Pinnacle Systems, Inc., a leader in digital video solutions, today announced the availability of Pinnacle Deko 1000HD - a cost-effective, broadcast quality solution for high definition (HD) real-time graphics creation and playback. Deko 1000HD is designed for a wide range of live-to-air applications ranging from sports events to MOS-enabled newscasts.
Deko 1000HD provides a straightforward path for video professionals who need to add HD production capabilities but do not require the advanced features of Pinnacle’s flagship Deko 3000HD system. Deko 1000HD delivers in native 720p and 1080i HD resolutions the full set of capabilities, internal clip playback, real-time motions and effects found in the standard definition Deko 1000 model
“Deko character generators are the cornerstone of live events and newscasts worldwide,” said Matt Danilowicz, vice president and general manager of broadcast for Pinnacle. “As the industry shifts to high definition, the same functionality, performance and creative flexibility broadcasters rely on in Deko 1000 is now available for HD.”
Deko 1000HD provides broadcasters with:
* Full 720p and 1080i HD resolutions - Many graphics systems upconvert SD graphics to HD, resulting in visible flaws. Deko 1000HD delivers native HD graphics that meet the increased quality demands of HD viewers.
* Easy SD to HD transition – Deko 1000HD incorporates the same broadcaster-focused workflow found on standard definition Deko systems. Pinnacle Deko 1000HD also supports the simple use of existing assets in the 16:9 HD format.
*Cost-effective HD – Pinnacle Deko 1000HD is priced to provide a complete solution for local broadcasters, as well as larger facilities seeking entry into HD or that require additional Deko seats for specific applications and workgroups.
