  • An enhanced “Crawl Animation” feature set enables stations to reinforce their brands by adding animated logos, clips and live video within informational crawl graphics.
  • A toolset for collecting, managing and delivering real-time election data.

Thunder Version 7.0 features include:

  • A Thunder HD model that delivers multiple channels of broadcast-quality HD video with native 720p and 1080i MXF file format.
  • The ability to link a video clip with a still graphic, creating associations between graphics and video clips so that both media files can be recalled efficiently as a single element.
