Avid has announced that Belgian broadcaster RTL-TVi will use six Avid Deko 3000 systems to revamp the look and feel of all on-screen imagery used during its news broadcasts. Four of the Deko systems will be set up in the control room, with additional systems linked to RTL-TVi’s news automation system. In addition, PostDeko software will be installed in the graphics department, news gallery and production gallery.
RTL-TVi chose Deko because it was HD ready and could import Photoshop and 3dsmax files, the most common tools in the broadcaster’s graphics department.
The Deko systems will integrate with RTL-TVi’s 10 existing Media Composer Adrenaline suites, which will now also be equipped with TitleDeko Pro plug-ins to ensure smooth integration with the editing systems. All of the Avid systems, plus third-party graphic tools like Photoshop, will be connected to a centralized and secure Unity ISIS server, which will act as the shared host for station templates and the graphics library.
