Orad bringing solutions to streamline broadcast production13 February 2012
A developer of solutions that are designed to help broadcasters streamline production and maximise productivity, Orad will be highlighting TD Control, PowerPlay, PlayMaker (pictured) and Interact at BVE.
TD Control allows the TD to select different video box compositions and assign different video sources to each of the video boxes, enabling tasks that, says Orad, could not have been achieved before, like switching on air from six video sources to completely different video sources with one click of a button. As soon as the video box combination is selected and the video sources are assigned, the preview channel is instantly updated, and with a single keystroke the layout goes on air.
PowerPlay, Orad’s fast turnaround editorial sports workflow, offers fast sports production tools for managing ingest and sports assets as well as creating highlights.
PlayMaker, the SD/HD slow motion video server, meets the challenges of live sports productions with eight I/O channels of multi-format ingest, synchronised slow motion replay, and a variety of fast editing tools.
Meanwhile, Interact enables TV anchors and presenters to directly adjust and manipulate broadcast graphics by using their touchscreens, video walls, and other broadcast visual devices. The companion application, Orad Touch, allows presenters to control the content and flow of production from their iPad while moving around the TV set freely.
