Orad's live production integrated solution covers the entire spectrum of the digital workflow from ingest to playout for both video and graphics all managed by the iFind Media Asset Management solution.
Video ingest is scheduled by the iAcquire ingest scheduling module that controls Orad's VJ server. While content is ingested locally it is also captured remotely by the Orad's Orbit storage solution. During ingest metadata is added and using Orad's video editor the story is put together. The iFind system sets up the workflow rules and moves the content around based on the defined logic up to the moment that the content goes to air.
On the graphics front a new version of Maestro, Orad's enterprise graphics solution will be presented. Maestro is fully integrated with the iFind MAM system allowing the coherent approach for media management shared between video and graphics. The integration between Maestro and Orad's mapping solution – WorldMapper has been further extended offering now an integrated solution allowing the journalists to access the maps from their Orad's NRCS plugin. In addition, the interface between Maestro and Orad's Social Media hub has been extended allowing two ways communications between the first and the second screen.
Complementing Maestro and the rest of Orad's graphics solutions is the new 4Designer authoring software. 4Designer provides an even more comprehensive real time 3D graphics authoring environment, enabling designers to create graphics for all broadcast situations. The new 4Designer brings significantly improved production tools for artists, enhanced animation controls, multiple working viewports, additional geometry import options, and real-time motion blur effects for graphics.
TD Control is an innovative live production hub which consolidating with a click of a button different content such as: video inputs, video clips, sophisticated graphics and data for either video boxes or video walls. TD Control provides tremendous flexibility, including the ability to switch, while on air, from six video sources to six completely different video sources with one click of a button. TD Control can be further extended beyond video boxes and video wall presentations. It could be used to generate and control lower thirds, bugs and any other types of on air graphics using sophisticated logic, as well as the ability to control video server clips and play them to air.
