Quite often content needs to be created on site by channel creator, broadcasters and Hospitality Management. While using their own content, sometimes channel creator also wants to stream some live events either through their own video feed or other video feeds available through IP streaming. Others wish to add data or text to annotate the video or provide emergency alerts.
Our PLAY 2 AIR™ 2- 12ch IP is a cost-effective player that inserts video clips, ads, graphics, text, and logos anywhere on your content in real time. As you may expect, it creates its own IP streams and inserts/overlays the graphics on outgoing IP video streams.
Scheduling of Video file, graphics can easily be done by drag and drop easy to use browser based interface. Graphics can be in several formats.
The position of the graphics, transparency, and fade characteristics can be configured via a web based user interface.
The PLAY 2 AIR can also insert SCTE 35 or cue tones in outgoing streams for the subsequent sites to insert their own regional – local ads based on SCTE 35/cue tone triggers. The PLAY 2 AIR can also insert resources in the incoming stream by GPIO, Cue tone, SCTE 35 or on schedule.
Also graphical elements can be inventoried on the on-board hard drives. Large local graphical libraries can be created for quick use under dynamic real world events.
Graphical elements such as fancy fonts, boxes, borders, background colors, and identifiers can also be used to enhance the video content. Inside these distinct areas you can insert scrolling or horizontally crawling text.
