On show at NAB, TitleBox IP allows TriCaster operators to create and deliver high quality animated graphics that can be used both for program titling and channel branding, with real-time on-air control. It provides total live control of all adjustable graphic parameters, including text selection, running speed and transitions, and its output stream is recognised automatically by TriCaster as a source for graphics overlay. It can be operated via any standard desktop or laptop PC, and connected directly to an existing network, allows pre-constructed or live title and channel branding graphics to be streamed straight into an IP network without need for external video inputs for key and fill.

“TitleBox is one of the most popular and successful elements of our product range, providing character generation and channel branding at thousands of sites around the world,” says PlayBox CEO Vassil Lefterov. “TitleBox IP makes these capabilities available to a growing number of broadcasters who are using NewTek’s TriCaster to generate and stream supplementary program content, as well as video creatives who are establishing online vertical-market television channels.”

The TitleBox IP feature set includes horizontal crawling text, vertically rolling credits and messages, still and animated logo graphics, analogue and digital clocks, banner slideshows and chat text with automated horizontal or vertical scrolling. Additional creative facilities include pre-constructed graphic components, video resizing (from live source or file), window-style display and website content ingest.

It also offers a powerful social media add-on. Accessed via standard web browser, SocialMediaBox enables program production and presentation creators to incorporate comments from multiple social network feeds quickly and efficiently into ready-for-broadcast streams that feed into TitleBox IP for display.
