Orad to show entry-level graphics rendering platform at IBC
Orad Hi-Tec Systems, a provider of 3-D real-time graphic systems, announced the GBox 2U, a new entry-level, cost-effective video graphics rendering platform. It will debut at IBC.
The GBox 2U is a compact 2U rack-mountable box, which includes both the control PC and the rendering platform in a single box. Similar to the company’s high-end HDVG platform, the GBox 2U platform supports the Maestro HD/SD character generator, and 3DPlay channel branding and auto promo solutions.
The GBox 2U will be bundled with Orad’s 3Designer authoring software, offering a complete graphic preparation suite for graphic designers and artists.
The new turnkey solution enables the playout of real-time 3-D graphics and of multiple video files supporting commonly used formats such as AVI, QuickTime (with alpha), DV, DVC25 and MPEG. GBox 2U also supports one SD/HD video insertion, enabling the user to map a video onto any object in the graphic scene.
