FireWriter DV character generator offers DV , S-Video and composite video inputs and outputs (September 24, 2001)
FOCUS Enhancements, Inc. is shipping FireWriter, a digital video character generator equipped with FireWire connections for use with video source, storage, and playback devices.

The FireWriter DV character generator offers DV (IEEE-1394), Y/C (S-Video) and composite video inputs and outputs and can be operated locally as a stand-alone character generator or remotely over a computer network or the Internet.

FireWriter delivers high-resolution, anti-aliases titles and character by character attributes like font, font size, color, shadow, outline, and 256 levels of transparency. Company logos and bugs can be created on a computer in applications such as Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator, then saved as JPEG images which can be imported directly to FireWriter using the built-in Ethernet connection. Users can then display their graphics and logos over incoming live video, gradients, or graphic backgrounds.

FireWriter includes special effects such as fades, wipes and eight speeds for scrolls and crawls. The product also includes special characters to support over 21 foreign languages. Pages can be displayed manually as in a slide show or automatically for use as a video billboard.

FireWriter features built-in networking and supports both RS-232 serial and FTP over Ethernet. By using industry standard protocols, FireWriter is easy to control from any computer on either your local area network or from the Internet. Projects, fonts, and logos can be easily transferred to or from a computer at the touch of a button.

FireWriter is the latest addition to the FOCUS family of unique DV products including MXProDV, DistanceDV Cables, and FireStore. FireWriter is available at an U.S. suggested retail price of $2195.00 and is marketed through the FOCUS Enhancements worldwide distribution network.
