Avid Technology has begun shipping the latest versions of its DekoCast and Thunder on-air graphics systems.
Version 4.0 of the DekoCast system offers new configurations with enhanced HD and crawl capabilities. Version 7.0 of the Thunder system introduces a new HD configuration that combines the capabilities of a video clip and still image store with real-time DVE effects, on-board and remote database support, and graphics functionality.
Avid also announced the availability of its new Thunder Station system, a complete news editing, production server and on-air graphics system. It’s designed to give small-market broadcasters a flexible ingest-to-playout workflow by integrating Avid NewsCutter XP editing tools, Deko graphics production software and Thunder live production servers into a single, cohesive system.
Avid said the Thunder Station workflow empowered broadcasters to cost-effectively create play-to-air news, promotions and sports segments — all with supporting graphics.
