Pixel Power used the IBC conference to show its new Clarity 5000, an SD/HD, multi-format, multichannel character generator system for broadcast and post-production. The Clarity 5000 is used to create graphics for up to two output channels in traditional 4:3 and 16:9, plus all forthcoming screen formats with embedded still-store, video clips, 2-D DVE, real-time 3-D and audio capability.
Each Clarity 5000 channel provides a dedicated preview output with key in addition to program output. These auxiliary outputs can even function as additional program channels with text and still image display.
Clarity 5000’s latest Clarity Version 7 software includes clip capability, DVE, timeline animation and 3-D options. Providing flexible interfaces to new and legacy master control and newsroom automation systems, version 7 software is available in TG, CG and GX versions.
Available in single and dual channel configurations, Clarity 5000 supports SD (525/625) in any aspect ratio, plus all common HD formats including 1080i60, 1080i50, 720p60, 1080sf48, 1080p24 and 1080p25. Single-channel systems are HD/SD switchable, while dual-channel systems can host separate or simultaneous HD and SD.
