BUG.tv relies on Bluefish444 card for ‘Sunday Night Football’
Workflow and automation innovator BUG.tv has incorporated Bluefish444's HD|Fury card in its CLASS-BUG HD video server system being used in the broadcast of “NFL Sunday Night Football on NBC” games.
Earlier this year, NBC used the CLASS-BUG HD system with HD|Fury for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. Based on the system’s performance during the Winter Games, with more than 3000 playouts, NBC decided to include the CLASS-BUG HD in its production workflow for “NFL Sunday Night Football on NBC.” Motion graphics can be created or edited at the last moment then played back to air through the HD|Fury video card from Bluefish444.
CLASS-BUG HD is a motion graphics server aimed at on-air presentation designed for applications requiring integration with an external keyer, such as a master control switcher.
