STREAMLINES GRAPHICS CREATION WITH AUTOMATED DATABASE INTEGRATION
Fluent Rapid CG is an option for Flint, Mica, or Granite integrated production switchers and provides an advanced tool for creating data-instensive CG graphics with automated database integration.
Fluent Rapid CG 3 offers operators the ability to output 2 channels, connect to external databases, connect to scoreboards and integrate with news automation software. Fluent Rapid CG LT is also available, a light version that can access RSS, Twitter Feeds and Action buttons.
Fluent Rapid CG software automatically integrates cloud-based content and data directly to on-air graphics. Simply drag and drop an external database into Rapid CG, link it to a template created in Inscriber CG, and the information is automatically updated in specific fields within the template – no re-keying of data necessary. Because Rapid CG operates within specific fields, the operator can only change the data, not the templates. Data can include text and graphics, so photos can be changed automatically as well. RSS feeds can also be used to update weather and other information from the Web automatically.
The automated process can be applied to a number of templates simultaneously. For example, if a sporting event features the score on a full screen image and a small scoreboard positioned in the corner of the screen during the game, the information can be changed once but applied to both graphics.
Fluent Rapid CG LT lets the audience become part of the production by connecting to Twitter and other cloud-based data sources. RSS, clocks and weather feeds can flow directly to on-air graphics, and Tweets can flow directly to air or be pre-screened with a built-in management system. Plus action buttons can now trigger multiple tags.
Create custom action buttons to easily add incremental graphics, if there is no automated database. For example, an action button can be designed to add six points to the score if a football team scores a touchdown, which makes data input easier and eliminates mathematical errors. Other information can also be added such as clocks, timers or dates.
Rapid CG is ideal for sports, elections, and other data intensive productions that feature a lot of graphics that change throughout the show. Link them to easy to use graphic templates and enjoy the confidence of controlled and automated updates flowing live on-air.
