Multi-camera production systems
All systems now offer four or eight full mix/effects (M/E) channels, expanding the system's switching performance. Producers can use these M/Es to generate layered and composited real-time video, produce sub-mixes in the main video program, and output content as a secondary program - all with complete switcher behaviors, transitions, overlays, multi-source layering and virtual sets. Additional enhancements now standard across the entire product line include advanced virtual sets with new camera motion controls; new "holographic" virtual sets that blend panoramic images with layered and composited video; broad media publishing functions for simultaneous multi-channel content delivery; expanded buffers for creating hundreds of custom motion and animated graphics; new, unique remote robotic camera controls; and extensive macro and automation functions that greatly simplify the execution of system commands during a live program and integrate with venues that already use comprehensive MIDI automation.
