The Pinnacle Deko 3000 delivered the new graphical look for the 2005 Miss Universe competition, telecast live on NBC on May 30.

"Live production is about being quick--Pinnacle Deko is quickest to air and lets us make adjustments on the fly, even at air time," said Rachel Frimer, vice president of production, Miss Universe Organization.

The Deko line of products is used in live sports events, entertainment programming and in newsrooms. The line is capable of real-time 3D motions, 3D DVE-style transitions, video clips and animating true 3E models.
