  • Video output: equipped with program and preview output, allowing independent video/key output of each.

Input/Transmission Software

Input function:

  • Equipped with various decorative functions and production-related functions: supports entry of CGs from a script and input and flow following a template. During footage production, can import image data from general graphics software like Adobe Photoshop. All types of decorations can be added to imported data moreover with input software.
  • Easy selection of texts transmission effects by menu: easy operation, just select from a decorations pallet. Multi-layer decorations also possible by changing parameters and combining multiple decorative effects.
  • Varied decoration functions you choose with one action: just select from a decorations pallet. Multi-layer decorations also possible by changing parameters and combining decorative effects.
  • Standard auto-preview function: this lets you instantly check the input texts image on an actual TV monitor. Now it is possible to produce programming while you check CGs color and character position among other factors that are hard to tell with a PC monitor.
  • Import various image files: allows import of general-use image files.
  • Reads text and CSV files: supports text input and flow by saving texts form to a template. Importing text data or CSV files from outside sources lets you create CGs following a template.

  • Standard capture function: this lets you capture the picture from the input line. Captured pictures are registered as texts to a pool folder and can be easily added to programming by drag and drop.
  • Standard simple schedule function: this weekly scheduling function, which comes standard, lets you specify programming to be transmitted on a certain day of the week or a specific date. This gives you easy automatic transmission of programming according to an operating program.
