Preview Server

Preview Server is used in situations where Viz Engine must provide frames for snapshot or thumbnail generation. The Preview Server is used by several Viz products such as Viz Trio, Viz Multichannel and Viz Content Pilot Newsroom Component to fetch previews of overlay graphics for the Timeline Editor.

Preview Server can manage a pool of Viz Engines. Clients can query it for a Viz Engine that matches a specific video mode. The Preview Server provides load balancing, video mode matching and can be used to create a redundant renderer pool.
