NAB NY 2017: Brainstorm To Showcase Latest Real-Time Virtual Sets, Motion Graphics Solutions
Brainstorm will be showcasing the latest innovations of its real-time virtual sets and motion graphics solutions at NAB New York, Oct 18-19, 2017 at booth #N371.
InfinitySet 3, a new release of the resolution independent software, supporting 4K and beyond will be showcased at NAB New York 2017. InfinitySet 3 comes with a number of new innovations, including advanced rendering features such as PBR and HDR and support for Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, which can be combined with Brainstorm’s eStudio engine to create the best of both worlds; an ultra-realistic gaming technology output with data-driven broadcast-quality graphics and chroma-keyed talent with endless possibilities for production studios to dramatically raise their production value while lowering costs.
The Combined Render Engine feature greatly simplifies the process more than any other solution on the market today as it does not require additional workstations or hardware such as studio mixers and can be easily integrated into any broadcaster’s existing installation.
Thanks to the patented TrackFree technology and its TeleTransporter feature, InfinitySet 3 can interchangeably use real, live input or pre-recorded footage as the background environment for the chroma-keyed talent while taking advantage of new features like VideoCAVE mixed reality applications and VideoGate. InfinitySet 3 will be deliverable shortly after the show.
Aston is a motion graphics creation, CG and playout system developed with the designers in mind, created from the ground up to be extremely user friendly so operators can concentrate on creation rather than pure operation.
Designed for a robust on-air operation, designers can create, manipulate, animate and perform last-minute changes, even while on-air. Aston enables the design team to change any of the attributes on the template in real-time making the improvement process easier and faster.
Premiered at IBC 2017, Neuron is a new integrated, MOS-compatible template-based system that allows for complex graphics integration not only in the newsroom, but also in most of the common broadcast workflows, enhancing the newsroom with the support of continuity and broadcast traffic as well.
Neuron transcends the newsroom to become an on-air graphics control system that enables the integration of Brainstorm’s powerful real-time high-quality 3D graphics engine into the broadcast workflow without the need for continuous input from designers.
VisualMedia, a joint solution to provide real-time 3D graphics visualization based on social media feeds and second screen data created by Brainstorm and never.no, allows for real-time representation of structured social media information by means of data-driven 3D motion graphics. VisualMedia is one of the results of both companies’ partnership in ‘Project VisualMedia’ developed from the Europe 2020 Horizon platform and is being shown in its final configuration at IBC, prior to its commercial release in January 2018.
Brainstorm will officially release SmartSet in the US at NAB New York. SmartSet is a highly cost-effective, easy to use template-based Virtual Set and Augmented Reality solution designed for small and local TV stations without the need to create the sets themselves, while still providing customized branding in a real-time 3D environment.
