e-mediavision offers HD telestrator
e-mediavision.com has introduced the Point-HD V3, an HD broadcast telestrator for on-air sports commentators.
The system allows presenters to annotate, draw, place and move animated graphics over live video, using one or more touch-screen monitors. The user interface may be customized to suit individual preferences, allowing the non-technical presenter to use the tools live on air with little or no training.
Point-HD allows customized graphics to be imported and used within the presenter's interface, thus enabling any program to have its own unique look and feel. The device supports the common Targa graphic file format, which allows a common library of TV station graphics to be reused with presentations.
Point-HD can be used for both studio and outside broadcast productions and set up quickly with minimum technical engineering resources. Supporting both SD and HD formats, the system provides for SDI input and provides SDI key and fill or graphics keyed over video outputs.
The telestrator's outputs are genlocked to the SDI input, which reduces cable requirements for reference signal input and saves on engineering time by not having to time the output signals at the vision mixer/switcher.
