New from DVEO – the broadcast division of Computer Modules – the LogoSerter now inserts graphics, logos and text anywhere on H.264 or MPEG-2 video content. Two versions are available: DVB-ASI input and output, or IP input and output.
A real-time software-based system, the LogoSerter inserts images and text anywhere on SD or HD live streams with any degree of transparency. It works by decoding the transport stream, overlaying the logo, and transcoding the result. The system enables broadcasters, cable companies, and content to ‘brand’ their video content with images that are not easily removed.
The graphics, logos, and text can be static, blinking, or – new for this release – rotating. The system supports 1080i, 720p, and 480i, while logos and graphics can be created in several formats. Windows-based, the system also features schedule-based logo insertion.
Other new features include a news feed from RSS, an optional clock display, an optional temperature display, and optional transcoding from MPEG-2 to H.264 or vice-versa.
Laszlo Zoltan, sales manager for DVEO, commented: “Smart cable operators are looking to monetise video content via sidebars and crawls. Our updated LogoSerter inserts scrolling text with programmable fonts and background colors, for crawling messages and emergency alerts. We can also create customised systems to meet customers’ needs.”
