DETECT software module A part of TELE and TELE Info broadcast automation and informational and graphic on-air design software suite is an additional program for automatic advertising insert by DTMF-signal or by musical fragment - “bumper” (jingle, signature tune of the advertising block). Operation principle: at a regional (retransmitting) station a special program module called DETECT constantly listens to incoming audio coming from the head station and “recognizes” (picks out from incoming audio) the DTMF-signal sound or the musical signature. The sample for comparison can be set separately for the left and right audio channel. The program works together with the schedule, and upon detection of the specified sound sample it issues a certain command, forcing TELE/TELE Info to start the output of selected video blocks depending on current system time, or to stop the output. In addition, the program can perform similar actions by accepting GPI-signals through the Game-port of a computer. For example, from control panel in the studio or from the block of CUE-signals identification Softel SE3067. In a similar way, a system of local advertising insert in EuroNews, EuroSport and Animal Planet channels on St.-Petersburg cable TV was implemented on the basis of Stream ALPHA SDI cards and TELE Info software.

PLAYOUT AUTOMATION AND BROADCAST DESIGN SOFTWARE

Playout automation, on-air text and graphics design server with interactive TV support TELE Info is a content playout and on-air text and graphics design server supporting SMS-chat output, voting results playout and other interactive features. With vast possibilities for text and graphics design of displayed video material and pass-through signal, much more extensive than those of TELE 2.2, TELE Info helps to organize a «Bloomberg» or RAI-24 style information channel. The design of those channels is distinguished by high informational and graphic intensity simultaneous output of several crawls, animated logos, and information fields with constant content update. TELE Info application will also help to organize a personal music channel fully automated clip rotation (by vote) with titles (song name, artist, etc.) in combination with SMS-chat and internet voting. The application does not require any additional equipment (synchronizers, mixers, transcoders, nonlinear editing systems, etc.) and allows to execute graphic information, video and audio overlay directly over the pass through signal.

TELE Info package includes • SMS-Terminal application, which is designed for on-air process automation, and receiving calls and SMS-messages from mobile phones and external programs (particularly via Internet). • Character Generation program Alpha Pro. • TELE 2.2 content playout and on-air text and graphics design server.

Additional Key features: • Broadcasting text and multimedia (graphic) messages (SMS). Moderating incoming messages. • Vote holding with the results scale display and a possibility to connect equipment for telephone vote option. • Automatic clip rotation by vote. Clip playback starts when it collects the majority of the votes. • Automatic blocks output from RSS sources. • Titling “on-the-fly” during news block output or organization of live broadcasts in the studio. • Picture-in-Picture mode with video clips and incoming digital streams. • Built-in module for programming and employment of personal applications written in Visual Basic. This helps to adapt the system for broadcasting in mixed mode (on-air broadcasting together with already prepared schedule playout). • Support for personal applications and scripts written in different programming languages, including Visual Basic and VBScript in HTML-pages. • Subtitles for movies (clips) displayed by the system using ready SRT-files. • Using the following elements in same schedule in any combination: • Streams coming from various video signal capturing devices. The source of digital stream can be a controller with IEEE1394 DV capture interface, “multipurpose TV Tuner” (different cards and USB-devices for video signal capture), or a web-camera. All digital streams can be scaled, colour corrected and sound adjusted, can be displayed in full-screen or picture-in-picture mode. • Synchronously with the start of every schedule element it is possible to overlay an additional unlimited number of text and graphics elements (secondary events) over it: • Animation files without restrictions of real cumulative output area (sequence of graphic files (TGA) with alpha-channel); • Titles (Windows fonts, Unicode coding supported), can be rotated by 90 degrees; • Crawls and Rolls. • Output one or several crawls and rolls not only over the pass-through signal, but also over clips and incoming digital signal (Stream) used as schedule elements. • Moving text can contain static or animated logos. Crawls can have markers assigned to them for pause or speed changes. • It is possible to perform output and editing of the text in reverse direction, in conformity with selected national font. Crawls can run from left to right and from right to left.

Program Module DV Delay Both TELE and TELE Info systems for playback automation and graphics overlay contain the additional free of change program that allows to delay the pass-through signal for specified period of time. The maximum delay period depends only on the capacity of the used Disk Arrays The technical implementation of signal delay is the following. The pass-through TV signal is fed to the input of the hardware converter Analog-DV* via S-Video. Then converted DV-stream comes to PC through IEE 1394 interface. The delayed signal in such a way appears to be the input signal for TELE 2.2 system. Thus the insert of all video clips, logotypes, horizontal crawls etc is carrying out not by overlying the live TV signal that comes to the input of the Stream ALPHA Plus PCI-E card but using the delayed signal from Analog-DV converter.

Supported video formats TELE 2.2 supports the majority of the widespread formats that exist today: • TS, MP4, MOV, MPG, AVI, VOB, WMV, ASF, etc. • All resolutions - 480i 480p 576i 576p 720/24p 720/50p 720/60p 1080/24p 1080/50i 1080/60i, as well as clips with random resolution taken from the Internet - Youtube HD, QuickTime trailers, etc. • Regardless of PAL/NTSC, transcoding* is performed when necessary. • Regardless of SD/HD, transcoding SD-> HD or HD-> SD is performed when necessary. • Regardless of progressive or interlaced source file, transcoding 24p-> 50i, 60i-> 50i, 24p-> 60i, 50i-> 60i is performed when necessary * transcoding is performed in real time without preliminary rendering during playback

PLAYOUT AUTOMATION AND BROADCAST DESIGN SOFTWARE

Chroma key TELE Info software together with Stream ALPHA Plus PCI-E and Stream WIND SDI-II cards can now provide a rear projection (chroma key) with an option of adding various effects, titles, animation and graphics over the resulting video signal. The system works in real time, which is essential in broadcasting studio conditions. It operates by placing the object of your video filming between the two layers of computer graphics.

Dynamic title

+ On Air

Chroma key

Dynamic background

You can use any computer graphics (static images, dynamically varying compositions and animations) or video clip as a back layer (background). The background behind the actor can also change in real time, for example, if it is animated or if the script implies a transition from one image to another with the use of a special effect. In the meantime, the object of the video filming in the studio is placed against a blue or green background and is being â&#x20AC;&#x153;cut outâ&#x20AC;? due to the chroma key effect. You will no longer need expensive background scenes, all the imaginary background can be created on a computer. The titles, crawls containing different incoming messages or information on-the-fly, computer graphics and animations are set as a front (top) layer (in the Logo Editor of TELE/TELE Info or SMS Terminal software), which is overlayed over the object of the video filming with controllable transparency (alphachannel). On a program level the quantity of graphic layers can be unlimited, restricted only by the computer processing power. The output of a picture on the top layer can be synchronized with the output of a picture on the background (for example, a change of the weather chart images).

STREAM LABS SYSTEMS OPERATING PRINCIPLE

STREAM LABS offers advanced solutions for system integrators and video professionals to build modern, low-cost CG systems. These solutions are demonstrated in the sample block-diagrams, they can also be modified to fit specific ideas.

Mode 1: CG connection in bypass mode When there is no possibility to connect the CG through the mixer, Stream Labs CG system can be connected in a bypass mode. Titles and computer graphics overlaid over the video signal are delivered from the CG to the input of Stream Alpha/ WIND SDI card and the result of CG operation taken from the card output is going on air. In other words, the card works as a mixer. * Control of external devices (ex. switcher) can be made possible only by using the playout automation software TELE 2.2 / TELE Info. Matrix Switcher

The Character Generator, which operates in this live on-air mode, must comply with several requirements. To avoid “black screen” during live broadcast, all Stream Alpha/WIND SDI cards are equipped with a bypass relay. If the computer power supply is switched off, or the bypass mode is activated, the output is connected directly to the input through relay contacts and the live video signal passes through the CG without any changes. Stream ALPHA Plus and Stream ALPHA Plus YUV cards also have a Preview output, which allows to view the information before broadcasting it on the air.

In addition, the CG can also control an external Matrix Switcher.

Mode 2: CG connection through the mixer For use with an external mixer with DSK (Down Stream Key) input all Stream Alpha/WIND SDI cards feature a special Key output for the key signal generated by the card. There is also a possibility to switch off the mixing of computer graphics (Fill) with the pass-through or black burst signal inside the card via alpha channel. The card setup program allows to adjust the positive and negative key signal delay relative to the output graphics within a wide range of values. Mixer №1 Video input signal №1
