Virtual studio Focus Lite SD SDI

Virtual studio -SD SDI digital video signal

We present the "Focus" family 3D graphics studios. The main distinctive feature of the family is scalability from low-budget studios to HDTV solutions.
"Focus" systems allow you to organize a wide range of television programs and other video production possessing the quality of the world's leading TV companies.

A full-fledged real-time synthesizing 3D graphics system based on a personal computer;
Automatic or interactive control with the ability to integrate with video servers, titling and other external equipment to perform operation by a common scenario.

The Features of "Focus" Virtual Studio:

? Unique chromakey comparable in quality to Ultimatte
? Support for various analog and digital formats
? Functional compatibility and integrability with the most up-to-date professional video equipment
? Unique technology of "Virtual Cameras" not requiring special sensors for controlling the focal distance and attitude
? Limitless possibilities of creating special effects of every sort and kind
? Animated virtual characters embedded in the live shooting process
? Interactive real-time 3D-graphics broadcast design

"Focus" virtual studios - shooting without the necessity to build real scenery, minimum shooting personnel and television equipment, simplified as much as possible user interface for the real-time operators.

"Focus" breaks the barriers of high price and complexity of workflow to create new opportunities in using virtual studios in television production.

Basic Configurations of the Focus Virtual Studio's
Focus Lite Analog Full-Fledged Virtual Studio. A live actor image is integrated into the 3D virtual studio and interacts with it in real time. The studio is interactively controlled by the operator's commands (from a touchscreen devices, bluetooth, iPad, GPI, keyboard, etc.)
Focus Lite SD SDI The same as Focus Lite Analog, but with digital inputs/outputs of the video signal, which provides higher quality of the resultant image.
Focus Lite HD SDI The same as Focus Lite Analog, but with digital HD video inputs and outputs.
Update Focus Lite to Full Version Update HotActions Live to HotActions Full including instruments for virtual interior creation and data protection, included database export from 3DS MAX
Additonal two video channels Two additional analog video channels with independent chroma key and audio delay per channel
Record of output signal at hard disk This option allows to record of the output video / audio to the hard disk simultaneously video output

Typical virtual studios use tracking systems worth about $ 40,000 per a camera channel.
"Focus" allows you to use an unlimited number of virtual cameras in the scene, which can move within the scene changing the focus, the real camera remaining motionless.
All this allows you to significantly reduce the working area of the film studio, the amount of scenery and the staff expenses.

 A Virtual studio
A Whole Studio on One Computer. The "Focus" system includes all the necessary computer equipment to build a virtual studio. It remains for you to connect video cameras and microphones to the studio inputs and appropriate screen monitors and recording equipment - to the outputs. Modules of time correction, color keying, video processing and mixing signals, sound delay - all is included in the equipment on the same computer!

All standards: from amateur to professional. The prices are very moderate, and still "Focus" allows processing video signals of various types, from S-video to HD SDI. Meanwhile, the number of the input channels with independent chromakey is easily increased, and time-base correction (TBC) allows using nonsynchronous video sources. Even the minimal configuration includes two independent input channels. A unique real-time chromakey module included in all configurations allows to qualitatively process thin and semitransparent objects. The module is specially adapted to the possibility of using degraded sources or nonprofessional equipment.

Cardinal reduction in the expenditure for studio equipment. Owing to the unique technologies applied, you can achieve quite good results even when using the simplest studio equipment - static nonprofessional light, stationary cameras, painted backcloth - the minimum possible level of initial costs is about $400. Of course, to achieve the highest level of performance when working with shadows, semitransparent objects, smoke, etc., you will have to use professional sets of studio equipment. Typical virtual studios use tracking systems worth about $40.000 per a camera channel. "Focus" allows you to use an unlimited number of virtual cameras in the scene, which can move within the scene changing the focus, the real camera remaining motionless. All this allows you to significantly reduce the working area of the film studio, the amount of scenery, the staff expenses.

Provides the widest range of possibilities for creating 3D scenes and special effects. The system realizes the abilities of the 3D graphics program 3D Studio Max. Using video streams as textures (materials) allows you to overlay video (previously recorded AVI files and directly processed live video) on objects of any form. Moreover, the objects can be animated, subjected to morphing, illuminated from beneath or behind, etc. In extended configurations, it is possible to use several independent video streams (from cameras and video files) simultaneously.

Quick results in a short period of time. The system is delivered as a turnkey solution. It only remains to perform the required commutation according to the current settings, automatic chromakey setting being done with a button click. The real-time operation is completely interactive and can be controlled by one operator, who is not required to be an experienced engineer or designer. Any objects (including virtual cameras) and scene parameters can be controlled automatically, with the ability to interact with video servers, titling equipment, and other external equipment by the common scenario or interactively, with the keyboard, mouse, joystick, etc. The designers' basic tools are well established and widespread packages (3D MAX, Photoshop, etc.).

Multifunctional system. "Focus" can be used not only as a virtual studio, but also as a live broadcast design system using real-time 3D graphics - that is animated computer characters, virtual plasma display panels, business graphics, complex titles, and then some. "Focus" may play the role of a computer-based multichannel mixer as well.

System with rich possibilities of enhancement and development. "Focus" is easily integrated with the available equipment. Broadcast mixers, titling equipment, video servers, encoders (in particular, DCS series of DVL, Forward, FD1000, MV401, etc.) mutual control protocols are available. It is possible to connect various control devices: side-mounted keyboards, touchscreens, virtual gloves, mouses, camera tracking systems, robotized cameras. Interfaces for displaying dynamic information such as telephone poll, temperature, time, etc. are available.

To enhance the abilities of the Focus HD SDI Virtual Studio, there are different options purchased separately. This options are available for Focus SDI configuration:

- Genlock - synchronizing video output to the external signal;
- One additional input channel
- Passive Breakout Box
- Passive Breakout Box enhanced (Used to connect video and audio signal sources and receivers in the virtual studio configurations with additional input video channels and the GenLock option)
- Active Breakout Box
- Rack-Mounting Kit
- Hot-Swappable Power Supply of Improved Reliability

Important: Focus Virtual Studios set includes an assembled and configured system unit and a set of cables for connecting video/audio signals.
Optional equipment for Virtual Studio as monitor, breakout box etc. are purchased separately

Software Options for the Focus Virtual Studios:

Studios are supplied with two variants of software: HotActions and HotActions Lite
In addition to the hardware/software system Focus proper, the appropriate scenes (design projects of interiors) created in a compatible format with Focus are required. The standard delivery set includes a small set of training samples and entry-level scenes. HotActions Lite solutions do not include tools for creating 3D scenes and imply ordering the content from third-party developers.
We offer you to take advantage of services provided by our business partner D-Graphica
