‘Morphing’ 3D graphics


Leading provider of real-time 3D broadcast graphics Orad Hi-Tec Systems will unveil Morpho 3.0, the latest version of its 3D character generator at next week’s IBC2012 at Amsterdam RAI.

Morpho is a native 64-bit application offering 3D real-time graphics rendering. Smart graphic design tools and flexible playout capabilities are integrated within the application, facilitating an efficient and easy 3D workflow. The new Morpho version 3.0 introduces many new features; improves usability, workflow, ease of use and connection to external systems and data sources.

Now Morpho dual-channel machines can now be configured to enable two independent programme outputs (PGM+PGM), alternatively to the existing preview / programme configuration. The functionality gives broadcasters the option to broadcast two different languages, or split the production to full-frame content and supers / lower thirds, and more.

Leveraging user-generated social media content, Morpho can incorporate content from Twitter and Facebook as part of the graphics. In conjunction with Morpho’s easy-to-use approach, the connection to social media data sources does not require scripting or programming knowledge.

Morpho’s graphic customisation capabilities have been expanded to include full 3D transition effects, the creation of custom-made animation and rich-text effects, as well as the ability to group and animate objects. Morpho also streams web content, such as webpages and Skype, mapping the stream as a texture onto 2D or 3D objects. Some menus, like the text editor, have been refined to accommodate new functions and increase usability.
