product and technology courses, has provided training, upskilling, and certification for thousands of customers and users from the individual to the world’s biggest broadcast organizations.  

“Viz University has been invaluable in onboarding our new Vizrt tool users. Its courses cater to both beginners and advanced users, making it an efficient and effective way to get new staff up to speed in a matter of days. The ‘Introduction to TV production’ course has been particularly popular among our new hires,” states Jan-Philipp Müller, GF Design, ZDF, German public broadcaster.

What do the next 10 years bring? 

In the past 10 years, Viz University has seen 5,000 freelancers and countless customers complete over 10,000 courses. But what do the next 10 years look like? With a lack of specific skilled talent across the tech industry, including media technology and live production, the Viz University team forms a mission to upskill the next generation of content creators and develop a network of certified Vizrt partners.  

“The next five years are going to see a significant shift in the workforce landscape as we see a great crew change as seasoned industry experts retire. We are having frequent conversations with customers and partners about the need to increase the number of freelancers, designers, operators, and to support in upskilling their workforces and new hires. If we aren’t actively supporting the pipeline of talent into the industry, we aren’t answering our customers’ challenges,” shares Griet Johannsen, Head of Training and Certification at Vizrt. 

Growing partnerships, and experts, globally  

Viz University is also focused on expanding its training and certification program for Vizrt partners. With learning paths for live production in the cloud, live production sports, and real-time graphics, Viz University brings Vizrt´s top technologies to a wider range of users, especially as the traditional industries of broadcast and proAV converge.  

Another priority for Viz University is launching additional freelance courses for designers, operators, and technical directors to gain knowledge and certification of new Vizrt software. With access to certified Vizrt professionals, customers have their choice of experts to better support the success of their productions.  

More information about the university initiatives, and new certification programs will be released soon.
