|Customized for Your Needs Right Out of the Box|
TV-Ticker software customization options include:
|Runs on Standard, Inexpensive Hardware Components:|
The items below are generally provided by the customer and aren't bundled with the TV-Ticker system. WorldFlash Software can provide a separate proposal for any necessary hardware.
TV-Ticker requires a standard PC running Windows 2000 or Windows XP, and a fully featured video card such as the ATI All-In-Wonder®, Matrox® Marvel, or NVidia® "Personal Cinema" AGP cards that include S-Video input and output connections.TV-Ticker does not require a separate "scan-converter" box to achieve broadcast-ready output. An external frame-buffer or TBC (Time Base Corrector) unit may be required to properly gen-lock with your station's video signal.
How does this work? TV-Ticker leverages the power of the latest generation of
silicon miracles from NVidia (GeForce4), Matrox (G450) and ATI Technologies (RV200)
to actually do all the
work required to make the electronic round-trip from Analog World to the High-res Digital
Universe and back.
The software-generated news crawl is overlayed onto the incoming analog
studio feed by the same inexpensive (< $150) component.
(coming soon) entails replacing the video card with a newer generation, when
that feature becomes available on-chip.
