Background Combiner and Restyling Tools
Your graphics artist will appreciate the ability to create 32-bit transparent logos and/or backgrounds, using the standard video capture feature. Once images are captured they are available on the network so they can be shared with other workstations in the Graphics department. Software tools are provided to convert pairs of 24bit graphics files and create valid 32bit logos. Any SDI source connected to the Logo Matic video input can provide the fill and key required. The Background Combiner will match them together to create a 32 bit graphics file ready to be used as a logo or background. The Restyling Tools complement the combiner with graphics processing, painting and editing capability.
Superb Picture Quality
The architecture of Logo Matic is an uncompressed 4:2:2:4 signal path. Playback of all logos is done using a high performance graphics card. Picture and key outputs are provided to feed your switcher directly or the graphics card provides a 10 bit linear keyer so logos can be inserted downstream from your switcher.
