VDS speeds HD graphics workflows
Twister UI provides fast access to all of the system’s features.
VDS unveiled a new line of Twister HD Paint Stations designed to improve graphic workflow.
The new systems using BlueFish444 technology offer complete paint, graphics content creation, and HD 1080i or 720P I/O capabilities. With Twister, artists will now have access to VDS' Liberty Paint content creation tools and file transfer/conversion utilities, in addition to all the new features that Twister provides right from within a unified user environment. This includes a full suite of comprehensive paint tools and brushes, unlimited layering capabilities, and image processing and masking tools.
Photoshop plug-ins may be run from within Twister, allowing access to hundreds of image effect libraries. Twister also has integrated map generation capabilities, via the Mapcube Media option.
Broadcasters can create reusable daily templates in HD. Twister has been infused with many broadcast-friendly features such as R/W Photoshop layers and direct connection/file support for most industry-standard devices such as Chyron, Aprisa, Pinnacle, Avid and Quantel. The software supports 3-D paste image and mask layers, video grab to canvas and real-time paint show to video in HD.
