With advances in display technology, global audiences now demand a graphic-rich viewing experience. Accentuating your content with dynamic, multi-layered broadcast graphics is more important than ever before. While the digital media offers an intuitive graphic experience, traditional playout systems are unable to keep-up to the challenge.
Broadcast Graphics Automation
Amagi’s cloud-native playout platform can facilitate automatic scheduling of graphics as per the TV channel’s requirements. For example, Now/Next/Later slate between the programs can use the rule-based system developed by Amagi to automatically pull thumbnails for upcoming programs based on the playlist information. This way, TV networks do not need to manually insert graphics, and can save time by creating templates.
Examples of broadcast graphics automation
Using Adobe After-Effects Templates
Amagi’s broadcast playout platform can sync with Adobe After-Effects to dynamically pull graphics. The process of creating new graphics is very simple. TV Network’s or Amagi’s creative team can easily create placeholders for primary and secondary videos, and text. Each template is saved individually as an XML file. All files, including the footage and metadata are saved in an archive file, and uploaded to Amagi cloud. Once on cloud, the template can be inserted by creating rules to change templates after any given time interval.
