What's new in chroma keying?
Our new real-time modular chroma keyer is ideal for any
live virtual production. It's our best chroma keyer
yet – both in features and output
picture quality, and it's winning the evaluations as a result. It uses
an extremely sophisticated
algorithm, and includes
numerous new key
for convincing edges, noise reduction, colour spill
processing, lighting compensation – as well as built-in colour correction and video delay. The Safire 3 Controller is a dedicated 3U touch screen control panel for Safire 3 and ideal for live use. Find out more...
What's new in video delay?
The ViViD 3G video delay is available in four versions and provides up to 110 seconds of video delay for matching any system delays. New features appearing on a Crystal Vision video delay for the first time include 3Gb/s support, integrated fibre input/output, video proc-amp and signal timing – with a framestore synchroniser on the 'S' versions making it possible to apply a long delay to a video path and lock the signal to a station reference using a neat single board solution.

What's new in station branding?
MultiLogo V132 and V432
New versions of the MultiLogo modular logo keyer - now with full audio processing and new video features ideal for on air use. MultiLogo V132, V132 8G, V432 and V432 8G all provide three layers of keying from a variety of internal and external sources, including a 4 GB or 8 GB video store with DRAM and Flash memory which can hold up to 500 still or animated logos. Now with audio mixing, which allows the output audio to be generated from a mix of the audio embedded on the video input and a voiceover sourced from either the internal audio stores or from an external AES input. Also new and designed for live on air use are partial presets which allow just some of the variables to be changed, plus the ability to now use all three keying layers while graphics are being transferred to MultiLogo.
