Intuition XG Insights & Highlights
Rich Integration with Imagestore 750
All the Playout Capabilities for the Most Advanced Branding and Promotional Graphics
High-Quality HD/SD Character Generation

Rich Integration with Imagestore 750

The tight integration between the Intuition XG graphics coprocessor and the Imagestore 750 master control and channel branding processor provides independent control of eight virtual keyer layers, either via automation or from the iMC panel. A full preview of each graphics layer is available to the operator.
The Intuition XG can operate in an "Instream" mode, with the coprocessor being fed the program input after the Imagestore 750’s mix stage, and with the graphics output to one of the Imagestore 750’s fill and key inputs. The process ensures both graphics and DVEs are performed by the Intuition XG, and this allows advanced DVE and promo sequences to be prepared more easily.
