Clarity 3D Version 10.0 ( Build 00288 )
Clarity™ products are ideal for live graphics applications in the studio, mobile OB trucks and other venues. With full real-time preview during creation, the Clarity™ family offers the ultimate solution for graphics preparation and playout.
IN THE STUDIO
For news and live studio events, such as quizzes and game shows, sophisticated and highly dynamic 3D graphics are a key ingredient. A powerful 3D creation interface and toolset allows complex data driven 3D animations with realistic lighting and effects to be easily created. 3D objects in a variety of file formats can be imported and live sources mapped onto surfaces. Our client-server solution integrates our graphics systems with MOS newsroom automation systems including Avid iNews® and AP ENPS®.
Automated Transition Logic (ATL) enables complex animation sequences to be created using powerful in-template scripting, without the need to create many complex interlinked timelines.
AT THE GAME
For sporting events, creating compelling, informative and up-to-the minute visual information is at the heart of spectator satisfaction. The Clarity™ API enables interfacing to live event data and statistics to create leader boards, results tickers and team profiles. Relevant data driven graphics including animated clocks and timers can be produced for both in-venue signage and for broadcast transmission.
Operators may choose to control the playout from a dedicated interface created using ToolboxTM or use the built-in Playout Controls window. This window allows the playout sequence of template pages and triggering of animation sequences to be controlled by direct entry of the page number on the keyboard or via a dedicated custom keypad when limited space is available.
IN THE OB TRUCK
Increasing demand for live content is being met by growing numbers of sophisticated OB trucks. To meet viewer expectations and to avoid incurring additional production costs every facet - including the graphics - must be of the highest quality. Clarity™ systems offer ‘best of breed’ graphics and are available in a compact form factor to maximise performance and minimise space. The new, high performance cooling system significantly reduces noise, and its integrated display panel provides clear visibility of status - both highly useful in the confines of a typical OB truck.
