New graphics production toolsets unveiled by Avid
Avid has announced the availability of new graphics solutions that deliver rich graphics and video capabilities, and broadcast enhancements. The newly updated Avid graphics toolset provides a complete and integrated workflow for incorporating real-time graphics into live and studio productions.
With its modular architecture, the graphics toolset can be customised for a wide variety of media environments, and integrates seamlessly with solutions across the MediaCentral Platform as well as third-party news and editing applications.
The new 4Designer graphics authoring software provides a solution for creating 2D and 3D motion graphics in a wide range of resolutions. The feature-rich toolset gives broadcasters the tools they need to create real-time visual content for news, elections, sports events, weather segments, business reports, and more. As the successor to the 3Designer, 4Designer offers more power, speed, and new features in a more modern interface, while maintaining the same workflows and compatibility with existing 3Designer templates.
The new version of Maestro gives broadcasters a complete on-air graphics solution that enables them to quickly and easily manage and play out high-resolution graphics and animations. New features include the Maestro Media Engine, which supports video ingest and playout, native user rights management, rich graphics templates, and efficient repurposing of graphic content – all from an intuitive user interface. With its modular architecture, Maestro can be customised for a wide variety of production environments.
