So, how can a CG be really powerful and also be very easy to use? Isn’t it impossible to have great features and make them useable and accessible? At Compix, when we design our products, we keep two very unique types of users in mind – the graphic artist and the operator. The result is Compix Persona!
Prior to its release in North America, Compix Persona has been sold and used in over 800 locations around the world, in major broadcasting facilities and international sporting events.
Compix Persona is built around our revolutionary VirtualOverlay™ technology—a new way of thinking about and working with sophisticated 3D broadcast graphics. Users can now create up to six completely independent channels of motion-filled graphics and composite them virtually, using only one physical output. This new innovative technology can potentially save tens of thousands of dollars by combining the functionality of six character generator units into one. The use of VirtualOverlay can also free up valuable resources in switcher M/Es and DSKs by combining the graphic elements prior to being mixed with video sources.
Each VirtualOverlay has its own timeline and includes unlimited objects, such as 2D and 3D texts and shapes, images, and clips per overlay channel. All of these graphic elements can be quickly and easily inserted or taken out with Compix Persona’s LiveAction™ keyboard, which comes standard in all Compix Persona systems. The commands that are readily accessible from this dedicated, clearly labeled, color-coded custom keyboard allow operators to quickly control the VirtualOverlay display and all graphic page output controls. Dynamic data and automated control plug-ins can be used in any of the VirtualOverlay channels.
3D text and shapes can be created directly in Compix Persona, and 3D objects from applications such as 3ds MAX®, Maya®, and LightWave® can be placed directly in the canvas for real-time playback in the X file format. No pre-rendering is necessary.
Adobe Photoshop® files and Adobe Illustrator® files can be imported into Compix Persona while maintaining their original individual layers. A live input source can be captured and used in the graphic layout as part of the design. All graphics created can be rendered to disk as an image sequence for use with any non-linear system, such as Apple Final Cut Pro®.
Persona includes all of these integrated features with real-time 3D/2D objects, moving clips, key framed animations, LiveAction custom command actions keyboard, and VirtualOverlay technology, and Persona is priced at $29,995 USD as a full turnkey HD/SD system.
