About ProSet Virtual Set Technology
ProSet provides a powerful dimension to virtual studio productions.
With tight integration between its dedicated hardware, software and
tracking technologies, ProSet provides a realistic environment that
comes to life with rich textures, depth, and perspectives. ProSet is
ideal for all types of productions, including elections, sports,
entertainment and news.
ProSet enables flexibility both for
graphic design modifications as well as operation. During the design and
operation stages, graphic rundowns are created by simply dragging and
dropping the graphic items into a playlist. A local preview, including
both graphics and animation from the relevant studio camera’s
perspective, is available prior to going on air. ProSet includes a set
of tools that addresses the specific needs of virtual studio productions
such as positioning the virtual set graphics in the studio, masking and
more. ProSet also supports two independent alpha channel outputs that
enable the insertion of semitransparent foreground objects into the set.
