MPEG-2 and H.264 Graphics, Text, and Logo Inserter — LogoSerter™ San Diego, California -- June 20, 2011 -- DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), announced today that they have launched an all revamped H.264 and MPEG-2 version of their broadcast quality graphics, logos, and text inserter.

First introduced at NAB 2011 for MPEG-2 only, DVEO’s LogoSerter™ now inserts graphics, logos, and text anywhere on H.264 or MPEG-2 video content. Two versions are available – DVB-ASI input and output, or IP input and output.

The LogoSerter is a real time software-based system that inserts images and text anywhere on SD or HD live streams with any degree of transparency. It works by decoding the transport stream, overlaying the logo, and transcoding the result. The system enables broadcasters, cable companies, and content to “brand” their video content with images that are not easily removed.

The graphics, logos, and text can be static, blinking, or -– new for this release -– rotating. The system supports 1080i, 720p, and 480i. Logos and graphics can be created in several formats. The control software features easy drag and drop placement to position logo, text, or graphics on the screen. The Windows® based system also features schedule-based logo insertion.

“Smart cable operators are looking to monetize video content via sidebars and crawls,” noted Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. “Our updated LogoSerter inserts scrolling text with programmable fonts and background colors, for crawling messages and emergency alerts. We can also create customized systems to meet customers’ needs.”

Additional new features include a news feed from RSS, an optional clock display, an optional temperature display, and optional transcoding from MPEG-2 to H.264 or vice-versa.
