VertigoXmedia VxASI Adds GigE and DVB-ASI InputsFor the VertigoXG Graphics System (March 29, 2006)
VertigoXmedia, a leading provider of broadcast graphics software and hardware, today introduced a new option for its VertigoXG full-featured SD/HD graphics system, which will be on display at NAB2006. By providing DVB-ASI and GigE inputs with real-time PID selection, demuxing, and decoding of MPEG-2 video and audio streams, the optional VxASI module converts the VertigoXG into a single-box solution for distributed branding, switching, and localizing of content.
The VertigoXG makes it easy to create data-driven, templated broadcast graphics in HD and SD by simply dragging and dropping graphics elements from a customizable library. With its unsurpassed graphics rendering, clip capture and playback, SD/HD crossconversion, and dynamic data-driven playback performance, the VertigoXG provides single- or dual-channel graphics and video playout capabilities for a wide range of advanced real-time broadcast applications.
Installing the VxASI option adds four DVB-ASI and GigE inputs to the VertigoXG, eliminating the need for external ASI IRDs or decoders. VxASI combines hardware-accelerated PID stream selection, error detection, and ASI-demuxing with software-driven MPEG-2 decoding to provide the most powerful and flexible ASI input architecture possible. The decoded video and audio streams are sent to the VertigoXG rendering and compositing engines as standard SDI or HD-SDI video inputs and can be fully branded, DVEd, mixed, and outputted as either SDI or HD-SDI signals. In addition, multiple ASI and video inputs allow the incoming ASI program feed to be mixed with local ASI or SDI content via the VertigoXGs built-in A/B switcher and clip player.
