Pinnacle Systems is now begun shipping its Deko3000 HD character generator.
The system allows broadcasters to deliver a complete native HD production for sports, news and other live productions.
While many graphics systems upconvert SD graphics to HD, and as a result introduce flaws to the graphic, Deko3000 HD provides full native 720p and 1080i HD resolutions. Internal clip playback with key matte is standard, providing full design motion without buying a separate video server.
The graphics system offers a real-time Effects palette that lets the operator perform 2-D and 3-D animation on a page, a row, a layer, a word, a character -- even on details within a character to create on-demand shimmers and glows.
Rendered effects playback as designed, even as data is updated on the fly. Motions that affect the graphic – such as size, position, rotation, opacity or 3-D DVEs – are easy to create and adjust automatically to the length of the data.
Graphic artists use the same Deko user interface and workflow whether creating graphics in the 4:3 SD or 16:9 HD format.
The system is available immediately.
