Pinnacle Systems intros ThunderMX still and clip server
South Pinnacle Systems' ThunderMX live production server
Pinnacle has introduced its ThunderMX production server — a still store with clip support option designed for fast-paced, live productions.
ThunderMX is scalable from one to three record/playback channels — each with still and key. With the added clip option, each channel supports video, key and eight channels of embedded audio in addition to the stills.
The playback and effects system of ThunderMX is driven by Pinnacle’s Inflexion engine, the same object-based video processing software behind the company’s newest Deko character generators. Inflexion supports clip record and playback, real-time effects generation and playback of graphics.
Every ThunderMX channel supports simultaneous fill and key. It also features an overlay for stills or animated logos. Using the ThunderMX overlay, items such as moving logos can be resized and positioned anywhere on the screen without using an additional channel on the server or production mixer.
