NewBlue Inc., a leading provider of production-proven video special effects, transitions and titling technology, today announced Titler Live Broadcast, a new affordable, high-quality, 3D, animated titling solution for live production. Titler Live Broadcast supports popular production systems such as NewTek Tricaster, Telestream Wirecast, Blackmagic ATEM, Roland Switchers, and vMIX Go. Users of NewTek’s NDI (Network Device Interface) can stream graphics and text on up to 16 independent channels all from a single Mac or Windows computer.
In a market where titling and graphics solutions come at a premium, NewBlue’s Titler Live Broadcast is a cost effective, yet powerful solution. The titling graphics engine powering Titler Live is built on NewBlue’s platform that also drives successful postproduction applications such as Titler Pro, currently shipping with Avid Media Composer and Grass Valley Edius.
Frequently, segments of a broadcast show are extracted for use in a post-produced program. Proprietary, integrated titling systems for live broadcasts, rarely —if ever— offer a way to bring the graphics over to an NLE-based postproduction workflow. This leads to the painfully inefficient re-creation of titles in an attempt to avoid mismatched styles across mediums. NewBlue’s platform approach means that titles which have aired live can also be instantly matched and modified in postproduction with the popular Titler Pro plugin available for all major editing applications.
“Titler Live Broadcast represents our most powerful titling and graphics offering yet,” explains Todor Fay, CEO of NewBlue. “Real-time, high-quality 3D graphics over 16 channels was unheard of before, but thanks to new protocols like NewTek’s NDI, we’ve unlocked a whole new level of price, performance, and ease of use.”
Titler Live Broadcast is packed with features and templates specifically for live production workflows. A unique scoreboard module not only controls scoring, game clocks and other fields but also live data updates through integration with SportzCast, DataLink and Statcrew for real-time score updates.
“NewBlue Titler Live Broadcast demonstrates the power of NewTek’s NDI standard for real-time IP driven workflows,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “NewBlue Titler Live Broadcast is highly respected
both at NewTek and within the industry and we are confident that IP video workflows such as these will revolutionize live video.”
