VDS to debut ProStor still and clip system
VDS will unveil its new ProStor still and clip store system at NAB2008. Both SD and HD switchable, the system provides comprehensive organizational and database management tools in an easy to operate multichannel playout device.
Stills, clips and audio files can be easily combined in scenes that can be added to playlists with a simple drag and drop. The stills can be created from a wide range of easily imported standard graphics formats. Search and sorting tools maximize efficiency and accessibility to graphics assets. The ProStor features user-selectable multiple playlist creation for playout in HD or SD. Control can be manual or through multiple external controls.
ProStor is now fully integrated with VDS’ Twister HD PaintStation, providing a complete graphics creation, templating and playout solution. ProStor is available as one- or two-channel 32-bit configurations, each channel outputting video and key. The system can simultaneously run graphics, clips, audio files and scenes on the same video channel, thus reducing cost while increasing functionality.
An offline version of ProStor is also available and will run on a standard PC. This is a low-cost option to manage the database and create and edit playlists. The ProStor networked operation allows collaborative, simultaneous work of multiple users on a centralized database.
