As part of the new i-ZoneTV Gallery product, broadcasters can create 2-D and 3-D text and graphics to screen applications and games using an Inscriber Inca RTX character generator.
Tamblin, an interactive TV software provider based in London, has selected Leitch’s Inscriber Inca RTX to integrate into its i-ZoneTV product suite.
As part of the new i-ZoneTV Gallery product, which was launched at IBC, broadcasters can create 2-D and 3-D text and graphics to screen applications and games using an Inscriber character generator. Inca RTX allows users to provide up-to-the-minute data in sports, weather and elections, as well as graphics and effects within interactive programs, games shows and shopping channels, or for covering live-on-location events.
It combines six tools, including a broadcast quality character generator, motion effects module, paint system, media browser, event sequencer and Quartz, an application that independently controls multiple logos, clocks bugs and crawls.
Tamblin’s i-ZoneTV Gallery is a text-to-screen system using i-ZoneTV Core to pre-produce interactive services for broadcast graphics systems and then play them out against programming content. Tamblin said i-ZoneTV Gallery appeals to clients wishing to compliment existing red-button activities with interactive services capable of engaging all viewers with mobile phones as the return path.
i-ZoneTV Gallery will allow producers to synchronize interactive content with the television programs while receiving real-time messages from viewers at home. It has SMS to TV templates for votes, quizzes, and competitions.
