Crystal Vision to highlight new chromakeyers at CABSAT 2008
Crystal Vision will showcase its latest Safire HD 2 and Safire SD 2 chromakeyers live during CABSAT 2008, March 4-6, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center, in the United Arab Emirates.
An enhanced version of the original Safire HD, the new Safire HD 2 includes processing to allow tolerance of difficult colors in the foreground. With the ability to work with transparent and reflective objects, Safire HD 2 includes fine adjustments for optimized edges, sophisticated shadow processing, key shrink, masks, linear keying, mix and wipes. It also works with SD sources.
Safire SD 2 chromakeyer provides an easy upgrade path to HD. Safire SD 2 uses the same hardware platform as Safire HD 2, complete with the new processing features, but with its operation restricted to SD. Exchange of the module’s daughter board with a new one from Crystal Vision completes the upgrade.
